Wow, more than retail price for used shoes? I can understand new in box but used?

They not a deal per se but they are slightly under retail. I believe these would be $730 or so new if you could find a pair...

We don't see this style here much. I like them.

The 4465H Cordovan Wingtip boot from TSM and the Alden Captoe Cordovan boots from J.Crew are both on the same barrie last. However I tried both in the 9.5D and the 4465 fits different and a lot better than the J.Crew boot. Curious how this is possible if they are on the same last? Does it have to do with one being a wingtip and the other being a captoe?

Very nice model in very nice condition. Would buy if they were my size.

First time I noticed Alden, it was on the LS website when they first came out. I recall the frustration and confusion that followed as to why I could not locate them.

This is a very interesting make up!

They are my size and I was very tempted when I saw them, but I've got a different pair of Aldens en route and not enough coin to cover both.

I don't have any way to prove this, but I think J crew barrie lasted shoes are more roomy.

Has anyone ever made Alden's all cordovan saddle shoe on anything but the Barrie last? As I think that special make-ups in Color 8 are still a possibility, do you think that it would work on the Aberdeen or Plaza? Or, should it stay on the Barrie?

Here's a plaza lasted saddle shoe:

Quick search did not lead me to an Aberdeen lasted Saddle.

Thanks mdubs! I didn't see one in all cordovan, but they do have them in a suede mix.

mdubs, you have the cordovan saddle shoes on the Barrie list, don't you? Or, am I thinking of MrDV? If you do own them, what do you think about them?

I have no saddles. I didn't get the saddle gene. DV has a whole slew of them. He did a week of them a few weeks back.
