    I wouldn't pay $775 for used Cigar PTBs, personally. They're made relatively often and if you get yourself on the lists at Alden SF and DC, you should end up with one within a year or two.

    Note that these have the Alden restoration heel pad and soles, which indicates that these have been recrafted by Alden. I assume they were heavily worn/used before that.

    I was serious, I just don't wear Derby's any more, since retirement. Have a whole closet full of AE and haven't even put my foot in a pair in the past 6 months. However, I agree that the price of these is a bit much for a recrafted shoe.

    +1 Leffot's pre-owned selection definitely has gems, but their pricing system leaves a lot to be desired. It seems to be fairly pre-determined based on a handful of criteria and leads to weirdly overpriced shoes like this pair.

    I really love the country calf leather on a couple pair of my boots, AOC had these on closeout and I have a thing for saddle shoes as well, so they are on the way. C37F9E3C-544B-400A-A532-E1C0CD405968.jpeg

    Thanks! Hope they are as comfortable as every other Alden I’ve bought. Think they will look good with lighter shade khakis in summer.

    Received my Shell tassels from B.B. the stitching on one heel is not tight, and protrudes. I am I being too picky? You can really tell in the shadow pic with light going through.
