Mind you, this homework is for my MBA degree. I already have a B.S. and M.S. Back in high school and undergrad years, I was wearing Jordans and limited edition Nike's. Tom, you're killing me here. I was already in bed watching Wall Street. But can't sleep...so I turned on the computer to see you have the #4 available.

Popped in to Leathersoul this week whilst attending a conference in Hawaii. Wow, beautiful store. Really friendly salesmen too, showed off my captoe 8 on the plaza last purchased from them years ago and the chap was so taken aback he gave me a free tin of polish to keep them looking good. I tried on the new perforated captoes in 8, they are stunning. I know Tom has inquired in to purchasing my 8 captoes from me to use as a display model, and I was half-convinced to do it so I could get the perforated captoes they were so beautiful! Sadly (or gladly for my wallet), you were not around Tom, so I took the new boots off and made myself get out of there before it was too late! Fantastic shop though.

Leffot may be the finest shoe store I've ever set foot in. Period. And most every shoe they have is exquisite, but they may only have 10-15 Alden shoes at any given time.

Just my .02.

Thank you for your input - I am not a newbie to Alden, just looking for a place with a fair amount of stock that I can grab a pair or two more while in NYC. I will eventually make it to Leffot, but I've emailed with them and they do not have my size in the makeups I find interesting. Now I'm really intrigued about my visit to Alden NYC, as most comments here have been negative.

I went to the NYC Madison shop this past week to try on some longwings. I've been buying size 10D (barrie last), but think I'm really a 9.5E which is hard to find to just try on. They didn't have any shoes I particularly liked in 9.5E but I did like the fit. For the heck of it I walked up to Citishoes on Park Avenue which carries a lot of Aldens. They had just gotten in an order of whiskey longwings and had every size in various widths. I wasn't there to necessarily buy shoes, but the 9.5Es fit so well I had to get them. And by signing up for their mailing list they gave me $60 off (which didn't hurt).

Those look great. Wear them well.

Looks like the seller dropped the BIN price from $550 to $525 from yesterday. Pretty good price on a pretty rare shoe. I have no affiliation to the seller.
Whoever bought these at $475 got a steal!

Can anyone identify these Aldens?

^ My guess would be the #8 cap-toe boots for J.Crew...
