I know. I could have made a profit considering the rarity of Color4.

Seriously. I need better friends!

Thanks all for your thoughts, I will make more of an issue of this with the store. If they had told me when I purchased the boots 2 weeks ago, I would have wondered why I had a credit, but no big deal. However, their failure to inform me of the credit, if I hadn't asked my friend about the shoes last night, I wouldn't have had a reason to inquire, I still wouldn't know. They have the shoes back in stock, and my money. Nice deal for them I guess.

Thank you for this! I was fortunate to grab the last size 9 of the 975s, not every day you see those at 25% off.

Gaaah, too late. If anyone got a 9.5 #975 LWB that doesn't work out, I'll take 'em off your hands.

I really like the pattern on the back of them...

I only wore them momentarily to test their fit. Such a beautiful color, but they definitely have an odd shape in the toe box. Looks like a stinking egg or something.

Whiskey Shortwing Blucher. Aberdeen Last. Harrison Ltd.

And finally, I think this is one of the Alden Kings (to me)... The Ravello Wingtip Boot. Barrie Last. Special narrow size. TheShoeMart.

My older pair of these are now on their way back to me with a fresh sole. I am excited to see how they look as well.

Cheers and happy weekend!

Mike that "banana last" boot probably won't turn out to fit you😃. My 10.5C feet await 😃😃😃😃

Good luck and I hope it doesn't effect the sizing. Any size 9 cigars at risk smile.gif

Have a great thanksgiving

 

Thanks Duck, I believe that they are full sole but the I could be wrong. I did specify that I owned many pairs of shoes without removable insole and had requested the slimmest version possible that they could do. I bought some half insole Powersteps while I waited and I have had some decent luck with the fitting in most my shoes but the toe area concerns me. I am also a bit worried about a few bals that I own as they will probably be the one I notice them in the most.

 

My fav pair, the Leffot Tanker, fits me pretty sung though I have only worn it a handful of times since getting them so they probably have some room to spare once things break in. I am really hoping they won't be painfully tight with the insole.

 

And no size 9s, possibly some 7.5D  Aldens or some 8-8.5D AE though that may end up in the market.

Happy that fellow Alden fans scored.  Put some pics up when they arrive.
