    Rishi....I say go boots. I didn't think I was a boot wearer either, but Alden boots are like no other. Find a good fit and you will love any of them from Alden. Dress up, dress down...they just work.

    Hi Alden fans

    I've been lurking for the past couple weeks and have enjoyed reading all the informative posts and loving all the spectacular shoe pics. I'm learning a lot and unfortunately (for my bank balance at least) developing quite the wish list of Alden's to acquire.

    Anyway, I made the plunge and got my first pair of Alden shoes, the classic 975. Gotta start with the king, right?

    Not sure what my next pair is going to be, but I'm sure searching them out is going to be part of the fun. The dark brown NST model 925 was the shoe that caught my eye and led to my discovery of Alden shoes, so it is definitely a contender. But I am loving these longwings too.

    Outstanding acquisition sir. For your next pair I'd say get some boots, but don't be swayed by my opinion. Wipe your new 975's with a damp cloth, buff the heck out of them, and be prepared to hear people say "nice shoes" wherever you go. Wear them in the best of health.
