does anyone know if there is anything in color #4 coming up anywhere anytime soon? Just got my whiskey LWBs and Ravello LWBs...

^^^^^Damn those or beautiful saddles. Wish I was a frequent shopper (i'm workin on it) at LS to get the inside scoop regarding all the new make-ups that are available before the rest of the public knows about them. Being an 11.5 I miss the boat on some beautiful shoes a lot of the time . I check that page everyday now ha ha.

Nice work Tom and the rest of the crew at Leather Soul.

Very few are made in that color Rob. The last batch LS got was all presold before they hit the store. It seems almost impossible to get that color unless you get in good with Tom at LS.

before those #4 PTB's Tom sold, when was the last time anyone had ever seen #4 on an Alden, or anywhere for that matter? wasn't that more of a "one off" than anything else? edit: I do see that Ron Rider has made up some...and he does often work with lesser known shell colors

Thanks, do you have a photo?

I'm still reading about the different lasts and whatnot. I don't really understand too much about why this or that last is better or worse, other than potential fit of the shoe vs my foot shape. Nor do I understand how people get the same shoe, but on different lasts. But I guess that's how Alden does things.

I really need to go to a local store and check them out. Sherman Brothers is local to me, so I will try them out.

Lakota in Japan offered three styles in that color last summer, as the company's 10th anniversary special models. http://www.styleforum.net/showthread.php?t=198401

Nice Boots Cimabue! Are those The Shoe Mart boots?
post #8770 of 122416
Yes, Shoe Mart. Couldn't be happier. The worry about reddish-orange shell is unfounded. Medium brown with slight orange undertints. Perfect.

Go Alden!

random found this pic, labeled "ravello and mahogony lhs"

what do you guys think of LHS in these lighter colors?

these are great summer shoes, but since I wear a lot of khakis in summer...not ideal?

post #8772 of 122416
makewayhomer, I've got the LHS in whiskey. I really wanted them in cigar, but Shoemart had a pair of irregular whiskey loafers in my size that I couldn't pass up. I think the lighter colors are great, but pair best with blue or grey trousers. Khaki kind of washes them out.

Yup, just so everyone who is on the fence can compare, this is a reddish/orange boot (Grenson Christian in Honey hi-shine calf) vs. Shoemart Ravello Boot:
