    They have dark edge trim. I'm sure because I have a pair of their Ravello LWB. For that matter, their Ravello PTBs also have dark trim.

    need some help alden bro's..

    my father mentioned recently that his daily pair of shoes aren't too comfortable. they're some off brand, cheap black "office acceptable" laceups.. he's always laughing at my new alden pickups, but mentioned that "maybe I'd benefit from a pair"..

    does Alden offer anything where style might play second fiddle to comfort? I have access to alden DC so will likely bring him in for a fitting/purchase, just trying to gather some notes..

    thanks in advance!

    The Trubalance and Modified last are actually part of Alden's orthopedic line.

    I'm getting rid of the pair of #8 J Crew LWBs with the crepe sole I just received. I wanted the antique welt as shown on the website, but they came black. PM me if you want them at a discount to retail before I return them. Size 10.

    I prefer the tan (antique) trim myself. It blends with the shoe. If I ever wear out the sole, this will be my request to Alden.

    Ravello SWBs are boss! Is your straight tip on the Modified last? They look great. :)
