    So ethical conundrum...
    Do you "out" an Alden retailer on here if you know they are offering ~15% off most of their Alden shell as well as non-shell?
    We all know none is supposed to offer "sales".
    This is theoretically in store only.

    There were a bunch of posts made about 24hrs ago about other retailers that sell Color 8 Cap Toe Boots. You might want to check them out.

    Short answer, No. I am into letting markets decide the prices, and if a retailer can survive in a smaller area with some local discounting then good for them. As is there are so few retailers for Alden.

    Ha! Same here. It's such a great boot for going: matches well with dark chinos or denim, sturdy on the feet, and clean up nicely after a sloppy night in the rain

    Thanks! Snuff suede wingtip on Barrie with a commando sole. I think they will get quite a bit of use. I am a big fan of a Alden suede makeups

    Why in the world would you want to do that. Plus the store that is doing it are great guys and it's in conjunction with an Alden trunk show so I am sure they have permission.

    Nice score, rydenfan. I have the snuff chukkas with the flex soles and I absolutely love the rich brown color of the suede but the fit, not so much. So they don't get much wear. Your pics indicate to me that I should get some type of boot in snuff suede.

    They are beyond comfortable!! I also have the PTB in snuff and find it to be extremely versatile. Might be a good alternative if you dump your Chukkas

    You guys ever run into an issue where one sole is 1/4 wider than the other?
