Nice shoe, no doubt but really, a 15 minute sell out?

I remember the days when the tanker presale would be up for months!

How would resellers benefit from this?

Can't people just buy the regular version of the LWB in color 8 and just switch out the sole?

It's either there is way less stock or that the hype around alden is unreal right now.

Hardly anyone would consider that

I haven't seen new Alden bluchers go for much higher than $800 on eBay. Some resellers may be marketing directly in Asian to end customers, but the markup can't be that high (couple hundred bucks maybe).

I think there is incredible demand for specific models. I can still go to Alden NYC now and find most color 8 and black stock models in my common size.

The ones I'm wearing are Ralph Lauren. Hoping everyone has a great week!

See Ya,

Glad to see the cigar tones are consistent with the old ones. Congrats!

1. That's not even rare shell.
2. I disagreed last week, but now I think, alden IS cool.

I grabbed a 10D and while I was putting my address I got redirected to the cart and was told that 10D is gone! I thought you get to hold for a minute while you are processing your payment details... plain.gif

Leffot is King right now.

Same for me with the Day Tripper pre-order.  I was late to the game, but they still had my size available for pre-order.  I don't even know what would happen if they offered another run of those for pre-order online.  I would expect a record sell out.

Before we know it, people will be camping out in front of Alden retailers on the eve of custom releases.

post #80802 of 122416

What a bummer - Flying back from Costa Rica to LA and just arrived at Liberia airport with Wifi and the Leffot LWB are sold out ... of course.

 

If any of you have second thoughts on their order for 8.5D, I am your man and will gladly take them.

 

Thanks,

 

Mike

grabbed an 11.5d and then saw the preorder page shifted to sold out. Called them and confirmed I'm on the spreadsheet  :slayer:

 

Now, someone buy something from my sig to help me fund this lol.. Whiskey NST might even be in the mix for sale if Handcuffed doesn't want first dibs.

Alden has jumped the shark

post #80805 of 122416

This is really beyond crazy to me. I can guarantee there are 975's sitting around that have probably been in store for 2+ years. Between the marketing efforts of Leffot and I guess a difference in edge trim, these sell out in like 10 minutes. CRAZY
