Just heard back from Colin @ Leffot - he said that they currently have no plans to reorder these specific navy suede LWBs after this current run sells out, but if they do it will most likely be sometime next year. And, he can put my e-mail on file and let me know if they do end up restocking this shoe, and if they do then I will be able to put my pre-order in and get my size. It seems like a pretty popular shoe that is usually offered every year, so it would make sense that they would restock it again next year. I'll follow up with them again in a few months or so to see if their plans change at all and if I would still be able to pre-order my size in the event that they do reorder these.
I wish more shops could offer pre-orders, mainly because Alden won't accept one-off MTO's anymore. Which means that if you have an odd size that isn't normally stocked, then you're SOL. I'm sure there are issues that these shops have to deal with in order to set something like this up, but I'm selfish and I want some Aldens that fit me!
This is good news, thanks. I'll reach out to Colin to see if I can get notified as well. I really love this makeup...any of the Alden suede LWBs for that matter. The notion of pre-order didn't seem so bright when I was corresponding with Steve earlier...maybe he's changed his tune?
