Great pick up CEE.  Had I been a little more patient, that would have been the version I would have snagged.  Still very happy with mine.

That's pretty steep, $772 plus shipping? Wow, we're approachng eight bills.

Can somebody help me out? I'll only want to buy them if they are made on the Grant-last or a last that is wider than the Grant-last. 

 

Cheers!

 

 

According to the shop, these are made on the Aberdeen last and not the Grant last. That means I'll have to pass (these will be to small). Pity. I'm looking for a suede boot in the Grant last, or slighty wider last.

 

Who has links to online shops in Europe that sell Alden (I'm very familiar with Frans Boone but he has nothing in stock in my size and in the Grant last)?

Very jive boot. What shop is it? Shoes and shirts?
What would be the sizing difference between abardeen and grant?

Yep, shoes & shirts in holland.

 

If you look at the Alden size chart (google 'alden lasts') then it appears that Aberdeen would be the narrowest last and the last with the least volume, while the grant is a real true to size last. I don't like my shoes too snuggy so no Aberdeen for me (maybe I would change my mind after trying it in person (with e-width for example), but I haven't so far so I won't buy it online).

Yeah, the price of hand stitched models is now about the same as an exotic. I am afraid of the price on my pending Ravello NST boots. Wonder if they are going to hit 8... Will hopefully know soon!

Edit: I looked at the original invoice, they are $775, but shipping included.
