    Alden sells a brown paste wax, but no need to apply paste wax for a while (unless the shoes were purchased used and need some TLC)

    Hello Forum,

    New here and have a question for you. I'm getting ready to buy a pair of Alden cordovan perforated cap toe bal. I've noticed that. The tongues on the ones I see for sale have a tongue with the top serrated. I'm not a fan of that and want to make sure the ones I order won't have that. Is there a name for that detail?

    I'm having them made special since I have very wide feet and no one stocks them normally (that I've found) so I'm hoping having plain topped tongues can be done without much trouble.

    Thank you in advance and I'll probably stick around for a while.

    Happy New Year,

    Dugan
