Well, talked to someone at the Alden shop today and they basically confirmed what I had already expected, last pair available and that their supposed to look like that, some pairs worse than others . Now, If you google Alden ravello chukka boot's you don't see a single pair with that type of a defect.
Guess I'll have to wait even longer for my grail shoe. If anyone knows of any place that has these in a 8.5D I would greatly appreciate the help.
I saw a pair of Ravello chukkas at Alden of SF with a dime sized spot on the toe where the dye didn't take. The spot was much lighter than Whiskey. I brought this to the attention of the salesman Robert - the tall fellow who used to be a cobbler - and he said they were OK selling it as a first quality shoe. I thanked him for his time and passed on the pair. He said he was sure someone would buy it.post #16400 of 1224169/30/11 at 5:31pmpost #16401 of 1224169/30/11 at 7:36pmQuote:
Leffot says they're the perfect winter boot. I think a week of NYC winter would destroy thesepost #16402 of 1224169/30/11 at 7:56pmpost #16403 of 1224169/30/11 at 8:14pmpost #16404 of 1224169/30/11 at 8:36pmThread StarterQuote:

From experience, they dont immediately post their inventory to the blog. It usually takes about a week. Stevo said it allowed their regular clients/walk-ins a chance to place their orders. This is especially true with rare shell colors. Usually by the time its posted online, its either sold out and/or sizing is limitedpost #16410 of 1224169/30/11 at 11:14pmQuote:I think you guys are getting me mixed up with someone else. The creased lady calf boots that were posted by another member weren't mine. I think it was NAMOR who asked a question re: LS's return policy, which I answered, as I had recently purchased a different pair of calf boots from LS (Pitt Boots) and had asked Bryan of LSBH about their return policy, which was a question he was slightly rude in responding to.
Anyway, I wouldn't try to return shoes that were even slightly creased up, and do agree that the lady calf boots that were posted shouldn't be on the table for return.
On a different note, I really wish that there were more (actually, any) Alden's posted on B&S in my size. I always see such great deals and end up disappointed since they're usually larger than my shoe size (9.5). Saw some worn-once Alden x J. Crew Color 8 captoes going for a great price, but unfortunately, a size too large.
