I emailed them asking about the 30% off and pricing, but they never wrote back.  So for anyone else, looks like calling is the best option.

I would just call, they are extremely nice in person. Also shipped very fast to me.

I have a couple pair of shoes that are getting close to needing a re-sole and I think I will probably add taps to them.

Taps definitely help longevity, but I prefer adding topys. I tend to have back/hip issues and have found that taps can be tough unless they're fit so that the sole is cut, not just added on top. Best of luck!

Looks like Leffot got a run of Bristol boots in Black shell, also.

Wow. I haven't been bitten by the black shell bug yet, but these are stunners. Between these and the Rydenfan boots, I might end up owning a pair or 2 of black shell boots from Alden if I can't contain my wallet.

Side note: I heard black shell won't have brass eyelets anymore either. So basically no shell at all with brass anymore?

Black and Color 8 are the new Black.
4 years ago I had no black shell. Ignored it.

Today I have 4 pair.

Don't sleep on the beauty of black !

When was the last batch of Ravello or Whiskey we saw ? Seems like ages ago.

Agreed, total stunners!   That might be the best black shell I've seen.  Toss up between this and recent TSM Plaza makeup.  WOW!

You can only get brass shell with brass eyelets @chrisefi

I have the recent TSM makeup and it's gorgeous. I prefer the all eyelets, but the medallion and flex sole on the Leffot makeup are really sweet.

I think I would prefer a double sole on those bristol boots. The single sole looks a bit dainty.

I owned one pair of boots with a single sole. Single flex sole, to be more specific. I found the sole to be too thin for real city walking. Walking over some cobblestone streets I felt like I could actually feel the stones and their shapes on my feet. Maybe the flex sole was too flexible?

I much prefer the robustness of a double sole.

Anyone else have the same experience?
