    Very very nice, I'm so disappointed they didn't have my size.

    i had great success with calling customer service earlier today to make sure my addresses were correct in the system. although the website still shows my old, incorrect address under the corporate number, the discount is applied after entering payment information and the shipping/billing addresses on the final page are up-to-date.

    Thank you kindly, sir.


    They're a good one. Surprised you haven't snagged a pair yet ;)

    But seriously Namor, I bless your username every day I see these in my closet. Can't ever say thank you enough!

    regardless, what makes the loudest sound is usually the heel first striking the ground. the rear portion of the dovetail on AE shell offerings is pretty much the same rubber used for their calfskin toplifts. this rubber is significantly harder than Alden toplifts' rubber, and, as a result, my AEs are all much louder than my Aldens.

    i just realized this was the case. darn! the saving-to-cart trick might not work so well. here's to hoping that they will release more sizes by 3/13...

    PSA:

    Hate to bring up non-Alden items, but
    The Wolverine 744 Ltd.
    Horween Cordovan (Beautiful Color) almost a #4
    Currently listed in many sizes 30% of regular $750 price
    These are not seconds
    I think they are $530-$550

    I got the 721 last year and the shell was beautiful and since Allen Edmonds makes Wolverine's Shell Offerings, they are made beautifully. With the way that shell is being bought up by the Chinese ( as explained to me by Alden, you probably won't get a first quality boot at this price again)

    The ones I seen in a store did not look that good, Last years looked great, but when I had on a pair of Cigar captoes the comparison to the 744 wasn't even close to Alden's finish.
