    I for one am happy to have choices. There are plenty of places to get #8 LWBs on leather soles.

    ^ Alden should rename it the "crap" sole in honor of all the shit that gets stuck to the bottom of your shoe at the end of each day. It's like stepping on gum with your entire foot, then walking around the block...

    I have no objection to choices. Choices are good.

    Agreed. It's not like JCrew is monopolizing Alden's color 8 cordovan.

    Perhaps I'd understand if they were buying up all of Alden's whiskey, ravello, and color 4 and putting them all on crepe soles.

    ^ The Leydon Last: the crepe sole of lasts. I'm pretty sure I couldn't even fit into a bespoke Leydon last (I realize that defies logic)
