Sorry I didn't see your post. Here's the truth. It's because from a business standpoint it makes sense to only order Ds. I know it's frustrating. I take an E or EE and sometimes I open a box of new shoes and I'm like, "DAMN, why didn't I order an E for myself?!?!" If you contact us and the timing is right we'd be happy to add your size to our order. As we grow though it gets harder and harder to accommodate. I wish I could order every size for every person but it's impossible. We've been trying to have preorders...we're up to #20 so far. We haven't had one in a couple months because the backlog at the factory is immense and we're just too busy in store to organize a preorder. It's also very difficult for us because not everyone is happy with a 6-12 month wait. Some people expect special ordered shoes in 2-4 months but that is impossible for us. All I can say is check back to the website, we'll try to have one every month or two from January going forward, or shoot me an email from time to time to see what I'm ordering next.
Totally understandable re: ordering D width only. That's why, as odd-size-wearing Alden-lovers, we have to plan ahead as best as possible and be willing to wait for what we want - if we don't want to compromise and spend huge bucks on whatever does happen to be available.
Plus, we must be willing to be persistent, hunt around & spend our money wherever we can find our size, and not be fiercely loyal to any one retailer (as much as we may like working with certain ones). That's why I own Alden shoes from Leather Soul, Alden D.C., Alden NYC, Alden San Fran, Alden-of-Carmel, Shoemart, Brooks Brothers and have one on order from Leffot. It's business on both ends.
