We named this boot the "Charles" in order to honor my father-in-law, Charles Adams. Charles returned for a second campaign in the Korean war after recovering from injuries sustained in the first. He is a double Purple Heart award recipient. He wore genuine paratrooper boots which is where the name "Jumper Boot" is derived. -JS

Just got these in and am happy to say not only do they fit perfectly with just the right amount of contour to the last (thank you to Jeff for the sizing advice!) but the cordovan has a deeply rich hue simply unable to see in the photos. Construction, stitching, and the like are all equally on par with anything I've seen from English makes. Easily now my most attractive pair of boots and looking forward to many years of wear.
The boots are beautiful. SB added a few special touches that are subtle but elegant. The make up included the commando sole which for me is a must. Ordering process was easy and the personalized service exemplary. SB will be forever my primary source for Alden boots.
