    The shoes that were returned to Alden of Carmel were pristine. No crease, no nothing,

    I would agree with you two if what he wanted was a refund he just wants a different size and if does that now he has to pay by money order .

    Please hold the 8.5.

    Thank you.




    it was clear that they wouldn't be here in time. I just wanted an exchange period. Not an exchange in a timely fashion.

    When you start looking at high-end shoes, you will realize that Aldens are a bargain compared to many. Example - some John Lobb (not even shell cordovan) shoes go for $1,500.

    I always get confused about these "family photos" when people have the money to afford all the shoes pictured, but not $12 shoe-trees for every pair.

    Got these Alden 403s from The Shoe Mart about 3-4 weeks ago and the heel is half broken off when a door slammed into the back of the heel. I believe I can send them back to the Shoe Mart for free repair or replacement, but I don't mind paying some cash if I can just take it to a local cobbler to fix and not have these out of the rotation for 2-4 weeks. Are Alden heels specialized in any way where it would be best to send back to the Shoe Mart or any local cobbler can fix? Any idea how much I might be charged at a local cobbler? Thanks!

    Forgive me, but I fail to understand what you're trying to say.

    I have dealt with Adam from AoC before. He was one of the least accommodating retailers I have dealt with. I chose to spend my money elsewhere. YMMV.

    Thats the most flawed logic ever.
