If anyone is looking for a 12D, that's the only pair she has left now.

12D's are gone. Just informed someone at the office who has been searching for a few months and he grabbed them.

JR - appreciate the heads up

Also wondering if there are additional fees to be expected when the shoes come to the US. Thanks
I have shoes inbound from them and will let you know how it goes.  Unfortunately, I got stuck with Fedex. 

I've ordered many times from the Bureau with delivery by Fedex and have never had any extra fees or duty.

Pepper,

 

I would seriously try a Plaza 11E and see how that flies.  Plaza is a very roomy last.

Good to know that if I do send them in, they should get sorted. However, the fit and the look hasn't given me much reason to do so.

If I do get them repaired, it will be primarily out of a sense of lingering guilt for letting so much cordovan (they're size 13) go unused. Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)


Also, I'm in Budapest regularly and I can get custom-spec Vass for less than Alden's European pricing, so it's a different value proposition here. I'll take Vass over Alden every single time, and I've yet to see any quality issues with them so far, even though they're truly handmade. Although I very much wanted to like them, my two pairs of Aldens have been disappointing in actual use and it's unlikely that I'll be getting any more.
Indeed, my 360° Goyser-stitched boots from other makers have been super-durable and confidence-inspiring so far, but even my less-robustly-constructed handmade shoes/boots haven't given me any concerns, despite the soggy Norwegian climate. I'm not sure whether the Indy heel is properly repairable, since the tacks move without any resistance in the holes. It just doesn't seem like that great of a construction method to me in the first place.


Thanks for the replies.

Which model is this? Indy in #8 on TB?

Gents, thinking to letting my Leffot Dovers spot but not 100% sure..

Need to make room for another EG but might regret letting these unlined beauties go.

Hmmm, I will rethink it for sure. Time to search for Leffot Dovers pictures and think again.

yes....these are from Leather Soul....I like the plaza last but the silver buckle is what sold me on these

 

Beautiful shoes.

 

Query:  How difficult would it be for a cobbler to swap out a buckle on a monk?
