    Hello Everyone:

    I am writing in the hopes that some of the more knowledgeable members of this forum can assist me...

    I am looking for a pair of Alden boots that were available at J Crew...my size in no longer available and they do not have any plans to restock this particular style...is anyone aware of a style that is similar ? I love the color and the simple toe ( cap toe would be fine as well!)

    If anyone has a pair of these in a size 8.5 (or even a 9), I would be willing to take them off your hands and pay you handsomely for parting with them...additionally, I would pay a premium for anyone that has them NIB in my size...

    Thanks in advance...here's a link and an image...

    Have you looked at the Leffot Conney boot? Also - there is an Alden thread in SW&D where you might also pose the question.

    Thanks very much! The leffot boot is a great alternative. I'll keep that in mind. I will be sure to post in the other section too. Thanks again.

    Thanks very much, that is very close. Do you think these could be worn as casually as the pair I am looking for?

    I think the Leathersole version is definitely more casual than the Cooney - you could wear with most everything except shorts. :D
