Thanks for the information. Great looking pair of shoes. From the photo you provided my guess is that this pair has a double leather sole. Is that correct ?
I designed that shoe in collaboration with Adam at Alden of Carmel. It's my favorite Alden pattern.
My man knows everything there is to know about the shrimping business.It was originally a 12 pair run. 2 pairs were FD'd and ended up at TheShoeMart, and several (as many as 4) pairs were apparently not made due to insufficient leather or catastrophic defects. I have tracked down 8 pairs that were made (including the 2 which were FD'd), but I suspect there are 2 more pairs which I have not been able to find.
If my research is correct, then there should be a second 8D pair out there somewhere. My pair is staying with me, though.
JDotZ knows. Thanks for your insight.Brick and Mortar ran those.The run was very small. Yenni told me there were only 8 pair total. There are some other Indy’s made on double leather though, I can think of color 8, whiskey and Regina grain pairs I’ve seen in the past.
Welcome, glad you came over from the "Dark Side". Actually, AE has some really good footwear, Alden is just betterFirst-time poster in the Alden thread here. A couple of months ago, I tried on some Color 8 Indy Boots at The Shoe Mart in CT. The fit ruined all of my Allen Edmonds for me and led me to defect to you guys. The Truebalance last is so perfect for me, with the Barrie Last coming in a really close second. I currently own Color 8 Indys, Chukkas, Plain Toe Boots, and Punch Cap Toe Boots. The Grant last on the Punch Cap Toes doesn't fit me as well as the Barrie, so I'm thinking about selling them in the marketplace, but I'm really happy with Alden's quality, appearance, and fit!
