You gents may be right.  All I remember is that it was a medallion toe boot, and didn't really commit any other details to memory.

epc2 - i think you're correct on that one.

Thanks for the comments on the black boots guys.

I wish I knew where these came from. These were a gift to me from a friend who knows how much I’m shell addict.

Lack of interest has never really been the unsurmountable obstacle in this sort of endeavor.  However, I wish you the best of luck if you decide to follow through with this undertaking.

when I look at the #alden tag on Instagram, I would say a large % of the pictures are from Asia.  maybe up to 40%.

Right, this is the one I was thinking of:

http://leathersoulhawaii.com/2008/06/26/alden-shoes-the-sf-boot/

In the past there have been SF members that worked with certain retailers on group MTOs (Alden DC, Epaulet, Leffot, Leather Soul), but I think this was the only one that was actually advertised as the "SF Boot" and I think it's been a long time since anyone actually had a successful group MTO actually completed with a third party retailer. There's a bunch in the works but none have been confirmed by Alden.

I've seen more and more Aldens on the street over the past year or so. Cordovan full strap and LHS are popular, as are CXL indy boots. various chukka boots (suede and cordovan) and the occasional longwing. With Leffot, Alden NYC and J Crew all moving plenty of Aldens in NY, we are going to see more and more of them. Of course, Gucci/Ferragamo bit loafers continue to rain supreme.

I agree. My first order of business when acquiring color 8 boots is to swap brown laces for black laces. My first order of business when acquiring color 8 shoes is to swap brown laces (or whatever color they come with) for black laces.

I have seen them before on the Barrie last, but I don't know what last Mac's are on. He has a good number of MTOs from when they used to do them.
