That is a great first post and some beautiful #8 Indy boots. Well done. Enjoy them well and keep them coming!

I just acquired a pair of Alden 405's just over a month ago and I'm pretty sure that the stiff heel strike has caused my back and hip to have some soreness problems. Anyone have any experience with that and using insoles (Dr. Scholls, etc) in them? I'm staying off of them for a bit to let my back heal up because it's pretty tender right now.

Side note - thanks to those who recommended AshlandLeather. My Color 4 Johnny The Fox came in yesterday - very satisfied!

Not Basically, one of the owners of Ashland is the operations manager at Horween...

Was having a discussion today on this topic with another sf member. Interested to hear others' opinions:

Do you find that the nst creases more and/or worse than other models?

Boots yes, shoe no

There's been a lot of jockeying for position lately with a surge in rare shell makeup. Is it me or has Leather Soul not mentioned anything? There is actually a pretty large amount of Alden retailers running silent. I can't help but believe their shot will happen pretty soon!

See Ya,
Steve

My guess is they're running silent in order to avoid the deluge of unnecessary inquiries. It is likely said retailers are rewarding loyal customers with rare shell makeups. If the recent runs are limited in number, advertising too broadly will likely create a headache for them. But, it is also possible these retailers have no rare shell goods to hawk.

Yeah, I think it is more the later, but I think that many would try and give thier VIPs first dibs. I have heard some retailers are still being told that exotic shells are still not available, but they may not be completely up on the happenings of the last two weeks.
