NRO seems to have C width chukkas (1339 & 1340) on their site right now, which I'm really tempted to try. As far as I know, those are stock shoes, not normally available in C widths.

Also, I fell victim to the "just didn't get made" scenario recently too - long wing #8 with natural edge. Ordered C width, paid in full in advance, waited 8-9 months and finally noticed the makeup appearing on SF. I contacted the retailer and they asked me to supply them with my receipt, which I did, whereupon I got the sheepish "ah, your order wasn't entered properly."

I highly doubt NRO actually has the C widths in stock.

I hope the retailer said more than "your order wasn't entered properly," considering they had ~$700 of your money locked up for 8+ months.

Indy boots in color 8 with the double waterlock leather sole from a few days ago.  Still kicking around whether the fit is right..... they may be a bit small at 11 B/D:

Thanks RK.  I think I like your darker shade of color 8 better than my 990.  Mine are really cherry-red (oxblood); still like them a lot..

Nice BK!  I was at Alden SF a couple of weeks ago and Tom had on this pair.  His were about 4-5 years old and had a ton of miles on them.  His had developed a killer patina.  He said he may send them in for restoration/resole some time this year.  Not sure I would do the restoration as it may come back in a much darker color.

uh-oh ... you may get a tiny more room when the cork layer compresses, but one should not expect shell to stretch much

Thank you, Gents.

Thanks - that NRO site feels like it's from another Century. I may call them.

As for the LWBs, there was no unequivocal "but we can take care of it!" solution forthcoming so I opted for a refund.
