Took a long time to get through to TSM, but alas the few shoes I was going for were sold.  There was a lot of good stuff out there - hope some people here got what they wanted!

I can't compete with the top customers and celebrities like Steven Yuen...hope he's not my size.

can you elaborate what does Steven has to do with this? Is he a big Alden fan?

Hi

I am TTS 9 d and wear a 8.5 d in Barrie in CXL ( 6 eye chukka) and TB. I had a few 8.5d in shoes ( non cxl) and found them a little tight. 8.5 in TB suede indys fit great. So my guess is you could perhaps go 8 in TB and Barrie in CXL but I'd recommend 8.5 and buy should that you can return or resell easily while you narrow down the sizing


hope this help and others may have a different experience

good luck

Thoughts on these?  Model number  FD-45407H on the Shoe Mart seconds list?

Oh well, I'm glad they have a nice home!

Congrats on the Whiskey. I luckily found my size and due for delivery tomorrow as well...


Best,

I ordered a pair of these as a Xmas gift for a loved one. Hope there is nothing seriously wrong with the 2nds, and I hope I got the sizing right.

Man, trying to order something when these lists come out is a nightmare. Finally got through after about 3 hours and snagged the #8 perf cap boots in 11D.

Unfortunately, after 30 minutes on the phone they were already gone. I merely was the first to ask for a PM if (god willing) they don't work out for whomever was lucky enough to snag 'em! ;)

I have no proof of this...but I suspect that many of the rare shoes/boots on the TSM seconds list get sold in the store the day they become available.  If I lived near the store I would stop in all the time to try and find out when the next seconds list will start and be there the morning it starts.  In regards to some getting the list earlier than others I would imagine the email list is staggering in length.  It likely takes a long time for the lists to get emailed out, and likely goes out by size from small to large.  It's disappointing to place an order and have it cancelled, but this really is a crap shoot; specially for shell in rarer colors.  Hopefully some of the forum members snagged some good ones today...and actually get them!  I've experienced the thrill of the win and the agony of the defeat severals times on this list!

 

 

See Ya,

Steve
