I was shocked when saw the prices on Alden as well when I was in Tokyo on December. Dudes there obviously read the internet...I'm sure they could pick some up from leather sole hawaii for a ton less (unless the collabs are the exact colors that they want). Even with shipping at $60 they'd come out far, far ahead Where is hummingbird hill located? Never stumbled onto it while walking around on any of my trips to tokyo I'm sure Japanese tourists make up a huge part of LSH's walk in clientele for that reason. $700 for Trickers Stow and $1100+ for alden cordovan chukkas & brogues is bit much for sure Hummingbird Hill is in Ebisu, it's a shop with a burger cafe connected to it, stocks Alden, Trickers etc. Just slightly south west of the Ebisu JR station. Here's a quick indoor snapshot of the burgundy Stow I got from Leathersoul, actual wearing pic in outdoor light will post tomorrow. Next to it is the Dry Bones "gillie" brogue boot in burgundy. you can see that the Trickers is more brownish with more "yellow" in the color makeup. Whereas the Dry Bones is more of a magenta burgundy with more "blue" in the color.
