I am still on the fence about this one. I still believe that they could be worn one time. I have a pair of LHS (about to be for sale) that have black soles. They are with 100% certainty the original soles. They say "Made in USA" like other Alden soles, but they do not have the Alden logo stamped on them.
There is obvious creasing to those shoes, but I think it would be much worse if they were on round 2 of full soles. The shape/construction of the Alden full strap really exaggerates the creasing unless they are maintained really well.
Maybe I am too trusting of others.
