    Petyot,

    You have no idea how green with envy you've made me. What a spectacular find! Now, because of you, I have to make a trip tomorrow to my local Value Village in a futile attempt in finding something like that.


    Sorry [​IMG]


    PS : Keep in mind that I visit Value Village on a regular basis since 3 or 4 years and those Alden ranks among my very best find.

    here are the chukkas in whiskey...

    these are the only "boot" with a plain-toe that I've seen in whiskey. they also have a blucher shoe in whiskey sometimes available. call the San Francisco store to see if they have them in your size.

    Thanks for the photo Jasonfoote! Whiskey sure looks good...
    I may have to take a trip back to SF Alden.

    Picked up my suede chukka's yesterday from Sherman Brothers. It feels so weird to wear something this light after wearing my Indy's for a couple months now.

    Do all Alden boots have speedlacing? I hate it on mine. I salute Epaulet for their Alden collab without normal lacing. Here's my pair, suede brogues (Alden of Carmel commando soles replaced with double soles): [​IMG]

    No, they have some boots without speed lacing,my jump boots on order from leathersoul have regular laces. Great boots there BTW, didn't I try to buy those from you a ways back? (12Ds right?)

    And srivats, nice shoes...again!

    Yeah, you did, I wound up keeping them (and now that I finally have some cool weather, I'm glad I did).

    Anyone reading this getting a custom boot order together - consider standard lacing!

    Just curious, is there any pictoral reference out there for all of the different lasts? I know Alden of Carmel has a sizing reference, but I'm more of a visual guy I suppose. I only have experience with the Trubalance and Barrie lasts, and am very curious about all the others when comparing side to side.

    Stupid question but is it okay to put shoe trees in the suede chukka? Just want to make sure it's not going to stretch them or anything.

    If you put an XL shoe tree in a size 8 chukka is may stretch but if you use the proper size you should be fine. I probably wouldn't bother using shoe trees for the unlined chukkas though.
