    yeah that seems like a pretty low number to me. I know Crockett and Jones won't do more than two resoles, but I figured boots like these could handle quite a bit more than that.

    Many Alden distributors do not ship overseas (I think it is a contract with Alden). Best way is to probably find someone you know on this side of the pond to proxy them for you.

    I stopped by Moulded last week to check these out. They are great and I really like the look except I prefer the tip of the wing to be slightly more elongated like on the LWB. Overall it's a great looking shoe and seriously considered picking them up...

    I see that. The LWB is such a classic style. I think that the shorter tip works on shortwings, though.

    True. It was also a way for me to rationalize not walking out with a pair. :)

    Okay, So I have been in talks with Alden DC about their next fall run of shoes and through that topic we got onto the subject of next summer. They told me that Kathy might be open to doing a MTO for that run but obviously there would need to be enough people to commit to purchase in order to coerce both the retailer (Alden DC) and Alden itself. I can tally myself as wanting a MTO boot that can be built by the community and a friend of mine whom also has caught the Alden bug is in on the idea of a preorder. So that makes 2. There would need to be about a dozen people on board with a single design ie. last, color, material (shell most likely), etc. I am going to start another thread dedicated to this Alden DC MTO as the current MTO thread is fairly focused on the current Epaulet makeups that have been in the works. If you are interested feel free to PM me or drop in at the dedicated thread and provide your personal input there.

    Here is the link to said thread, and thanks.
