The information about the preorders says they expect this current batch in early 2014 but it might be longer.

 

A March-April 2014 delivery for the current preorders would be consistent with my experience with Leffot.  They are a pleasure to deal with and have great make-ups.

Congrats!!

I got the Ultras but it looks like the tree is too bulky for the toebox. My LS Plaza captoe's vamp is flat compare to the bulky triangular shape of the trees. Got a feelign this would stretch the leather the wrong way. Not sure if I want to get the Alden ones if they're exactly the same.

As seen here Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

 

I asked the same question couple of weeks ago, although my woodlore shoe tree is the combination shoe tree, not ultra.

 

Woodlore shoe tree has a higher volume, that is it will push the vamp up and could not fill up the toe area of the shoe.

As least I could not put this shoe tree inside my alden boots, but some people here say they can.

The alden shoe tree has a lower volume and a better fit for alden shoe/boot.

 

So right now I only put the woodlore shoe tree inside those shoes are tight across my feet, see if the tree could stretch the vamp.

Thanks. I figured. Looks like the Alden ones were rebranded Rochesters. It does push the vamp up significantly and does not fill all the way to the front.

GOD forbid the dreaded shoe freeze...  ugh!!  crazy.gif   Pre-orders don't actually exist until they arrive.  And if you haven't paid full price, you haven't actually spent the money yet.  Thus, you do have the funds to buy the new saddles my friend.  (I sense weakness in this one...  Has my jedi mind trick worked yet?) puzzled.gif

Also with preorders, once they actually arrive you can convince yourself that you're just paying $600 for a pair of Leffot NST #8 boots, not $720 since the preorder deposit is long since forgotten.

Sounds like "No soup for you."

 

Wow, the Alden nazi... never thought I'd pair those two words together!
