The seller appears to be Sazon.  Of course, he gave us a heads-up about this a few weeks ago:

Sazon usually does the selling for Uncle Mac.

Those saddles are interesting to say the least. I don't know how to feel about them.

It seems to be the least in-demand of Alden models.

The Leffot saddles sell out pretty quickly. Saddles tend to get a bunch of compliments when I wear them, but I don't wear them that often. They can look sleeker than other Barrie lasted shoes.

I've a pair of the #8/scotch grain from Leffot and love them, I'd add another pair if I found the right pairing say cigair with a black saddle.

i'll be in the need of a new rubber heel on a pair of roy boots soon, i was going to have a local cobbler replace with something. however, i've read/heard that sometimes alden won't do restoration (i'd like to have them do the re-sole when it is time for that) if there has been previous work done to the shoe. although I am assuming this wouldn't apply to something minor like a heel replacement. can anyone speak to this?

My J Crew snuff/#8 saddle is one of my favorite pair of Alden's; I plan to wear them this week. The all #8 saddle is likely my next Alden purchase. I would love to see it done on an antique edge but I doubt that will happen considering I have been asking Leffot for close to two years to run a #8 LHS with antique edge trim.

I thought I'd crowdsource what I should do with my ranger mocs on crepe. I picked them up from Need Supply at the beginning of the year for less than $300 and use it as a beater shoe. I was never a fan of the crepe sole but the plan going in was to resole via B.Nelson at some point anyway.

Since I feel the crepe sole makes the shoe heavier, I want to replace with a sole that will make the shoe lighter but can still be worn in all conditions for California (e.g. rain, sockless during summer, etc).

So this is what I'm considering:
  1. Keep the crepe sole
  2. Resole with a waterlock sole
  3. Resole with a dainite sole
  4. Resole with a ridgeway sole, if available

Thoughts?
