I finally got some Renovateur on these guys and they look even better than before. There's a slight tear in the shell at the penny slot but that just givesbthe she character. Would any of you guys see if Alden would repair that? I doubt its worth my time - plus like I said they have character.

When I was on the phone with Alden DC last week I think she mentioned they had at least one of the cigar boots still in stock, but she said it was an E width so I didn't have her confirm availability.

Sorry, no.
We were brainstorming after she confirmed the Ravello LWB wasn't going to be available for me. As soon as I heard "E" I declined and we moved on.

Speaking of blue shortwings:







and some Marble Indys, both eBay snags

can Alden Restoration fix holes in linings?

^ Yes

I would love to watch them fix that. I make holsters. It's very crude compared to shoe making.

They would just patch it by putting another piece of leather on top of it.  Wouldn't they?

nice pair of LHS, TT. Rich looking color. Frankly I'm a bit envious whenever i see these posted. I just can't get a decent fit with the Van last. It fits okay as a lace up (like the Rangers I posted earlier) but with the LHS, not so great (although I have a suede pair that looks great and fits okay because I sized down .5).

Thanks CEE88! I'm finding the Van Last fits me better than the Barrie.

I haven't received a seconds list since October of 2012.

what size you need? i think i can dig up 11.5 and 12d. but at this point, it's likely pilfered.. better to just call them.

 

possible your email is dropping their emails into spam folder

TT, that's all that really matters, right? Aesthetics is one thing, but if a last works for your feet, then you go with it. A couple of years ago I got a beautiful pair of BB unlined color 8 LHS on a hefty discount (like, 30 or 35% off? maybe for getting a BB credit card - I can't recall). I stewed about those shoes for a week. The heel area was just too wide (so with each step I took my heel slipped out) and my arch isn't pronounced enough so the sides buckled too much. Ultimately I packed them up and returned them. Ugh. I do have a suede LHS but it's a full size down from my "TTS" so it's a bit short but it feels comfortable.

The Van last lace up Rangers actually work well -- reduces/eliminsates the heel slippage, feels secure across the arch, and I like the look of them.

Good luck with the repair if you choose to go ahead with it!
