They are amazing. I'm sure you've mentioned this before, where are these from? Last?

The first Aldens on the moon?

^ Thanks guys, appreciate the compliments.

They are from Context and are on the Barrie. Went with a size 12.5D (same as my Barrie shoes) and they fit like a dream.

Context? How long ago did you purchase them? I only see the Roy boots (in 4 different leathers) on their site.

 

Nice pickup!

Those Tankers look great. Looks more like a Plaza last than Barrie

Very nice, and welcome to the forum - CXL and crepe look like quite the comfortable make up...

Looking for input:  If you could own only one pair of Alden boots--which would they be? 

post #82363 of 93963

This is my first post in this thread, I am overwhelmed by the amount of knowledge in this thread, astounding. This fall I purchased a pair of the J Crew Indy boots, over time I have noticed what, for lack of a better term, appears to be some crackling. I presume this could only happen with dry leather which Horween should not be dry. So I had J Crew send me a second pair which arrived today, they appear to have a similar "issue." Am I crazy, is this a defect or will it go away? I have treated with Venetian Shoe Cream and Allen Edmonds Cleaner/Conditioner. 

Crackling toward top left hand corner

 

This is more what I expected it to look like, I guess. 

 

 

Thanks for taking your time, I appreciate this thread and your help!

Intentionally unspoilered.  I am jealous as hell.  Live long and enjoy!
