Jeans? Earth-tone pants? Shorts even? Take those dogs out for a walk! biggrin.gif

Unlined snuff suede loafer, bought from Leffot
- These are my first van loafers. I have a high instep, and the vamp normally puts way too much pressure on my foot. These shoes are snug, but the fact that they are unlined and suede allows me to wear them - I still can't wear this same shoe in cordovan. I walked out of the store with these on my feet

I spoke with Steven at Leffot again yesterday - he said that both ravello and whiskey are in very short supply. He is waiting for several makeups (day tripper, longwing reorder, PTBs on commando). He said that Alden mentioned that several smaller retailers have been waiting for two years for ravello makeups.

I asked him how Alden prioritized retailers - he said he didn't really know, but there likely is some kind of pecking order.

I didn't discuss it in detail with the guys at Alden on Madison, but I did put my name in for a whiskey PTB - they mentioned about a 6 month waiting time. Alden on Madison does have shortages but it does seem they do get somewhat of a consistent resupply of stock rare cordovan models

Based on the pic below, and what I'm feeling on my feet, the Barrie has a wider heel relative to the ball than the Trubalance.

I've got a new pair of shell PTBs on the Barrie that feel great with thinner (i.e. certainly not thin) socks in the ball of the shoe but very loose side to side (not so much lengthwise) in the heel. With thicker socks (Wigwam hikers) the shoe feels decent overall, but the ball is just a bit on the tight side and the heel remains a tad loose.
Should I expect the shoe to conform better to my feet as the soles and the leather break in? I guess my next remedies will be some tongue pads and / or insoles. Any suggestions?

 

The Barrie at least seemed considerably wider than the Trubalance in the various pairs I have tried on.  I figure that's ok in boots but just about nothing else.  Are there any PTBs out there that aren't on the Barrie?

I know it has probably been asked several times, but does anyone know a good source for replacement Indy boot laces?
