Planning on getting these when Autumn rolls round. A much cheaper but very highly rated alternative

Not a fan of Alden with the poor QC of late at that particular pricepoint if buying within EU. Would rather go for Carmina, Vass.

If shoes, not boots, are an option, some of the Tricker's Bourton cordovan make ups at 40% sale might interest you.

Thanks for you input, will check carmina and vass out. Agree on alden price point in the eu, even with a us proxy still works out pretty pricey

Poor quality? Is this with a particular style or the brand in general?

Brand in general. Some complaints on StyleForum. Not sure how seriously to take them but they're there.

Trickers are very nice and a great alternative at that price point. Serious cordovan heads say that nothing is as good as Horween but Mogano is probably fine for the rest of us.

Ahh ok. Had no problems with the 3 leather pairs I have. Was interested in a suede pair on Trunk so wasn't sure if this was more of a recent quality issue.

People complain and bitch about anything so I'd take it with a pinch of salt.
