    @venividivicibj Mike and I were actually just tossing around some new Alden ideas while at the Individualized factory. We could absolutely anniversary this style, with some updates, if people were into it. Let's pool some thoughts on what details everyone would like to see on the Tyrol 2.0.

    Aside from that, we're planning on bringing back the navy chromexcel tanker boot, for sure:

    We're also thinking about running another Alt Wien boot. I was thinking of an Innsbruck variety (brown chromexcel, brass eyes, commando sole), but we're open to other suggestions. An example of the style below (not the leather/ details):

    Please keep in mind that for this batch of Alden make-ups we're going to focus on leathers other than shell cordovan (for delivery purposes). Aside from that parameter, all other suggestions are welcome!

    I haven't ordered the latest Saddle or Mocha tennis trainers but here's one for the previous round of high tennis trainers --- this is for Team Sienna Brown. Wearing them today. I want to see what comes down the road in the high trainers for CC.

    Question for the tennis trainer owners - anybody else have insoles that stop about 1/4" before the end of the shoe inside? Mine both have gaps at the front like the insole is a little short and on the left one it's a bit narrow so my big toe hangs off the edge in one spot. Love them, but was on my feet for 5 hours in them today and was definitely noticing some discomfort from that.

    The insoles on mine fit perfectly and the shoes are, in general, extremely comfortable. The only trouble I have is limiting the frequency with which I wear them.

    Are you sure it's not the insoles sliding back and up the heel? This happened on my quoddy bluchers and I ended up glueing the insoles down.

    Yeah, it isn't that. I've had that with Quoddys before too. These aren't sliding back, they're gluded in place and the heel is well positioned.


    Thanks for the feedback @Swangerman. Other than the insole issue mine are really comfy too and I could see myself wearing them a lot.

    My experience is 4-5 days. But, frequently 2 of those days are label created, awaiting pickup.

    @EP Dylan Maybe put it on the grant/aberdeen last to make it a bit more refined? Or make it with an antique welt rather than natural? Id buy it as is, or with the changes, was such a good shoe

    I've searched the thread and Google without success;
    I see there's no Rudy pants in stock only through the made to order option. But is there ever any stock (that can be returned) so I can figure out my sizing?

    Alternatively are there any dimensions for 38/39/40 sizes?

    Also any footwear in 14 or 15?

    It sounds like you have an insole cut for 1/2 size smaller. Try replacing the insoles with an aftermarket option. There are a number of high quality, low $$ options out there.

    Hey guys!

    My apologies for being AWOL on the site for a bit. I'm headed out to Europe for the week, so I won't be able to check in that frequently. Couple things going down:

    1) @EP Dylan is going to be holding down the thread for questions while I'm gone, so feel free to address things to him. He's also wrangling some fresh new Alden GTMO styles for the month. I love the idea of a Grant-last Tyrol blucher with an antique welt! It would keep the vibe of the original but make it a bit sleeker and more subdued. Perfect IMO.

    2) Preorders for the Sport Trainer in Oxblood Horse and Alabaster Calf close tomorrow. We've got some slots left on the Oxblood horse - and it's going to be rad as hell!

    3) Individualized EFF closes tomorrow as well. I know that it stinks to think about a flannel right now, but trust me: one of those flannels with a New Bond collar will be hands-down the dopest flannel that you've ever worn. IS makes a wonderful shirt, and that fabric is ace.

    4) We've nearly finished allotting the shell cordovan for our preorder customers. I'm going to figure out how much is remaining and then put that balance online for general preorders. It's a really special product, and arguably the coolest footwear that we've ever made :). Here's some shots of the Teak Shell Cordovan tennis trainers with about six weeks of wear on them:
