    Straight tips - color 8 and black cordovan - were my first Alden bought more than 20 years ago. They both have been resoled twice and reheeled many times and fit and look fantastic. they are my first choice for business wear.

    A true workhorse dress shoe. I too have them both.

    And I will say it again, some of Alden's best models are its stock models in color 8 and black. :nodding:

    My guess is lots of shoes in rotation.

    Standard rotation? Can't see myself resoling anything for at least 7-8 years at current wear

    For many years had six pair of dress ahoes amd would wear each less than one day pwr woek week. Theae were hard wotking yeara and many of these days the shoes would see only carpet because I bicycled to and from work and the only hard use was walking a few blocks to work obligations and business events.

    In addition, these are great shies. The other four shoes were two more pair of Aldens, and the other two were call skin church shirtwings and AE medallion tip monks. The AE and ahoetwings are long gone. All four Alden Corsovan are still on the scene. the some Church shoetwimgs and AE medallion captor monk straps.
