Did you grab it? Looks like a sweet makeup. I thought about calling but figured it was already gone anyways.

Yep, I was the lucky guy to get that pair.

It's always a random chance with the second list - who knows what the quality of the boots will actually be! - but I can assure you that if the boots are in good condition to wear, they'll be on my feet.

I bought and returned that 8.5 cigar loafer on the CDI last. It has issues.

I was so tempted as they looked fantastic. But they would def. be to big for me. However I think I know who that make up was for, which is odd that an irregular would hit the streets before the 1sts do. Also with the whiskey PTB in 11D maybe that means some Whiskey has finally become available! I have one particular makeup I'm really hoping drops.

Could someone please post the seconds list for 11d & 11.5d. I'm on the wrong list despite great effort to get the list for my size.
Thanks!

Lets see how long it takes to see these on ebay and the like. Probably not long at all.

I wouldn't expect to see the Whiskey NST boot on eBay.

Damn you big footed bastards! ...lol I missed it...Whiskey is my least favorite of the "rare" colors but NST is my favorite so I gave it a whirl...you beat me too it!

Glad someone grabbed them who plans to wear them and not flip them.

Thanks!

Here is the 11.5D list.

Sorry if this is a stupid question but does TSM buy seconds from Alden? Does this mean that this Whiskey boot/ the other rare shell makeups will be coming out somewhere soon?

Thanks for the heads up. Nothing interesting in my size, but how you got it through FB?

I'm glad to see it go to someone who will wear it rather than a flipper.

How is it cool to post a secret list on Facebook when there is an established e-mail distribution list for these?

 

EDIT - in a private, invitation-only group, I should add.

My post was unclear, my apologies. TSM has an established e-mail distribution list for all Alden irregulars. They also have a "secret" invitation-only Facebook group that often announces what exotic shell irregulars have just come in or are coming in shortly. You obviously know this already.

 

I don't see how it's wrong for someone to post a screenshot of the exotic list as it appears on the (not-so) secret Facebook group page, when, as you implied, TSM makes that information readily available. It's not as though this came from a personal post on one of the Zapatka's private Facebook pages or something, or that it came from a private email between a customer and TSM...
