Who's had problems with Alden crepe soles being overly gummy or sticky ? I just got Like New AWWs from Ebay and every bit of rug lint clings to them. They cost $100 less a $40 refund for not-as-described issues. The uppers are fabulous. I'm going to a cobbler for replacements. Also, these soles are blonde, not black. ?? I saw that Union Made has blonde sole AWWs.
