post #74056 of 91824

I'm in love with the Brown CXL Alden Indy but I can only find it with the neocork soles. Does anyone know of a store that has them in stock with the commando soles? I know that LS has them as the Ultimate Indy, but they won't have them in again till the fall of 2014.

 

Thanks

These would not be for work, just for going out. I'm leaning towards the wing tip boot but the shoe mart does not have them in my size.

Thanks for all the replies so far guys!

I have just sold an unlined BB LHS pair to fella who has yet to pay me (auction ended Sunday). Why do you bid on something and them slow pay someone. I'll never get it. The guy I sold them to asked me if I'd break in his shoes in the future. As in....he'd buy the shoes and I'd wear them to break them in and get patina. Suuuuuuper strange, right? I think The Queen has someone who breaks in her shoes for her....

I'm pretty sure there was no Alden branding whatsoever on them.

Your buyer sounds interesting. When I buy something on eBay, I pay immediately.

100 YRS thanks for sharing the link to Harrison Limited. I thought i'd se all the sites carrying Aldens. Saw some models I hadnt seen before. Some tempting! I have been looking for a tan suede plain to blucher with a rubber sole and Harrison has had the closest model to that target shoe that I've seen


Anyone know of a Tan or snuff suede PTB on a Lug rubber sole or even a crepe sole would work. I like the crepe but do they track a bunch of debris into the house? I don;t want to be vacuuming everytime I wear the shoes smile.gif


thanks anyone who my have a line on such a shoe as I have searched for months for a suede shoe on something other than flex.


thanks

The left shoe looks fine to me, but I immediately noticed that the brogue holes on the right shoe looked a little off-center, twisted to the side a little. (See photos.) The top view doesn't seem to look so bad.

One the one hand, I spent $500 on these shoes, so I'd like them to be made better. On the other hand, they are hand-crafted, and some people believe it's the little imperfections that make hand-crafting worthwhile.

Personally, I'm leaning towards the "I spent $500, so I'd like them to be made better" hand, but...am I too picky?

I'd appreciate any opinions.

Thanks in advance,
Christopher

I'd send them back. They are too far off and look like seconds to me.

I was told it should be $740 when I got on the list a couple of weeks ago.

Do they charge more for certain colors of shell? The #8 captoe boot was $670 when I picked it up last month from alden DC. The Ravello chukkas from Alden SF were $720 and the cigar boots are now $740. I'm trying to figure out why the discrepancy in pricing.

Nice! It might just be me but I find the variations in leather like that much more appealing than any shell. I would get these if I didn't already have the CXL Dovers.


Ordered. Thanks for the heads up.

Black and 8 are cheaper than the rare colors; Whiskey, Ravello, and Cigar. $670 and $740 seem to be about right for the 2014 prices.

Dang, those are superb. Kind of glad that they don't have any 10Ds left. Now I don't have to think about it. :-)
