    Great looking shoe my friend. So, is this considered an Alt Wein? Is it the same shoe that Epaulet recently released (which had an antique edge)?:slayer:

    gosheik: I'm also interested in hearing if you think having a chukka and a cap toe boot in the same color cordovan has felt a bit redundant/too similar, and perhaps would avoid it if you could do it all over again.

    no

    Classy looking shoes RTP. How do you like the fit of your BB Alden's?

    Thank you, Sir. I truly love this pair of shoes. And - that was actually a bee of some sort. Look at the large version of the photo. He (she?) and a friend kept landing on my shoes, just sitting there. Could it be the attraction of Aldens?:nodding: Or possibly Saphir Renovateur?:nodding:

    Did the restoration involve any work on the interior ... e.g., replacement of the full-length leather insole or perhaps just the logo'd heel pad? I'm also considering the purchase of pre-owned Aldens for restoration, but I don't want to be stuck with the original insole that may will have been soiled and imprinted by the previous owner.

    The restoration will come with a new heel pad reading "Alden Restoration." The original insole will remain as is - imprint and all. I have had full restorations/recrafts done at Alden, AE, and BNelson, and none of them come with a new insole.

    You are correct. Just the heel pad is replaced

    Another one that doesn't see a lot of love around here but a beauty nonetheless. With charcoal gray, those shoes are rockin'. Nicely done, RTP.
