    I didn't expect to like the shoes when I saw the thread, but they're not bad for a white shoe.

    Nice shoes, amigo. These are right up my alley. But the link you provided shows them advertised for $149-$175. I'll tell you right now, Metro Dade will not spring for that much.

    is the bold font with the large size really necessary?

    Are those pairs really by Alden ? Because i bought Turin for a price of 149 $ last month but i don't know who is the manufacturer.

    Ahem, not made by Alden, per se, in Middleborough but by acquired subsidiary Highland Shoe (formerly Ansewn) www.highlandshoe.com previously in Bangor, now in Brewer.

    Alden makes Goodyear welted footwear.

    Highland makes hand-sewn vamp lake, sewn-sole moccasins and belts.

    Apples and pomegranates.

    (Ansewn previously made similar styles for PRL at less than half current retail prices, earlier in the '00s.)

    But Highland makes Alden's cape cod line, right?

    I think these might run a bit smaller than Cape Cods.

    I made a mistake a few years ago buying Alden Cape Cods thinking they were Alden.

    They are not near the quality. I finally threw them out.
