    Google the Mac Method for caring for Aldens. This is all you need to know, with a small bottle of Saphir Renovateur as a bonus.

    Thanks for the advice, Bakes! Does anyone wear the unlined version in colder climates during the winter? I prefer the sole on the unlined version, but think the lined version might be a better option, especially with the Goodyear sole. I'd like these to last a very long time! I'm also concerned that the unlined version might not be too comfortable, or might wear sooner.

    Anyone actually have either of these boots or the tobacco PTB? I'm so indecisive!

    Thanks! Is there a difference in the care of cordovan vs. calf leather shoes? I notice that most Alden shoes are made of cordovan. The cleaning methods that I've googled (such as the Mac Method) and the waxes I've looked up only mention care for cordovan. Is there a difference for the care of calf leather shoes?

    Thanks

    One of my all time favorite Alden boots. Too bad they won't do the antique edge with black shell anymore!

    I think I need to add more variety shells/boots. Maybe some whiskey and NST.

    To those that have wanted an Alden penny loafer but can't fit into the Van last - call Alden NYC and order a grant lasted loafer in your TTS size. They have color 8 and black moc toe and color 8, black and cigar split toe. I picked up a black moc toe that is among my best fitting shoes.
