You received your pair or got an email confirmation?

I don't see anything in my inbox...

I'm not in on the preorder but speaking with one who is, the emails seem to be going out this evening and boots shipping tomorrow. From what I've heard anyways....

Super jelly!

They confirmed to me by email that the captoe boot is indeed Barrie last

If you wore 11D in Van Last...would you guys buy 11D in a Barrie lasted boot?

email confirmation with a promise to ship ASAP when i confirmed my address.

i'm on the west coast so i'll likely get mine last. there were about a dozen on the email I received, though, and I'm not sure how many that order held (i think 13 on my email... and i figured 24 started and maybe 9 took the earlier offer for another cigar shoe or a refund or something).

Time to clean these babies up..and they need it. Love my cigars.

Cool! That's weird because I emailed them last Friday, and they said they hadn't received an update from Alden. Guess they finally did.

Can't wait for these...

The first run of the Cigar CT boot was on indeed on Barrie
post #117315 of 122416
I was actually wondering whether or not AoM was mistaken about the Cigar CT boots today being Grant as the ones a few months back were Barrie. I thought maybe it was just a typo but I can't tell from the picture they emailed out. They (and the Cigar NST loafer) both look amazing. Congrats to the few that grabbed these extra pairs today. AoM is great to do business with.

Funny enough, I'd actually trade someone my Grant Cigar CT boots for Barrie (as crazy as that sounds, I know people prefer the grant last). The Barrie last just fits my style better.

Can't wait to get my WT boots in a few days from AoM!

Now, based on the pics below, do the folds appear to be in the right place (size wise)?
Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)





Also is it normal that the leather is making creaking noises as I move in the them, particularly the shaft? Is that because they are stiff, or does this mean they are indeed too small?

The creaking noise is definitely normal in my experience and goes away after a few wears. Every once in a while it comes back if they haven't been worn in a while. That's at least what I have found.

Those PCT boots look great. Enjoy!

I too want to get ahold of a Barrie Color 8 wingtip boot in the near future. I have to get over the hump of preorders I'm on first!

You'll have to post some pics during the day and report back after they've broken in some.
