It's from TSM irregular list. looks like it's a modified last, color 8 boot.

Or, if you're negligent and careless like me, you drop shoes off at a FedEx drop-off location in a business building (hence not get receipt confirmation), and realize 2 weeks later (waiting to get the credit) that the package was never picked up! Hence my shoe size experiment cost me $317.00.
I wonder after almost 2 months if I can stil file a stolen property report with the police...
Sorry, I can't really comment on what Aldens are coming. You can try emailing Spencer and see if he knows anything that might be arriving soon.
Rest assured that there are A LOT styles in the works for the next year or so!
Does anyone have suggestions for shell care and polishing? High gloss? I was told I can do a spit shine using plain old Kiwi wax/polish (i.e. cordovan color for my color 8 LWB). I thought I had read before that you shouldn't use regular shoe polish on shells. I was also told that the Alden paste wax is really more of a cream and couldn't be used with a spit shine because of its texture. Any thoughts? thanks...

I'm not sure it's due to the Kudu. Frankly, I think the Barrie lasted Alden Chukka is one of the shoes with the worst broken in looks around. Some of the shell models that people post on here look absolutely horrible with huge waves from just behind the toe stiffener all the way up to the middle of the vamp.
I like shell, and its ripples, but that looks terrible IMO.
