Thank you sir! And yes, I have noticed that purchasing Aldens is an extremely slippery slope!  I couldn't help but buy the Alden for Jcrew captoe #8 with the 30% off and my gift card from last Christmas... But I couldn't be happier investing my money into a quality shoe that will last me a long time.  And none of this would have been possibly without the knowledge and advice from this thread.

More than 2, but one in Whiskey Shell.

AofSF said they have cigar indy's on the barrie (yes, I found that unusual as well). Give them a call.

So who has any experience with the Alden Water-Lock Double Sole shoes.  Specifically, how do they ride relative to the normal double oak leather soles on the LWB.  I've had the Flex Welt on some unlined single sole Chukka's and did not care for it at all, very sloppy feel without much support.  I have lousy feet from eons of competitive running and need mucho stiff support as is offered in the Alden Double Leather line.  Reviews please... thanks...

^ A double waterlock sole is indistinguishable from Alden's regular double sole, at least in my experience.

My recent J Crew sale snags are still just sitting out there. Others have said they honor the mistake, but I won't believe they went through until I get a shipping notice. I'm dubious because I've had them call and renege on items in the past.

I think you'll get them.

Little do the JCrew website administrators know that there is an online community of hundreds, if not thousands of us who monitor the primary and secondary market for Aldens daily, looking for mispricing opportunities, like hedge funds and arbitrageurs do in the capital markets.

Mine shipped this morning, so I think they're honoring the orders.
