Aldens will need some real babying to survive a Northumberland winter unscathed.

+1 for vibergs, either the boot or shoe are great!

I agree, the Alden are nicer IMO but that crepe / leather tip sole looks cool but isn't very hardwearing (I have the all weather walkers with a very similar sole).

Don't like the colour of the Aldens and Cracka is right about the sole.
Had the same on mine and not only was it surprisingly heavy I ended up having to replace after less than six months and I only wore them about once a week.

The quality is really good. I got the C1 Jacket in the end. Compared with a £2.5k Everest Parka, for example, the value is amazing.

I would love the shield parka but it may be just too expensive, even on sale.

Nigel Benn. They are relatively TTS. Not sure how the Koreans tend to size compared Japanese designers but Alpha Shadows and Kafka have a lot if you are interested.

Will post one when I get back home later. Still not too sure on the look but I am warming to it!

Edit - Just ordered the Shield Parka so will compare the two.
