    How has the Natural Chromexel aged? There was a lot of posting a few months ago, but hardly anything lately.

    I had that issue with my pair of Roy boots and they actually got worse over time. Luckily the dudes at Context were nice enough to replace my pair.

    how so, what happened?

    Nothing much to report yet, really. Don't worry I'll post pics when it starts rockin a patina.

    I noticed that the stitching would get looser and looser after every subsequent wear. I don't know if it's due to my foot and/or gait, but it got to the point that the stitching which attaches the flap to the vamp would stretch a good 1-1.5cm

    Here's a picture that I had taken of it after about 2 months of light wear.

    Here is my Alden collection
    Attachment 59990
    Looking for a good everyday lace shoe in their Chromexcel in a 7E. Having trouble location any. I would love to get the Indy shoe in natural or brown Chromexcel

    Really nice collection. Have you ever considered shoe trees? With such a lovely array it would be a shame to allow them to lose their shape and appeal.

    I do use trees for 4 of the pair but took them off for the pictures. Indy, Chukka and the brown and cordovan loafer do not get trees.
