Why so secretive, Alcibiades?

having #4 is like having the ring of power. you want to show it off but also want to horde it and keep it to yourself

That is totally fair...Thanks.

For those who are a 10 or 10.5, Steven is sold out. Just heard back from him with the quickness. Didn't need to spend $700+ during the holidays for myself anyways. Ha.

Leffot Day Tripper, Leffot Atom #4, Unionmade Beale Cordovan Cigar, All Eyelet Cigar Indy Alden NYC.

These are just out of the boxes so nothing is cleaned or polished.  Like a kid in a candy store here.

Thanks to Steve for making my trip to NYC memorable, and showing me the Unicorn of shell.

Also thanks for all the posts from Mac and everyone else for getting me interested in shell from Alden.

Wow, those Beales look much better in your photo than they do on Unionmade's site. Cigar is a hard color to photograph.

The Cigar Indy looks awesome too.

Outstanding haul.

And just when you were salivating over the #4, here comes Gaga with the pebble grain shell and a few two-tones thrown in for good measure. Gaga rocks.icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

Gaga - what size are you? Not that I'm thinking of booking a flight to Narita, breaking into your house and stealing your shoes. Just, you know, for informational purposes...

My two ravellos are thrown in for comparison. Color 4 is darker and a bit redder.

Somebody please hurry up an buy my Ravello LWB so I'll have money when I call Steven tomorrow.

Leighlon, those cigar indy's are awesome! Just to confirm, this was at the Alden NYC store?
post #19016 of 79300
I'm about to make another shell purchase but I'm having a hard time deciding what to get.

1. Color 4 wingtip from Leffot. I really don't need this shoe and it's a long shot that he'll have my size but I know how rare #4 is.

2. Cigar Indy from NYC store - again they may not have my size.

3. #8 indy from shoemart. I'm leaning toward this one.

4. Carmina double monk from Epaulet.

you should also consider a whisky loafer or some black balmoral boots

I need me some Black boots, too many browns.

You guys are all Alden crazies. Taking into account L.A. warmer weather, looking for a good year round boot. Which do you prefer, or can you reccomend me a different, simple black boot?

MY ATOM #4'S...Some may say it's the unicorn shell but I will say it is more like the "PHOENIX"!!

1288504878_470x353_fire-phoenix.jpg

The phoenix is a mythical bird that is a fire spirit with a colorful plumage and a tail of gold and scarlet. It is said that the bird's cry is that of a beautiful song. I would have to say that these shoes have the ability to bring tears to your eyes. They are ABSOLUTELY STUNNING!! The Phoenix's ability to be reborn from its own ashes implies that it is immortal. These shoes will become legendary themselves!!IMG_1380.jpg
