I'm guessing you're talking about Moulded Shoe? What CXL boots are you waiting on? I've been waiting ages for some CXL WT boots.
I saw some plain toe #8 boots and cap toe #8 boots on the Modified last at the Lakota House in Japan last month. Couldn't justify paying over $1K for a pair of Alden boots, even if they're rare shell Modified last boots.
CXL wingtip are on order. no idea dates.
i have a pair of #8 boots from moulded. around $800
