    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    I grew up in San Diego and visit my parents there from time to time. Last time, I wore my Truman Boofs...but with all the SD/Alden talk, perhaps next time I will wear some of my Aldens...enjoying my tan alpine-grained modified captoe boots...but I feel my Barrie-last #8 chukkas might be more appropriate in SoCal.

    Unless my Internet skills are really poor, it looks like Jos Bank hasn't had any shoe trees for a while. I need to pick up two or three pairs, who else has decent deals on shoe trees?

    Ha I wish it was for you too :) I'm going to San Francisco in July so you KNOW I'm going to be shopping for some Aldens.

    Still trying to build my #aldenarmy. May add some Cap Toe Black Cordovans for suits since I will have to go to some all-black military functions for my family. I will probably replace my Rancourt Loafers (obviously not shown here) with some Aldens. Or I could do good with some dress boots...

    Argh, yes I feel the wide foot pain. I also found Plaza in extra wide to have a bit of that Aldo look (I tried some EE width).

    Do they do Grant in EE+ width? I'd love some Grant captoe boots.

    I love my Modified shoes, but they only do EE+ width Modified boots on special order, and those are almost never available. :-(

    Inboxed the AoM Whiskey shell tankers. I like the color which is slightly darker than the whiskey from a few years ago. It's very vibrant and Carmel like which should age well. I like the pull tab on the back of the boot too.

    Massdrop.com has a great deal on Woodlore shoe trees right now. Two pair for 34.99 plus S+H. works out to about 20 dollars per pair. I joined this drop last time they had it. the trees are great. Best trees available at that price point IMO. you jut have to register for the site. its free and they have some very cool drops.

    PS: there is only two days left on the drop, so act fast.

    I'm looking for opinions on whether the ill fit of the side of my shoes would be considered typical. The inner side of the left shoe pouches out as if there is too much leather and nowhere to put it. It is actually hollow and it can be pressed in about 1/2 inch. The entire pouch is circled in red and the maximum distortion is on the arrow. The right shoes has a much less noticable version of the issue, but the left shoe does not seem normal to me. Your thoughts?

    This is not normal and is becoming a recurring issue with Alden. I had a pair of boots with the same flaw and somebody just posted a pair of 990s or 9901s with a ripple/bubble. Unfortunately I don't know if you can return them because the vamp is creased/worn. Where did you buy them? Contact the vendor and see what can be done...
