It's weird, longwings with flat welt seem rather rare, now that I've been looking for them.

Did you get oboy_oboy's pair from Leffot? Or is it another pair?

For some reason Alden decided to do that w/ the larger sizes (mine were a 10, so I don't know where they started making the distinction). It's our fault, and if you want to return for either credit or a full refund, you're welcome to." So, I thought about it, and then I returned (they were unworn and only tried on carpet). They were super helpful and even paid for the shipping back to them, along w/ refunding my *original* shipping. I will give them business again, for sure.
I do know they are planning to receive a Ravello LWB w/ double waterlock sole soon. Some sizes are reserved, buy if anyone is serious call and ask about availability. Colin also told me they will reorder the #8 w/ antique edge (and the natural CXL) but won't get the stock until next fall/winter. I asked about LWBs w/ that sole, since I either want that or commando for the NW.

I wonder if I have your pair. smile.gif Mine are size 10 as well.

My experience with Leffot has been great from the start. The difference in the welt is an odd anomaly that most probably wouldn't notice or mind... I really like the Color 8 and antique edge. Perhaps this welt problem shouldn't be such a problem. wink.gif

Sigh, white boy problems. wink.gif

Don't know. They appeared unworn when I got them.

They're essentially unworn now (only tried on on carpet a few times).

What is your experience with shell seconds?  your worst stories would be appreciated - that way i can stop buying shoes!

 

thanks


After reading that seconds were primarily minor cosmetic defects, I purchased a pair of black shell ptb 9901s irregulars.  When I received them, on the outside of each shoe in each arch area, there was an oblong, half moon shaped piece of something, maybe leather glued onto each shoe.  Looked almost like a piece of black electrical tape, with some kind of adhesive visible.  Needless to say, they were more irregular than I expected and were promptly returned.

Love the CXL. Waiting on the Roy CXL boot myself.

The flat welt looks much sleeker to me in the pic. Thanks for posting that.
