    I have a lot of high end shoes. I consider myself a bit of budding shoe-snob, but right now, I really like Alden. I am enjoying the 5 cordovan pairs I have collected recently. At some point I will fall in love with some else, I always do, but your comment is rather silly in a thread devoted to Alden. :)

    Seconded. I can appreciate the look that some other shoes have in the artful abstract. But many of them look ridiculous on my feet and for a typical body frame. Alden shoes are a good compromise of style, substance, and practicality. The Leather Soul makeups are especially wonderful.

    You can spend a lot more for shoes that are "higher end", but the quality/fit may not be worth that incremental price difference.

    Hey, Namor, where do you get Trickers in the US? And how do you think they stack up to Alden?

    Thanks
