    I think earlier this year there was a b&s classifieds listing for a pair of Aldens similar to those.

    ...but not the Foot Balance line, it seems. Or am I mistaken? I unloaded a pair of Foot Balance Alden's a while back - they, too, were ugly.

    @TheNeedMachine

    Honestly, I have no idea. They could be a custom order (Alden did a lot of that back in the day). The pair I've seen was specially made for someone with a serious foot problem.

    Fun fact - Doctors actually prescribed All Weather Walkers, among other models, back in the day.

    If your gonna keep the collection at a modest level that amount of storage will do just fine, but from someone who just today had to totally redo his tie storage situation because I have 600+, if your gonna be buying them up left and right, your gonna want numbered stackable bins and a spreadsheet, they aren't pretty but they get the job done.

    EDIT: For my personal collection though I use the automatic rotator that hooks onto your closet pole. Enough space for the necessities.

    This thing can fit about 30; which is all I need for personal use. I only wear ties once or twice a week. If I ever get to the point where I need to vlookup the location of my ties, I will admit that I have a problem

    Bottom character says "Thunder" pronounced in mandarin chinese Lei (lay).

    Second 4 literal meaning: Beautiful Woman/Person (Comparable to) Jade.
    I think a better translation is like this: "A beautiful woman is comparable to (the beauty of) jade"
    Mandarin chinese pronunciation "mei ren ru yu"

    Anyone have an idea who makes shoes for United Colors of Benetton? These were made in Romania.
