I am emailing from TheShoeMart regarding your recent order for the
Alden Men's Leisure Handsewn Shell Cordovan Cigar Shell (style #

weekend in which case the system "confused" the Shell Cordovan version
of this item with the Calfskin version. However, this particular model
actually isn't made in Calfskin, and we do not have the Shell Cordovan
version in stock. Therefore, your order has been cancelled, and you
were never charged for it. We do apologize for the inconvenience. If
you have any questions, please let us know. Thank you very much.

I am so disappointed that some people got theirs and I didn't especially since I ordered really early too frown.giffrown.giffrown.gif

well I noticed that after I ordered a pair that the stock available did not update thus some may receive while others miss out.


Also a tracking number does not mean much until after it actually leaves the store. If shoemart ships any at all I will be surprised.

ANyone jump on those summer Frans Boone pre-orders from their web site (you know the ones that needed to be ordered by 7/23). They are so nice, and I'm a little sad I didn't see them until late August (though my wife and wallet are not...)

Got a paypal refund but no email saying why (obviously I know why). Oh well...

I bought these very boots and returned them, primarily due to the sole.
It feels a bit squishy (and not in that sure footed squishy way the crepe feels)
it just felt too light and not well suited to a boot.

I've tried on the navy red brick sole Indys... Comfort and support are subjective, but as zazaza said, the boot is very light. They feel more like boots on single flex soles, and maybe even a bit lighter than that

My new 403s, 5 days old.  Driven 700 miles, walked a few more.  Hastily laced.  They seem to be a pretty good fit so far if not a smidge high in the arch for my flat feet - just need to take it slow with them from here on out.

Additional photos here, if you'd like to see a few more.

I received a tracking number, but as the ShoeMart email said, "even though a FedEx tracking # was generated for this order, we do not physically have this item in stock, so your order has been cancelled and credited." I knew it was too good to be true.

Always great to see some Indy porn. Great character already - enjoy wearing in good health

Had a pair of these years ago and got rid of them because I just never wore them thanks to their fleshy/putty color. The whiskey on this pair is fairly dark, so I thought I'd try again. The shell has a shine and depth of color that is truly drool.gif-worthy. The photos were taken under fluorescent lighting and are an accurate depiction of their color.

For my very first post......
I call bullshit on the shoemart.
They have the cigars.
They packed and boxed the shoes, that's why I received a tracking number HOURS ago.
It took them a while to figure out a nice way to say, oooops we made a $200 mistake per shoe, and by the way, we're not going to honor your order.
In a way I don't blame them. I hate making mistakes in my eBay listings, and then having to pay for return shipping, offer refunds, etc. I guess I do have to be responsible for my mistakes when selling online, but a company like the shoemart does not.
Allen Edmonds made a similar mistake "glitch" on a shell pair earlier this year, they sold a ton of shells at a huge discount. I didnt buy a pair because i didnt like the shoe. From what i read, AE did honor and ship every one of those transactions.
I am bitter today, I'll feel better when I place my next order.

seriously dude, get over it. they made a pricing mistake, they caught it, they fixed it. if it weren't for SF, they would have fixed the pricing mistake on the website before anyone was the wiser. they don't owe you anything. unless they have chosen to keep your money, you're not out ANYTHING. all the rest is just musicboohoo[1].gif

Should really be a matter of you snooze you lose on the Shoe Marts part. we can only speculate whether or not they have the shoes...
