    Ok, a little - perhaps very little- Alden Shell Cordovan humor: I have entitle this picture "Two Horse Shoes in the Snow."

    Thanks, guys.
    I hadn't heard of this last before. Is it limited to Japan?

    I believe it is more of an orthopedic line (e.g., TruBalance, TruFlare, TruSquare) but I do not think it is typical of their regular lines. Maybe Moulded Shoes here in NYC can still get them.

    Here's the answer -- apparently they did not clear this mailing list idea with Alden corporate, and when they found out about it they said no (like they seem to do with most marketing ideas), though the impression I got from Kathy was that it was the kind of no that might be reconsidered, but I wasn't optimistic. A couple years ago I talked to Kathy about putting on a customer event, sort of like a trunk show. She loved the idea but corporate would not allow it. Alden is very strange in many ways…..

    Absolutely awsome shoes. I had my hands on a pair of those at Alden DC when I was there last year. I was drooling then, and I'm drooling now!

    The Ravellos came in today:

    They look dark in indoor lighting, but appears to be more reddish under direct light.

    Those are some really pretty shoes! Must resist temptation. If they're a size 11D you can send them to me. I'll pay the shipping.
