    I know they are not Alden but I would pay good money for the EG Shannon in cognac shell.

    Vass Valway in Cognac.

    GG Canterbury in a lighter cordovan shade.

    Alden, I would like to have some of these unicorns in my stable that fit me properly. Ravello wingtip boot would cause me to pay a premium.

    Just received my Shoe Mart seconds...................Color 8 hand sewn boot............The only odd thing I notice is the footbed of the right shoe seems a little raised in the toe area.....kind of like a ridge almost where my toes meet my foot. I'm guessing the cork would compress and conform to my foot shape after a few wears, but would appreciate any advice from someone who knows more than me. I've never encountered this before, and I definitely don't want to wear them until I'm sure this is not the actual defect in the shoe. Thanks!

    Maybe I'm crazy and in the minority here but I love the spotting within the shell on the right boot! Wish they were my size...

    Its gonna take more than a few wears. You can always try a bandaid in the toe area. Also, when they recraft them, you can tell the cobbler to put less cork so that it will depress further. However, that's gonna be a while.

    thanks cool arrow. It's more like it is just a bit lumpy......and only the right boot....no pressure from the sides or top of the shoe. I'll call Shoe Mart tomorrow...........I really want to keep these boots........

    Mine were Ravello... :) Just a darker shade... They are indeed done by Alden DC...

    That posting leverages both my pictures and my description! I guess plagiarism is the best form of flattery...
