    Agreed -- these photos make the color 8 and the edge trim glow. Would love a pair of these but unless I'm soon able to wear boots during the workday it is easy to end up with more than I can ever wear. :happy:

    I laud your efforts but I hate pebble and I hate commando soles. If it was pure black shell or at least no pebble, and any more refined sole, I'd have been interested.

    If it was on a more refined sole it would defeat the intended purpose of that particular shoe...

    Pebble grain isn't for everyone. I've found it to be quite delightful and it goes well with brogue shoes. I think mr chorizo was looking for something more casual. These pair very well with denim. Well done, mr chorizo!
    If the standard long wing would have gotten the job done, I doubt he would have bothered with a custom order. I think we have to look at chorizo's intent in designing the shoes.

    I agree.

    The one on the left is pebble grain and I think it works real well.

    Best place to browse for Alden online?


    Want to take a look at their full range before I start visiting stores.

    Does any site represent the (almost) full range?

    And please don't tell me Alden.com. Their site is as terrible as their shoes are good.

    My post was more intended for OfficeLinbacke than chorizo - I think chorizo's shoes are great, I would consider ordering a pair just like it

    The shoe mart is close when it comes to standard shoes, but honestly, this thread is probably the best source of information when it comes to the "full range" of Alden shoes. Alden is a custom shoemaker that tailors its offerings to the tastes of independent retailers globally, so it is impossible to get the full range of available products on one website
