I bought these specially made pair from Alden of Carmel. They have these specially made with the Commando ie rubber lugged sole. In addition, I had a cobbler refinish the edging so they are "antiqued". So instead of painted black, they are naturally finished with the dark brown leather of the sole showing on the side. This gives the shoe a slightly more casual appearance. Dress them up in a suit or dress them down in jeans, these shoes are ready for anything. They were $720 from Alden of Carmel + another $50 from my cobbler.
I have probably worn them maybe 5-8 times.... In the end, I have been digging my various Alden boots instead. Rather than sit in my closet, figured someone else might dig these totally unique and custom Aldens! Included are the original box, the plastic bags, the felt bags etc. Basically everything that would be there if you bought them from the store!
