-1 to the allegation above.
But still a nice shoe.
Alden DC has these same whiskey shortwingtip bals in stock. I just picked up a pair a month ago. Tempted to pick up the 974 (color 8 version) or the BB version. May have to hold off as I have other shell ideas and limited funds.
If any of you are seriously interested in this shoe, I would call Kathy at Alden DC. Alden SF doesn't actually have this shoe in stock as their website indicates. They have Alden DC ship it out for them when ordered from their SF website. DC actually has more sizes in stock than the Alden SF website indicates. I discovered all of this when I called Kathy after believing I missed out on my size on the Alden SF site. Kathy and Alden DC are awesome!
PUBLIC SERVICE ANMOUNCEMENT:
Leather Soul - Beverly Hills just received the Style Forum Boot in #8 (Plaza Last, Medallion Toe) today. Little too narrow for my wide feet, but I hope that this helps somebody.
Also, Whiskey LWB have arrived to Alden San Fran and Pre-orders have begun and hopefully won't be over for TSM's Ravello Wing Tip Boot with leather sole.
If anybody knows of anything other arrivals or finds stuff out in the future, please let me know. I am a 9D. I have a brand new J, Crew Ravello LWB and a Ravello Chukka , neither of which had touched even carpet. I'll make a formal post as my intent was not to break rules. Just wanted to let you guys know of three awesome new offerings.
Can these be ordered online?
my thoughts exactly.. I'm trying to convince myself I need this boot, but I already have the jcrew pct and the LS indy in #8.. not sure adding a third #8 boot would be worth it if it couldnt be utilized in a more formal way, which I think all eyelets would help
