I was in 5 shops.

A 12.5 is nowhere to be found.
One was the Naval Boot on the Barrie Last and than i tried a Indy Boot but there was the same Problems.

My hope was to find the right size for Alden ( i have a UK 12 in Edward Green und Crockett&Jones) AND a Cordovan Boot but no Boot and i dont really know my size.

I found a Tanker Cordovan in 12.5 online but there is no Lastg info. So i dont know if i need the 12.5 or the 13 because it maybe is a true size Last.

So tomorow the search will be continue.

Sorry for my bad english

All the Best

Hi Gregor. Out of interest, where did you find a 12.5 Tanker online?

Sazon's ravello and color 4 boot collection is stunning, one of the best in the thread... That begs the question, do we expect any ravello (non chukka) boots this for the rest of this year or even next year? I haven't heard of any.

Alcibiades: coming from a gent like you, with quite an impressive collection, that's quite a compliment. Thank you!

I was daydreaming this morning...wondering if the MTO Ravello Captoe boot SF did via Leffot would ever get produced. That was submitted to Alden two years ago August. We can only keep hope alive!

You can't imagine the sum of money I'd pay to be on that order...

if they (the 12) that was too short.  remember that sometimes going up in width can help.
