Alden; All Day Long

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.

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.

Before and After

A while back I posted pictures of two Edward Green Shannon’s, one men’s and one of the new ladies collection. Both were in the try on stage so the soles were not yet attached and in the case of the men’s brown boot the color was not yet finished.

Both pair came out looking fantastic. The men’s are very masculine in Dark Oak on the double leather soles. The woman’s are great looking with the punching around the foot and the V stitching down the front of the shaft.

Incidentally this is the first pair of ladies shoes produced and delivered to the U.S. by Edward Green. I’m quite certain my wife will enjoy them…
