Leffot has announced the 744LTD:
I am not paying $760 for the same exact boot but with a captoe and brown leather. I wish they changed the last some and/or updated some other design features. My 721's are more bulbous than my 1K's (probably just because of the overlayed wingtip), which is not preferred.
If I didn't have 721's, I'd definitely pick up 744's. But, since I do, there's not enough differentiation there to make me shell (pun) out more than Alden-shell prices for the 744's. *shrug*
You can see the toebox of the shoe in the leffot ad.
Saw your post on that on Leffot.
