    ^The kudu that was in the other pic is the Ultimate Indy in Kudu from LS. The pic you posted is the standard Indy from Alden in Kudu.

    If they made these in navy suede it will be copped w/o hesitation, especially since it's on a barri last.

    +1, partly because I have BB Peal made by AS plaintoe wingtip balmoral oxfords with the same or similar suede color. This is so tempting nevertheless.

    What are peoples opinions about the Allen Edmond Cascade boots.
    http://www.allenedmonds.com/aeonline...ategory=120552

    They are a damn sight cheaper, and Allen Edmond quality is generally considered on par with Alden correct?


    Those are just butt ugly. I actually like AE for some shoes but thats one of their ugliest designs.

    You can wait til their new boots come out later this year, but I think they'll be priced similarly to Alden.

    Ha well I dont know about all that. I like the Aldens better, these AE look like fancy hiking boots to me. I just think that Aldens are over priced to a decent degree (though excellent looking), so I am looking at other options.

    With all due respect and irrespective of style/model (may be, relatively and to a certain extent, except shell cordovan shoes and vintage AE shoes), I believe the consensus here would be that AE is NOT on par with Alden.

    Guys, let's not start another AE vs Alden debate. It's fricking annoying. This is the official Alden thread for pete's sake.

    AEs are good shoes. [​IMG]

    Is it just the lighting or is the Summer Oxford tan suede different from the other two?

    i called blackbird and they said the picture was the color, they said its a dark wheat. i bought them so i will post pics when they come in.

    How does the two lasts differ?
    I checked here but they did not list the grant last for comparison.
