    False.

    They are hot, but nothing is too hot to spoil. LOL. Spoilers are your friend.

    thoughts between speed laces vs not (bookmaker edition) on Alden boots from those of you who own both. I plan on wearing the boots mainly with dress pants and not so much with jeans.

    Hate speedhooks...especially Aldens unless it is a chamois leather or something similar. I generally do not consider makeups with speedhooks unless super special build. If Alden went to 3 speedhooks instead of four i would re-consider

    I'm moving toward a preference for speed hooks. I find all eyelets to be a pain to get on and off and tough to tighten
    the laces from bottom to top. All eyelets do look better but don't seem to be as functional. I've never had the problem
    of the hooks snagging my pants.

    I have the same thing coming via the seconds list. Is it a single or double leather sole?

    First time out for my reverse chamois boots. So far I'm very pleased.
    I was on the preorder for the black calf grain boots on the grant last from Leffot but have since come
    to the realization that the grant last just doesn't work for my foot. Leffot was nice enough to transfer my
    deposit over to these greenwich boots. Very happy with their customer service.

    Looking great! Usually I'd spoil these, but Tifosi asked me not to. :nodding:

    Single waterlock. Mine are from the seconds list, as well. I believe that's how TSM clears out their sale-priced Aldens. Mine came in a regular green Alden box, not the traditional generic white box seconds come in.
