What what whaaaaat.....could this mean some other Ravello pre-orders will finally be fulfilled? One can only hope.

Not sure quite how the system works, but my understanding is that all sellers are provided an allotment of the available resources. Guess it was their turn. Not sure if that means others have an allotment available to them per se.

Man there are some killer shell boots and LWBs posted today.  Have been swamped ALL day and came to find 63 unread posts! Tough to keep up.  Your pics are looking phenomenal today, especially Sazon and those color 8 Naval Boots!! :nodding:

 

A little embarrassed to show off some Alden calf, but that's what I've sported today... (my second pair of Aldens from a few years back; they make for a nice beater/rainy day shoe)

Hope everyone enjoyed their Monday...

The happiness that spreads through the thread when preorders start to arrive is pretty cool

Repp,

Those are some nice looking gunboats and I would not be embarrassed to show those fine pieces of Alden craftsmenship anywhere. We here have way too much shell and should be posting more calf, but I do think most people get Alden's due to their far superior treatment of shell.

Enjoy your boats!

-Mike

Yes, however, the exponentially growing frustration for 2 years of waiting for tan Suede LWBs, a la Leather Sole is depressing!  Sorry Beatleguese  :stirpot:

So many great Alden shell boots today, particularly #8. I like the idea of a thread with just photos. 100% uninterrupted alden shell nirvana

Haha. I like the idea. Not sure that I can afford it though. :-)

Do they have a website? I can't find anything on them.

They are tied to the factory, aldenshoes.com. They don't have a separate site. Good luck!

For all those salivating over the Ravello LWBs, just be advised that I was told they were getting only 2 pairs in each size.  There is a list with numerous alternate takers in case one of the first two backs out.  In other words, chances are slim.  Full disclosure -- I am on that list, but my prospects are not so great (no call for me today).  Just thought I'd share that.  I expect their phones will ring off the hook all day tomorrow.

 

Also get the sense they are not going to hand these out to people who have never been in there before -- but I could be wrong on that.
