    Has anyone hiked in the commando sole or plantation sole? I'm going on a long trip, but will be packing light. The Barrie and Truebalance last fits me better than anything from Danner, so I was just thinking of saying screw it and only brining my Alden boots.

    Congratulations on your purchase and welcome to the Alden community! Those are a lovely boot design indeed! As per your question on the creases. The shoes are going to naturally crease as you wear them. I do not think that is anything that merits any concern. Enjoy them in the best of health!

    Thank you both for the quick advice and for putting my mind at ease! Time to start the break-in process...

    Seems like they’re fine to me. I just went through a long ordeal of buying 1 and then 1/2 size too small and it was an enormous waste of time and money. I also thought I’d go wider, but realized that was foolish for my foot, since I don’t have a wide foot.
