Thank you for the information.. Unionmade does not have any boots listed in cordovan currently. Do you happen to know if they stock cordovan boots?

They are restocking their Halleck in the coming months, you can google pics of it. Wingtip boot in color 8, very nice. The next version will be a dark edge though, not antique like previous versions. They probably do others but that's probably their best known cordovan boot.

You know what.. if I compare it (and call it) Color 8, I think the color is atrocious and unacceptable. If I look at it on it's own and don't think it should be a particular color (because it is not color 8), I think it looks great. I will probably keep the Tankers along with my Navals (was thinking of selling) to make the #BurntToastPak. lol Who knows, maybe this color will patina nicer than color 8 in time.

Hello all, I am trying to get my hands on some natty chromexcel cap toe boots. Similar to the ones offered by Leffot (pictured below). Unfortunately, Leffot is out of stock in my size and won't be restocking for a while. I've been searching the usual Alden sources, but figured I'd post here for additional help! If anyone knows of a source for these I would appreciate it very much!! I'd also *entertain* the idea of non-Alden brands if anyone has suggestions. Thank you very, very much!!

I would like to get those Leffot natty CXL cap toes too! Oak Street Bookmakers has something similar called the trench boot (http://oakstreetbootmakers.com/footwear/natural-captoe-trench-boot). Not as sleek as the Aldens.

Thanks for the tip! You're right though, something about those look off to me. Maybe it's how bent upwards the toe is?

Leffot might be the only one with that specific makeup.  J.Crew had an Alden natural cxl captoe boot with commando sole but no longer made; I wanted this makeup.  Viberg makes a natural cxl captoe boot (limited runs) but not as dressy/more casual - which is partially why i'm selling my pair

I think JR is right, here. I checked a whole lot of the usual Alden retailers, and none of them offer that makeup. J.Crew did that with a commando sole, and Leffot does it with a flexwelt sole.

 

Leffot's most recent run was up for pre-order in March of this year, so I would not be surprised if they do another one in the late winter or early spring. Did you ask them to be notified if they do another preorder? You will probably have to wait until then.

There is really nothing dressy about natty cxl in any makeup IMHO....and I certainly would not unload my natty captoe bergs either...that being said the pictured boot is beautiful by Alden and a terrific alternative :)

I think there's a 9.5D on Grailed if that's your size...

Haha, agreed, natty cxl is a very casual leather in general, but the Alden on Barrie/flat welt/270 degree is just more sleek looking than the Vibergs (even on 2030 last) IMO.  I think the Aldens just pair better with chinos & can be dressed up a bit, while Vibergs I would pair with jeans/maybe some chinos.

 

Unfortunately (& fortunately), the rule of addition by subtraction is another reason to sell the 'bergs in my case
