I can see why I had similar issues with LS. I have kind of accepted and understand for them it makes total sense a customer who spends a large amount of money should receive certain perks as doing so is vital for the business. My advice pick an alden retailer and try to make the bulk of your purchases from then.

Otherwise resellers could just come and cherry pick the most desirable models.

I don't begrudge a retailer for rewarding customers that spend the most, however we also have the right to not shop at that shop. Many people decided that they wouldn't buy from LS because of their policies with regards to rare shell. If Leffot decides to go that route perhaps people will do the same with them.

TSM/DC/AoM all have very fair and customer friendly policies with regards to rare shell. Nearly all of mine have come from those 3 shops.

i asked leffot about it. they mentioned that its against alden policy to advertise rare shell. there was no list. Only word of mouth. hopefully thats the case.

I can second that, Alden prohibit retailers from openly advertising rare shell make ups. So some ways for retailers to get the word out is either a waiting list (TSM), word of mouth (Leffot), select client list (LS), or email list (AoM). I think AoM's method is the best compromise since it's first come first serve and fair/open to everyone who signs up to the list.

Really love the whiskey tankers (d.s3 on IG), it's slightly darker than whiskey shades of the past but I actually prefer that over the lighter shades.

Keep in mind Leffot only offers orders once the production confirmation comes from Alden. This the shorter wait. I imagine they have had the order in for a few years...

Do you happen to have a longstanding history of sales with Leffot?

If so, I would be irked. If not, I would not blame them for not reaching out to you. 

There was likely only 12 pairs, so I wouldn't be too offended if I were you. 

Sometimes it is not a "secret list" only a very small list that is once every few years.

Sometimes it is just the luck of the draw that you were in the right place at the right time.

I don't quite understand why people get pissed at retailers and not Alden and their factory. Retailers have to move product and don't really control the amount of supply. If Alden could produce a larger and more steady flow of rare shell shoes, these double secret probation lists would not really matter.
