    Thanks for the info. I rarely see these orthopedic Alden models. I wish you comfort and good health wearing them :)

    I will say that I have a few old pairs of Hyde bowling shoes from their defunct "Athletics" street line that are insanely comfortable and look very much like these Alden shoes. I usually wear them with jeans.

    Those are a heck of a lot better looking in suede than leather. Like a different shoe.

    Wasn't delivery scheduled for July? That's what they told me for both boots, although wingtips showed up early. I really wish I preordered the captoe as well, #4 is so rich

    I want to see a #4 LWB. I'd jump all over that. Has it ever been done?

    Great shoes. The bar lacing add's a lot to the look. Everything looks really clean?

    There are conflicting stories out there about the #4 cap toe boot....

    Back in march when I put my name down, I remember being told that the Captoe boots were 4-5 weeks away and the #4 wingtip boot was 4-5 months away.

    So....the #4 wingtip boot arrived in May....so I called about the #4 captoe when the #4 wingtip came in. I was told that Alden told shoemart that the captoe boot was in production and would be ready soon.

    I called again this week and was told the order was just sent to Alden on May 26th, so figure 8-12 months from there.

    I honestly dont know what or who to believe....I need to call back and speak to Ed.

    They could both be right if there is a second order?

    Does anyone else think that a navy suede Indy with red brick sole would look killer?

    Very nice. I recently acquired the Cigar Shell NSTs on the Barrie Last from Shoemart. I have worn them but once; however, they are scheduled for a second voyage tomorrow.

    Don't know if a LWB in Color 4 has been done, but I was lucky enough to stumble upon a NOS Vintage Hanover Color 4 ptb a few months back. It's a beautiful shoe and fits nicely in the color spectrum between my ravello ptb's and cigar chukkas. I inquired of the Color 4 wingtip boot earlier this week when phoning Shoemart - I was told an order was placed 5/26/12 and they have no idea when, if ever, another order will be placed?
