I wonder what he uses to burnish like that, they are stunning.

Gents,

If you have an interest in a hunter green suede tanker boot, Citishoes has them (apparently in most sizes). I passed as I think they overlap too much with the choco tankers.

The 10E Leffot NSTs are staring me in the face. I wish there were more in the wild photos of that model on Google...

Yeah there is a lot of panic around Leffot pre orders going fast, when a simple call or email tends to alleviate the issues/concerns. Or at least in my experiences.

Same. My last order, ironically the black naval boot, was the same. OOS online but I called and was able to complete the deposit over the phone.

Snagged a pretty beat-up pair of Cigar chukkas on eBay this week. They came pretty beat-up looking. They may need a restoration soon, but I figured in the meantime I'll get a few wears out of them. I did some deer bone and Reno treatment.

I was lucky enough to snag a pair this go round. Sat at my desk until 12 and kept hitting refresh. I guess being a desk-jokey has it upsides.

That's what you might call a "sunburst" finish in the guitar slinging world….    :)

It was a nice spring day so I rocked the Commando trippers which had been boxed for 2 months.

Wonder if that's calf or shell.
Either way, beautiful work. I would frame and hang.

Granted i was a non-stock size, but still worth a try. 

 





I just emailed Leffot and am awaiting their reply. Thanks a lot for the tip. I have wanted these boots since i saw them last year. Lets hope they can do something for me.

 



@breck81 Che emailed me back informing me they could add me!! I was able to get on the Naval Boot run because of your tip. Thank you so much for letting me know. I am so damn pumped for these beautiful boots. Now trying to figure out a way to procure some whiskey/ravello/cigar shell boots within a reasonable amount of time.

I need some help guys. Very very frustrated in trying to get my size down in the Barrie last. Tried many sizes and now have purchased 3 LWB that I can wear but don't seem to fit well. I posted similar question a month or so ago and got several good suggestions. I'm an 11D/C width on the branock...literally right in the point between those 2 widths. Both feet measure in width by a ruler 4.0625. My right foot is just a hair short of an 11 length. Left is spot on 11 length. Moderately high archs. Ive tried: 10D to short, 10.5D heel slips and slightly to much volume. 11C has been the most comfortable but still slight heel slip. But my foot seems to "fit" into the 11C the best. But I am cinching the laces pretty close together. And seems still to much volume. I feel like the 11 length is good bc it feels like it fits into place. Should I venture into an 11B? Those are not readily available. So I'm scared to pull the trigger. I really love Alden's LWB style and am pretty disappointed by my failures. Any suggestions would be helpful and please realize I have read every thread on this topic...so in not being lazy...looking for similar experiences by others and thoughts/suggestions...thanks in advance! Marcus

I have to say...it honestly sounds like the Barrie just doesn't work for your foot.

If you are trying on brand new shoes you are going to get heel slip no matter what IMHO.

Barrie has a super wide heel. A little heel slip doesn't bother me. My LWB are fully broken in and still slip a little. Length is spot on, though. That's life.

Right?? I have to assume it's calf but I could be fooled.
