PSA for the 10.5 barries - Leather Soul Ravello barrie shortwings at a reasonable BIN price. Half size too big for me or they'd be mine. http://www.ebay.com/itm/Alden-for-Leathersoul-Ravello-Shell-Cordovan-Shortwings-10-5-D-11-D-JCrew-/272111371656?&_trksid=p2056016.m2516.l5255
Some nice adds to the sale section today - can't recommend the juniper walts enough.
As a quick follow-up to my post from yesterday - I spoke with Aram at Ah One and he said that swapping out the metal shank for a wood replacement is a common request and a modification he is happy to perform during a standard resole. I'm looking forward to gradually making my Alden collection road warrior approved.
My advice would be to give them a good shine yourself, take high-quality pictures and sell as-is. In my experience as a seller and buyer, used calf alden's that are in decent shape generally sell in the $100 to $200 range and recrafted shoes don't seem to command much if any of a premium, especially if recrafted by an independent cobbler. With Alden restoration now running $150+ with 2 month+ lead times, I think you're better off putting the restoration money towards...

These have many, many wears on them and are likely due for a restoration and resole soon. While its not a real option, my preference would be to have Alden do a full refinish on the uppers and convert the double leather soles to commando, so they're probably headed to Bnelson or Ah One to be put on...
I'm thinking about picking up a pair of the galway-esque oak and country calf boots. What's the price on these for European based customers? Debating buying online vs when I'm next in Madrid or using a proxy. Thanks!

[[SPOILER]] Can you post a shot in natural light, if you don't mind? I've wanted a pair of these since they were originally offered, but I'm wondering if they'll be too close to the VBC dark mocha flannel that's been offered in a few eff rounds. Thanks!
Please post pictures if you have a chance - it will be easier to gauge which colors would be best.
