    Up for sale is a pair of used Alden for Brook Brothers Black Fleece black calf pebblegrain longwing blucher, in size 8D. I believe this is on Grant last. Fits TTS.

    It was worn among my other Alden LWB shoes. The upper shows signs of wear/minor scratch due to normal wearing. It is well cared for with reno every once a couple month before being retired. The condition in my opinion is very good with natural shine.

    Please note:
    - The inside heel on the right foot is worn as seen from the photo. The surface is rubbed down, so it became "suede-ish". I believe it can be patched over at any skillful cobbler.
    - Original double leather sole was replaced with Viabram. Not my best decision in life… My old cobbler did poor job at the stitching between the sole and welt ( stitches are not consistent. Some are longer, some shorter). I wasn't happy, so stopped wearing after a couple tries. It is more an aesthetic thing than construction problem.

    Price is lowered to reflect these imperfection. Nonetheless, it is still an Alden made with great qualities. I believe this is best for someone who doesn't mind the Viabram sole, or who wouldn't mind to get it resoled to leather sole again.

    Will come with Thom Browne shoe bags, but no box. Price is $250 with CONUS shipping. Paypal only. PM with any questions or additional photos. This is the first time I am selling on the forum, but you can find my ID on eBay with 100% positive selling feedback. Thank you.
