 Leffot also received a run of Color 8 LWBs with antique edge recently.  They still have a few sizes left.
+1 Does it also happen to be the Dover pattern?  I've been searching high and low for that exact shoe for the past 48 hours, and haven't found anything. BTW, Does anyone know if there are any Alden retailers on West Roosevelt Road in Chicago that are currently having a sale???
YES! PLEASE!  BTW, Does anyone know where I can get replacement laces for my Indys?
I notice that one is Plaza and one is Hampton, Waterlock/Oak, Calf/Shell, but I think you made the right choice in favoring the 9016.  As you know, black shell looks great on a dress shoe.  I see your point, but it could get really annoying when you consider all the potential sizing exchanges and returns, dissatisfaction with flaws, ect.  Then you would have all these crazy Alden folks annoying the hell out of you instead of the retailer. Remember, no good deed goes...

The pattern.  Particularly on the side of the shoe.  Look at them Side by side.
You and me both.  Whenever someone says that they can "Make it work" with heel/tongue pads, insoles, thick socks, ect. it makes me   Its a different story if someone buys the correct size and they fit to begin with, but fit even better with a heel/tongue pad or insoles.  To keep shoes that are the wrong size to begin with and try to compensate with these measures seems like too much of a nearsighted fix for a pair of shoes that you plan to have for decades.  Sometimes,...
