post #36991 of 90153
Hi, need help/advise. I have been searching high and low for a pair of Alden in either Ravello or Whiskey for either a NST or Captoe boots for almost 6 months now. Have tried TSM and was told that they r out of stock m they do nt ship overseas(i stay outside US) for Alden shoes. I can't even pre order one.
Tried LS and it seems like their shells r only reserved for their VIP. Tried Leffot n they dont take preorder for these as well. Is there any more options for me?

Styles mentioned in this thread:

You are probably out of luck, particularly given the scarcity of whiskey and ravello.

I think ravello PTBs for me, which is why I own them. Or, by grail, do you mean they have to be nearly unattainable?

has always been the "Thor" boot from my avatar.

 

 

 

As far as virtually unattainable: Ravello LHS with single leather sole and antique edge trim.  Could also wear a Mahogany or #4 LHS.

 

Maybe also an exotic shell boot like a Ravello or Whiskey PT Boot on Barrie, all eyelets, leather sole, antique edge trim.

 

 

 

For anyone who might own some: IRL is mahogany distinguishably different from cigar? or is the difference hard to discern?

I don't own them, but TheWGP posted some pics of the entire rainbow of LHS, including mahogany (which looks like ravello):

Thanks for the Pic.

 

That is quite an achievement!

 

When did they stop making Mahogany, if anyone knows?

I don't mean unattainable, just your most coveted Alden shoe.  I'm sure scarcity in and of itself does cause some level of attractiveness, however.

 

I do have Ravello PTBs, which I love btw...

Try
http://www.shoesandshirts.nl/shoes/alden

or Anatomica Paris

Shoes & Shirts has a great lineup but they refuse to ship to US, otherwise it'd be like $586 before shipping a pair eek.gif

Gotcha, then my answer stands with the ravello PTB. A #4 barrie last NST boot with all eyelets, antique edging, and commando sole sounds pretty sexy, however.

These are my favorite Aldens: Whiskey and mahogany saddle Norwegians. Alden AF1 (The first "fan" shoe from Alden of Carmel.)

Kudu Ultimate Indy on the Modified Last

 

Holy Grail (and coincidentally unattainable)
