I've heard this a few times lately, and I guess their rebuild station is notorious for quickshot work. Anyone else heard that? I don't want to slander them and be inaccurate.
looking good djgo-cat-go. Don,t want to steal your glory, but I did the same with mine, way better than the original
It has been a long while since I posted anything on FL. I would like to share some pictures of my customized Redwing Beckman 9012s. Since it was needed to resole them and put new heels on the monsters. I always wanted a little different look on them, since i didn't like the original roccia sole and redwing heels, so I asked my cobbler to put on a double leather sole, stacked leather heel and finish it with Vibram Chevron soles and heels.. I asked for a slightly curved heel, and polish the finish of heel and sole to a high sheen.. The result is dramatically different and so beautiful, I feel like resoling all my Redwings!! So, what do you think?

To be clear, they are new Indy boots, no. 405. The stitching around the sole seems to be in the wrong place (closer to the edge than you would expect) but my real concern is that the heel on the left shoe is not well attached with a visible gap between heel and shoe on one side first visible and appearing on the other side after a day or so of wearing. The heel part of the shoe body now can be "wiggled" from the heel just a little by hand.
For all I know they might send out 1000 great pairs for every questionable one. Personally I'm 2 out of nine with Alden shoes that had significant problems in the last few years.
Call Alden and leave your number for the lady to return your call. She will take care of that and any other problem you have, she has even taken care of eBay Aldens I got that were a little screwed up.
I do know that alden does have seconds that show up at the shoe mart and eBay with problems you mention, they were heavily discounted when sold. If you by chance got a pair of those, they will still repair them for a min cost.
Nice "dh66!" Today, I'm wearing my new Frye Sutton mid lace boots:
I swapped the factory laces for a pair of custom horsehide laces
I must say, the online pic doesn't do them justice. They're nicer in person. Thanks!They look amazing. I googled "Frye Sutton mid lace boots" and the result wasn´t anything like yours.
Perhaps it´s the high shine and delux laces that does the trick?
