    sorry for the threadjack gentlemen, but I rarely venture out of this thread..

    Awhile back, I came across a pair of camouflage shoe bags.. now I can't find them in my bookmarks. my OCD keeps me trying to differentiate my various manufacturers, and my singular pair of wolverines I just grabbed would work best for these me thinks.

    anyone got a line of a pair? I'm almost confident they were USA made, so even better.

    thanks in advance brethren!

    How often can I wear my Alden Indy (Natural CXL) boots and expect them to last? If I wore them everyday--minus weekends--and tried my best to maintain them, how long do you think they would last? I won't be dragging them through the mud too often. They'll definitely be exposed to occasional rain (before making it inside) and puddles.

    Too many unknown variables to give you an answer. How long will you wear them each day? Office job vs postal delivery? Your general gate some wear shoes down much more quickly, your climate snow,salt, rain , bourbon st. (I swear that sledge can wear through the toughest jr sole).

    At my age, i am beginning to feel like every purchase of Aldens is purchasing an heirloom.

    But i agree with Tifosi, Alden needs to get busy with producing some exotics.

    I don't want my headstone to read:

    All he ever wanted was world peace
    (and a pair of Ravello chukkas).

    Come on, man!

    I don't have much bad to say about having the 'Alden flu' but this is part of the process that I'm having a hard time wrapping my head around. Just out of curiosity, how much of a deposit were you required to provide and has LS offered to provide a refund?
