    Did anybody preorder the Alden Indy Brown Chromexcel boots from North River Outfitters? Has anybody received them yet? Their site says that they have started shipping.

    Yes, I did - still waiting for them to ship. Ordered in mid-Jan.

    I notice that some of these new Alden collabs come with waxed laces. I'd like to get a pair for my standard Indys. Anyone know where I could get some? I've tried contacting Alden directly but they tell me they only have the regular cotton ones. I'm getting tired of having to replace my laces every couple months.

    not hard to wax them yourself, which is what i do, in between chopping wood, milking cows, and driving my tractor around my ranch.

    I've been having shoestring problems as well. Are there any good online sources of shoestrings?

    I e-mailed Alden customer service asking where I could buy replacements and they sent me 3 pair in the mail gratis, you may want to do the same..

    What about replacing the cotton laces with leather laces? My local shoe repair shop stocks leather laces. I'm going there on Saturday to check it out.

    This thread has had some ridiculously awesome shoes posted the last couple weeks. Gotta wonder is Alden production is way up, or if 90% of their shit winds up on here.

    Picked these up recently. Suede wingtips on Barrie. I tried one narrower than usual as well as sizing down 1/2 size and I like the fit, though I have to wear them with thin dress socks.
