Do you happen to have a bigger picture? They look odd, but my vision isn't that great!

Haha sorry - I actually fixed it slightly prior to you commenting.

Looks like they were put in the washing machine & dryer. Maybe some time in a microwave too.

Looks like they spent some time in a washing machine or someone got caught in the rain (torrential downpour) and then allowed them to dry au natural, that and they have never met a shoe tree.

Still looking around for a few pairs of shoes. I always seem to just miss them...

 

Cigar or ravello Indys in 9d

 

cigar, ravello or whiskey PTB's or chukkas in 9e or 9.5d. Used is just fine. Something about beggars...

 

; )

 

Anyone seen a pair or wants to move one along?

Thanks. Yeah, bad timing posting a question around those cool #2's! smile.gif

Anyway, I pulled the trigger yesterday and sent a check to Adam for the AF124 (alpine LWB on commando) and AF120 (brown cxl PT boot on commando). I thought I was done buying Aldens for a while, but I think that now puts me at 5 pre-orders that I'm waiting for. (wallet says ouch)

Let me know if you find any 9D shell chukkas!

 

Oh and call Alden SF, I think they have a 9.5D Cigar chukka ;)

If you're having to wait for the alpine LWB, why don't you just order it from Alden San Fran? Alden has had this as a stock shoe for quite some time...

So I got home today after wearing my chukka's most of the day. On of my dogs greets me and then does a stretch at my feet and catches my shoe with his claw 😡
I was not impressed. He left a small gouge in it.
Gave them a wipe down, brushing, a boneing and then a buffing. I think it turned out okay. Looks better than it did.
There is however a nice slice in the hide 😔
Guess it will add to the character of the boots over time.

i saw a pair of shoes that sold on ebay a while back and can't figure out where they're from...

 

http://www.ebay.com/itm/Alden-leather-shoes-black-suede-NEW-mens-size-9D-/161209256365?pt=US_Men_s_Shoes&hash=item2588d209ad&nma=true&si=C5gdoWcQeSPLuCYPtJIvDsBcCUw%253D&orig_cvip=true&rt=nc&_trksid=p2047675.l2557

 

plain toe, black suede blucher on a commando sole

 

anyone know?  it says bootmaker on the inside but no other info is provided.  i'm thinking it might actually be a navy shoe that was mislabeled...

The 'Bootmaker Edition' stamping is often used by The Shoe Mart
