Looks like they have the exact same one Harrisonlimited had. The edging on the sole and heel might be a different color but you can't tell from the pics provided on the pelle website.

I've always been jealous when somebody posts pics of the rare Horween logo stamped on the inside of a shoe or boot tongue. I finally got one, but it certainly wasn't what I was expecting. Has anybody ever seen one of these before? It actually looks like a square-footage marking for the total area of the shell. At least that's my guess. Thoughts?

 

nice looking boots. I would send them to b.nelson, im sure he could flip that tongue over and expose that awesomeness.

just kidding. no, not really. :embar:

The Smiths' "Please, please, please. Let me get what I want" comes to mind. Haven't had cigar shell in a long time...

these only have one wear, so no significant input (IMO) from my feet themselves

obviously not as bad as the LWBs that are in discussion (and in my case, less obvious I think due to the tanker design)

 

maybe alden just has a thing for curved right shoes :rotflmao:

 

Alden doesn't have a monopoly on curved right shoes.  I found that one of my C&J boots has the exact same curve on the right boot.  Didn't notice it at all till I saw them on my boot rack the other day.  And the wear of the sole on that right boot does reflect the curvature although I never felt it when I was wearing them.

All opinions are welcome, and thank you again.

Have to disagree... I own seven pairs of Alden LWBs and none have this issue with alignment of the brogue pattern on the toe or any other part of the shoe.  Also, the AE MacNeil isn't even in the same league as the Alden LWB.  You happened to have gotten a poorly constructed right shoe to the first pair (it shouldn't happen, but it will on occasion).  Your second pair looks perfectly fine to me based on the pictures provided.

 

I hope you are happy with the replacement pair and enjoy them often.  All the best...

Haha, awesome Doc!

post #74172 of 99235

Just picked my first Aldens with help from this thread, so I thought I'd post for the first time too. I also have a question.

 

These are the unlined PTB, flex sole in color 8. The Alden DC salesperson said that the shoes were first released for Leather Soul, but Alden did a special run for this shop afterward.

 

My question is around the crease. I've only worn them in the store and at home on carpet (about 2 hours total), and they developed a crease near the big toe of each foot. There is extra material because this was the best fit I could get. The 8.5D were tight, so I went with 8.5E. The width and length are perfect, but there is quite a bit of space between my toes and the top of the shoe. I believe that's what's causing the creasing.

 

Should I have gone with the 8.5D expecting it to stretch and not have to deal with the extra material? Is this quick creasing abnormal?

 

Thanks for your help and for all the great advice and pics in this thread.

Whenever MrDV posts, I sound like Golum drooling for the 'precious'

We need a family picture day, just so we can all hail the finely curated DV collection worship2.gif

^ Those look fine to me. It is normal for these to "crease" quickly as they are unlined. Sounds like you picked the right size if they fit right in the width and length. If the ball of your foot is where it's supposed to be then you sized correctly. Enjoy!

Agreed.  If you look back at the picture I posted earlier today of my #8 unlined PTB you'll see that they're creased as all hell (including the tip of the shoe).  Just the nature of unlined.  They only get more comfortable as you wear them!
