Depending on your size, I'm sure you'll have a chance to snag a pair. They usually have them available on the site after they receive their shipment. If not, I'm sure another pre-order won't be far away.

I definitely need a black single monk shoe like the least ever in the world, but I'll wear it just to get at least one use out of it. not a big black shoe fan (still haven't worn my jcrew cadets from the original discount they offered lol)

my buddy from out of town asked for a quick family pic today and laughed at how someone could need/acquire so much lol.. some will just never know hehehhe

(most of have seen)




  Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
I LOVE how they are in front of (what looks like) the television. I'd likely be looking at the shoes more that whats on the tube.

Lol... I didn't even notice the TV.  Do you really store them like that??  Awesome... :rotflmao:

thank you gents, and as I've mentioned a couple times recently in this thread.. if folks are 11.5barrie/12TTS... I might be purging.. not at this point now, but life changes have put my mind in a place where I grab some 405 indys 6 days out of the week, the rest can gather dust for all I care. I have some immediate family health issues that I might be able to prepay off ravello alone for awhile, and am now weighing the options.

 

dont feel inappropriate to message me directly if you are 11.5 barrie/TRU/12TTS and I'll set your info aside. cannot guarantee I'll put anything for sell, but if I do, my SF family gets first dibs before ebay vultures. No disrespect intended if I do not respond immed, my mind is just in another place right now.

 

I'll be MIA from the thread for the bit while I work through some stuff, but will gather PMs and respond accordingly if I deem necessary.

 

take care you guys. everyone be safe please :) shoes mean little in the gran scheme of things, trust me.

kwhitelaw,

 

I think it's fair to say you have the unwavering support of all of us at this forum towards the betterment of your family's health issues.  Material goods are indeed meaningless.

Kwhitelaw,

Sorry to hear about your family, but glad to hear that you are prioritizing properly. Best of luck and hope to hear from you soon.

I laugh a little because these "grail" shoes were hiding in my closet untouched for years.   

Thanks! I do enjoy them very much. Definitely my favorite of my 3 black shell shoes.

Why does re-crafting at Alden take so long? I was quoted 8-10 weeks. 

 

Heck, I can get an entire new engine put in my car within 48 hours, job completed.

^ they may have more shoes to work on than yours

They DO take forever and they're about to raise their prices for a re-craft FYI. They do offer up the new box and shoe trees and shipping both ways. I'm waiting on a pair that arrived at their place on Jan 23rd.

 

One new thing is that they send out a nice fancy color postcard instead of the old school DOS printed card - my address was printed on that postcard and it looked more like a ransom note than an address.

 

I just noticed the 20th is this week - they've been in town for a month now.

 

I'm interested in seeing what my PTB Brooks Brothers in #8 look like. They needed a re-dye & resole for sure and will hopefully be back on my feet by the start of March Madness.

^ They send a free bag of tea now? :lol:

post #73890 of 122416

At first I was like, WTF, Alden sent you a tea sample with your postcard?

 

But now I realize that you put that there to cover your name and address.
