Guess I'll have to wait even longer for my grail shoe. If anyone knows of any place that has these in a 8.5D I would greatly appreciate the help.

I saw a pair of Ravello chukkas at Alden of SF with a dime sized spot on the toe where the dye didn't take. The spot was much lighter than Whiskey. I brought this to the attention of the salesman Robert - the tall fellow who used to be a cobbler - and he said they were OK selling it as a first quality shoe. I thanked him for his time and passed on the pair. He said he was sure someone would buy it.

Just wore these home from Leffot.


Leffot says they're the perfect winter boot. I think a week of NYC winter would destroy these

With all due respect to Steven - while these are wonderful boots (I own a pair from the first order last year), they are like ice skates when it gets cold/wet.

I use these in Boston: http://www.swims.com/#/galoshes

 

Great for your shoes/boots during inclement weather.

From experience, they dont immediately post their inventory to the blog. It usually takes about a week. Stevo said it allowed their regular clients/walk-ins a chance to place their orders. This is especially true with rare shell colors. Usually by the time its posted online, its either sold out and/or sizing is limited

I think you guys are getting me mixed up with someone else. The creased lady calf boots that were posted by another member weren't mine. I think it was NAMOR who asked a question re: LS's return policy, which I answered, as I had recently purchased a different pair of calf boots from LS (Pitt Boots) and had asked Bryan of LSBH about their return policy, which was a question he was slightly rude in responding to.

Anyway, I wouldn't try to return shoes that were even slightly creased up, and do agree that the lady calf boots that were posted shouldn't be on the table for return. satisfied.gif

On a different note, I really wish that there were more (actually, any) Alden's posted on B&S in my size. I always see such great deals and end up disappointed since they're usually larger than my shoe size (9.5). Saw some worn-once Alden x J. Crew Color 8 captoes going for a great price, but unfortunately, a size too large.
