    Same last but very different feel. Flex welt feels like a slipper--little support. Lined LHS more substantial. I take same size in both...

    Need some advice as I was brushing my new longwings I noticed I had stepped on a sharp deep rock. Pictures of the rock in and out of the heel attached. Is this something that needs immediate attention?

    Tried to capture the depth which is the concerning part. I would guess it went straight to the black rubber second layer of the heel, if that makes sense.

    Thanks, will do and wear tomorrow. I know they can take a lot of abuse, only the depth was of concern.

    Like the uncle says all the time. These are shoes and not Rembrandt collections.
    Soles and toplifts are meant to be worn and could easily be replaced. That's one big reason of buying good quality Goodyear welted shoes.
    Aldens are not just a fashion fad. They are REAL shoes.

    The TSM delivery says FedEx - Home delivery. I am not having this delivered to my house. It is going to a depot in Niagara Falls NY where I pick up a lot of my packages when they won't ship across the border.

    I am guessing FedEx home delivery will still deliver to this business, right?

    Amazing saddles, DV! These are my new obsession... Unfortunately, not available at the moment (at least don't think so)

    Worry about? Nope. It's the sole of your shoe, a wear item.

    Zippy that photo has reconfirmed my belief that I need a Cigar Wingtip boot in my life.
