Guess TSM locked us in at the lower price. The boot listed above is $35 more than I was charged.

Gotta hate the interception!  The last time that happened to me, I ordered a pair from Alden DC that arrived around Dec 15th.  My wife snagged it without telling me, wrapped it, and stuck it under the Christmas tree.  I had no idea, as I had lost track of which shoes were arriving and when!  Talk about a surprise for a Christmas gift, ugh! :eh:

I would actually like to see that. 


A video would be even better!

Hmm... should a criminal defense attorney strike a potential jurer wearing these beauties during voir dire?  I like the strategy Mike!

 

BTW, wonderful shoes my friend!

Seeing my wife is the best part of my day followed closely with enjoying shell with the boys.


Have been really busy at work and haven't posted pics or anything much recently, but I do enjoy looking and reading.  Love the Tifosi-Ryden humor (intended or not) and the recent shell.  This thread is a distant third on my list behind wife and daughter, and very much appreciated!

I simply hoped to contribute by getting a photo up so folks could get a look since there was a lot of suspense building. Apologies to Tifosi if it came across any other way.


You are good my friend.  That is an epic 2nd post though!  :slayer:

Guys question on resoling: thinking of having my 975s resoled to mirror the Leffot color 8 LWB. Because I'm a shoe terminology newb, how should I communicate what I want to an Nelson: "resole with Alden like "antique" edge with double leather & Dainite sole." Does that communicate it correctly? (I realize the leffot lwb doesn't have Dainite.)

Thanks guys!!!

Trying to determine if I should prep myself to try and jump on the next Tanker preorder in 7.5E. 


On that note does anyone have a 7.5E barrie boot they want to sell me or even ship me to to try on. My sizing woes have me ready to book a flight to DC to see Kathy and get properly sized on all the lasts haha. I swear it will save me more money in the long run.

That's funny! Was at work today in a meeting and had the same thought. For some reason, I hate to order things and send them back, especially to small businesses. Makes me feel badly for wasting their resources. Was daydreaming about "gee, wouldn't it be nice to be able to have some trial fit shoes to send around?" I have numerous pairs of 9D shoes and boots on barrie and TB. I recently had a lightbulb go off and realized that the 9D barrie shoes really don't fit that well. If I throw on some thick winter socks no problem but otherwise they are too big. I'm confident with my plaza and grant sizing and okay with my barrie and TB boot sizing but a bit off with other shoes and lasts.
I briefly went from daydream to "okay, how would this work, people have to buy in for what $750? a $1000? then forum member ship out a pair of shoes, and then..." well, back to the subject of the meeting I was in. Don't see it happening but it was far more stimulating to my brain than what was being discussed.

For my CAN brethren. Get Amazon dot ca Visa card and pay no transaction fees when making international purchase. Just signed up for one. Should help us a bit.

Wait so we pay the same as the US but in CAD?

 

That would help us more than a bit, it would save us like 20% on everything basically right now. I'm confused.

Sorry but that cannot possibly be it.  Feel bad for you guys with the currency.

It's not, I think the credit card companies charge a fee to convert the funds. That's what we save it seems. Minor but every bit helps.
