Are they shipping them to you? Don't recall ShoeMart ships to Canada. I could be wrong.

Gah. Omega Man, you're right.
Sucks for me but I guess it sucks more for ShoeMart as it looks like I won't be buying. I think I'll wait for LeatherSoul's Plaza Cap Toe Restock. (Tom, can I pre-order these in any way? I'm on the email list I think, but I'm not exactly sure what that does for me.)
(Thanks again for the photos.) I'm more a bit more adventurous than the Barrie allows - I was deciding between the Plaza and the Grant, and I think the Grant is a perfect balance between fashion and boring IMO.
I think I might grab the #8 Cap Toe Boots from ShoeMart.
yes the Barrie is very traditional, IMO they are the most similar to the vintage Florsheim longwings that pop up on ebay now and then. I like to think of the Grant as more utilitarian/military and the Plaza as more urban/business 500. But I am pretty sure that to most people not familiar with Aldens, they will just think, "damn those are nice dress shoes."
Must have missed that. Looks like they pulled the boot for the season already though...
I think they just pulled it off the website because there is a coupon code for 20% at JCrew right now and since collabs are excluded, they take it off the website instead of dealing with the problem in case one of the orders slips through with the discount.
I've been looking at the new 404 and it seems identical to Alden of Carmel's AF64s. Has anyone actually seen a 404 and an AF64 to see if there is a difference? I've been assuming that the AF64's "heavily oiled leather uppers" is the Brown Kudu. I really like the new 403's as well. I already have too many Indy boots, but I foresee picking up either a 403 or a 404 in the relatively near future.
