Brown CXL PCTs x TSM
Also picked up a pair from the seconds list....unfortunately, no socks to steal the show on my end
I don't believe I'll never understand Alden seconds; I've certainly happily purchased "firsts" that looked worse
I was hoping to resole commando soles instead of double leather. But Alden Restoration seems to be only willing to resole double leather soles with double leather soles.
Who can do a similar Alden commando sole?
My recommendation is that you find a good cobbler or boot repair shop to do the job. I have resoled five Alden Indy boots with Commando soles. Three in Tucson, Arizona, and two in Syracuse, New York. It was not hard to find cobblers that would do this kind of work. George
I should post more of my pics in the thread.. but I am too lazy..
Here is today's pair though..
Whiskey NST from TSM
Dang, those are amazing. Please tell me they aren't recent...
I am one of those weird ones who's not crazy about Indy boots nor NSTs but as the saying goes, your boots have changed my mind. Yes, those socks are amazing but I'd like to know what the leather is. That's not natural CXL, is it? Looks almost like a tan calf.
Just took a flight w/ my unworn whiskey LWBs, and the airline promptly lost my baggage. Murphy's law.
Your post conveys a level of tranquility that I would not have at this moment. Kudos to you sir.
Just catching up on the new 2016 thread.... Thanks @Mdubs! Phenomenal contributions by all! @Mdubs and @MrDV, SPEACHLESS!
Hope everyone is having a great start to 2016!
Those Indys look like the perfect pair of boots for Africa! If you don't mind me asking, what line of work are you in?
just scored some floor model whiskey shortwings from Alden DC
this more than makes up for missing out on a whiskey shoe from the irregular list
now I'm done buying shoes for 2016
I do not mind at all! I am an international lawyer supporting the United Nations and the US in training African troops for United Nations peacekeeping missions in Africa. I train them in areas such as international law, human rights, international humanitarian law (i.e., Geneva Conventions), and peacekeeping legal issues. My classroom is under a mango tree, no air conditioners, and usually no seats other than the African khaki ground. This is where great boots, such as Alden Indy boots, makes a big difference in comfort and suitability. George
I always take my more valuable shoes in my carry-on, or I wear them. I only check them if they're like, easily replaced (non-shell, basically).
Love these and a version on commando has been on my list for a while. Would have settled on the flex sole had a pair popped up on the seconds list. Congrats on the purchase!
