Alden's best selling model in Japan. V-Tip Modified last. Faded color #8.

Ravello, in comparison.

The faded #8 is almost "Ravello" like.

Black shell, V-tip, Modified last. Pretty much a Japan exclusive model.

Gotta dress appropriate for the restaurant but need to get around as well ---- AF53s?!  Or too much salt and slush even for those guys?

I wore Viberg boots all day today, but I am changing into Context black tankers tonight for a holiday event. No other choice. Leffot's Black Indy on commando would be appropriate if it had been released, or any of Alden of Carmel's black or brown calfskin boots on commando soles.

Probably picked over by now, but anyone have the 12.5 and 13 list from shoe mart?

Thinking of my dad for Christmas.

See Ya,

thanks Steve. it may be too soon, but I feel "magical for a day" is worse than no magic at all.

On a side note, I wonder how they decided who to give them to...

thanks mike, the manager assured me the other transaction had gone through minutes before mine.

Congrats to those who endured the nonsense and got a decent model at a good price.

hard to say. I recently bought ravello lhs from the seconds list, I love them. in tsm defense, I rather deal with this craziness for alden seconds, than not have an opportunity to get them at all.

ouch, that would leave a bad taste for sure.

Just kidding!  But seriously, I wouldn't be surprised if that's what happened.

too soon, too soon.

Sometimes I marvel at the power of the Internet. I have never met Mr.DV yet was thrilled for him yesterday he had scored his grail boots.
Fast forward to today and I sign on and see this crushing blow. I am so sorry "my friend". I really feel your pain.
