Yesterday was quite a unique day; it was the first time all the shoes we sold were by a single manufacturer. I’m not surprised they were Alden’s but it was unusual. Two guys were so excited about their new shoes they trashed their old pair and wore the new ones out of the store.
Here they are before and after; it’s not surprising they wore the new ones out.
Before; Prada Sport
After; Alden 947 All Weather Walker Brown Alpine Grain
Before; Pantofola D’oro
After; Alden 1492 Brown Suede Chukka, Flex Welt Soles
In hindsight it probably had something to do with the fact that Floyd Gilmore a.k.a. “Mr. Alden” was here for a good part of the afternoon. Floyd is the northeast rep for Alden, and is no rookie either. He’s now in his 53 year with the company. If there’s ever anything want to know about Alden, Floyd’s your man.
