    Alden 403s after about 4 months of heavy wear. I applied a neutral polish and a quick buff and I'm surprised at how much these are holding together.

    J. Crew stopped with the heel stitching?

    J. Crew still does the heel stitching. I prefer the original. I purchased mine from Alden SF store, though I believe they shipped to me from Mass.

    I was just about to rave how these shoes held up after a solid two weeks of hardcore construction work. They were smothered in dirt and soot and I got several scratches on the toe and heel. I gave them a thorough cleaning and applied a neutral polish on them and they restore back to a pristine look. Amazing boot...getting some noticeable heal wear, but I'd say another 2 years before getting them refurbished.

    Is there a way to turn the regular Alden Indy CXLs into this color? I like the shiny look.
