    No, they have some boots without speed lacing,my jump boots on order from leathersoul have regular laces. Great boots there BTW, didn't I try to buy those from you a ways back? (12Ds right?)

    And srivats, nice shoes...again!

    Do all Alden boots have speedlacing? I hate it on mine. I salute Epaulet for their Alden collab without normal lacing. Here's my pair, suede brogues (Alden of Carmel commando soles replaced with double soles):

    Yeah, you did, I wound up keeping them (and now that I finally have some cool weather, I'm glad I did).

    Anyone reading this getting a custom boot order together - consider standard lacing!

    Just curious, is there any pictoral reference out there for all of the different lasts? I know Alden of Carmel has a sizing reference, but I'm more of a visual guy I suppose. I only have experience with the Trubalance and Barrie lasts, and am very curious about all the others when comparing side to side.

    Stupid question but is it okay to put shoe trees in the suede chukka? Just want to make sure it's not going to stretch them or anything.

    If you put an XL shoe tree in a size 8 chukka is may stretch but if you use the proper size you should be fine. I probably wouldn't bother using shoe trees for the unlined chukkas though.
