I actually asked Ed at TSM that exact question almost verbatum, and didnt get a real answer... 

He basically said "There weren't that many..."

I also wondered if they were new old stock (seconds).

My God, you guys have seriously brought it today with the King LWBs, the absoluely gorgeous ravello NST, king cap toe boots, etc... there is some serious game possessed by this thread, esp when you throw in the watch collections!

 

Today I went with what has become one of my favorite go-to casual shoes, Snuff LWBs + J Crew argyles.  (However, I am itching to wear some shell this weekend... this thread is inspiring!)

Thanks for the picture. Your shoes are awesome. I hope everyone (including myself) gets what they ordered.

The coding on the inside is as follows:

 

0F0 / 023 8

 

22141

 

Bootmaker Edition is written on the heel cup

I ordered a pair Saturday am. I spoke to joe, he said they were a special makeup for the shoemart. What he didn't say, but I'm now guessing is, these are old dead stock. They received a few odds and ends exotics sizes 10 +. I hope mine look as good as atlvol's. smile.gif

Makes sense and also inline with the "bootmaker edition" posted above.

The fact that these are likely NOS, along with the awesome price, caved in my resolve today. I ordered a pair of Whiskey PTBs and can't wait to see what they're like. I skipped the Whiskey NSTs because, for some reason, they just don't do it for me. Those Ravello NSTs, though ....

The majority of these rare color shells were models offered by TSM and removed from website since they only had a few pairs left. I think in most cases they are 1st quality and a very good deal. Congrats to those who scored! Ido feel this is another sign that rare colors will be scare for the foreseeable future from Alden.

See Ya,
Steve

Holy cow, just got off the phone with Joe in Norwalk (TSM).  Just snagged the last Ravello NST!!  Joe says there is a Whiskey PTB in 10.5D, Whiskey NST in 10E (barrie), and a cigar cap toe bal 10.5D (hampton).  It took every bit of will power not to buy the Cigar also!

 

Who was it that said buy now and deal with the consequences later? Namor or Bakes?  You couldn't have been more correct.  I had been on the fence about the RL Lindrick and Gianni for $705 shipped with tax included.  I saw AltVol's NST pics and thought, I would much rather have those than the Lindrick/Gianni (I would wear them much more often).  Called Joe and what do ya know... $460 shipped and should arrive by next weekend.  What a deal!

 

I finally found them Uncle!  Pics to come later...

ps Thank you AltVol for the your timely, inspiring pics!!   DonL, you are an inspiration also with those same shells!  :cheers:

^ Congrats! That's awesome. Cannot beat that price either. Good for TSM - they could have definitely made more money if they'd wanted to.
