    George Bass was the only Alden vendor in the city, to my knowledge, but they've dropped the brand after too many unsatisfactory orders. That being said, when I was there last month, they still had a few models in stock.

    edit - Apparently a store named M. Goldberg carries Alden as well.

    nephew,
    that is the beauty of the exotic colors. the shoes rarely , if ever, match exactly. i agree with your conclusion that it is up to your own personal taste to buy or decline

    You should try the Vibram Five Fingers. I don't see myself buying another pair of athletic shoes again.

    40 years!!! Is there much of a difference in the quality of shells then compared to today, assuming they are all from Horween?

    I would hope not, but it goes to show the potential value that can be realized by spending more money up front. Heretofore I haven't had a pair of shoes that lasted more than three years.

    Congratulations Uncle Mac. Here's to another 20 years (or more) in your shell cordovan Aldens!
