I don't know why, but these boots are not as comfortable as the Indy NXT's I purchased a week or so ago. Could be the difference in the last and/or soles; no idea.

They sure look great though. Quite a few compliments on them today.

I'm in awe. 18 bids.... $1025.00 I guess that's somebody's Grail... Or they just don't give a fk.

I think those are worth it to somebody who does not want to wait. A free market fair deal.

I went up to $900, but beyond that, I'm willing to wait. Just bought a pair of Ravello Captoe boots from Alden DC so this was hard enough to justify.

My grail is a color 4 WTB in commando. One can dream.

Yep - for a little under a year for size 10.5D (Grant Last). I shouldn't have actually gotten them this round or any time soon, but a few people ahead of me either passed or didn't return their calls for the last few weeks so I lucked out.

Edit: When I had first gotten on the list, I was 7th for my size.

Im also on the list for a couple of their boots but i never received a call from them. Hopefully i didnt miss their call, as i didnt get any calls from the DC area (203 area code) I guess i will have to wait for the next batch.:brick: 

 

and btw, congrats on an awesome pair of boots!

Thanks! Out of all the Alden retailers I've dealt with, Alden DC is by far the best IMO. Talking to Kathy is like talking to a friend. I'd give them a ring Monday to reaffirm your place on the list and make sure you didn't in fact miss out. It's gonna be a while before those boots are made again due to the current shot supply of Ravello.

Thanks everyone for the kind words over the last few days, the wedding was a great time!

If you don't use IG these are the shoes I wore. Cigar NST.

Also, you know you have a problem when everyone who had a speech mentioned my shoe habit!

Not much love for my Navy CXL PTB's - but I like them.

Damn, you did something right. I was 2nd in my size. No luck. Was crushing.

I had the same problem, I went with an E width.

203 is The area code for Connecticut. Not DC... Hope you didn't miss a call...
