I hear ya (and appreciate the feedback). just seems crazy that we (alden pursuers) will sometimes keep products that have defects that other companies would not release as first quality. this particular pair, although marked down, were described as being sold as firsts.. no markings on them to confirm (from alden?) stating seconds quality, but if I documented the other 'issues' they have, I'd imagine most companies in the +$700 range would mark as seconds..
all water under the bridge now, and I appreciate everyones feedback.. NOW, if I can just get TSM to call me back on my return of the ravello NSTs they received 2 days ago per USPS... I just want my $450 back so I can buy something else!
* if someone is Alden TTS 11.5D, I just sent back some ravello NST shoes. had some tiger striping on one side that I didn't care for, but more importantly, they were sold as being on the Barrie last, making think 11.5 would work. turns out they are on Aberdeen (11.5D), and I'd have needed 12D, so these went back..
if they might fit you, call George or Joe asap at the Norwalk store 203-853-6543 and see if you can grab them. Tell them kwhitelaw from virginia sent them back on tuesday and they're floating around somewhere in the warehouse
happy hunting everyone! enjoy your weekend!
