Not the first time I've seen that on Alden boots. Seems to be somewhat common actually. My brother just sent back a pair of Indy boots to get fixed for that reason.

Honestly, it's too bad that they have these issue but there are enough other things I like about Alden that I can deal with the occasional problem. Nobody else makes boots that are quite this exact style and I really like them.

I can't figure out what is wrong with JDs first pic, how could you spot something like that.

I had similar issue with my AF64. The stitching came loose (at the exact same spot) and I haven't really done anything to fix it. Fortunately it hasn't gotten worse yet.

When walking, the boot creases, and it lifts up. At some point I was looking down when walking and noticed. It was more than just a couple stitches pulled, so it wasn't hard to spot. Happy I did, because it was stopped before it progressed. To above, they are actually ultimate vintage indys, and aside from this issue, they're exactly what I wanted. Teger: yeah I have a guy. I seriously doubt it will come loose again.

Thanks! can't decide between Vintage and Kudu. I'm hoping someone can post a "real world" picture of the Kudu's. I want to see them in lighting other than what's posted on LeatherSoul

I don't own any Aldens, so I'm trying to figure out sizing. I tried on some Red Wing 6 " classics for size today in a 10.5 (figuring people here know how red wing and alden compare size-wise) and they seemed to fit. what would be the comparable indy size?
post #940 of 94373
^^^ I wear the same size in Red Wing Gentleman Traveller as the Indy.
post #941 of 94373
I wear a 9 in Red Wings and had to get an 8.5 in the Indy. Fit was perfect.

It all depends on the Alden last as to your sizing. For instance, I have the 986 Shell Pennys and I take a 9 in those but, as I mentioned, take an 8.5 in Indy's.

tried on some RW Iron Rangers today and 10.5 was good..think i'll go 10.5 in the indys (i'm usually an 11)
post #943 of 94373
For reasons unclear to me (although alcohol may have been involved), I felt the need to purchase two pairs of very similar shoes from Leather Soul.
I think the ones on the right are the AAAC special on the Aberdeen last.
The ones one the left are on the Barrie.

Does anyone have fit pics of that Context Roy Boot?

Aberdeen looks fantasmic.
