I finally got my 403s, but I'm still waiting on my 405s. I couldn't be happier with these.

No, I got these in the spring (I believe it was March or April)

The only CXL tankers I have seen were at Leather Soul. I did inquire about them, but I believe they are sold out. Shoot them an email.

For what it's worth, I just called Leffot to ask about the Day Tripper pre-order from May 2012.  His reply: "Don't hold your breath."  It'll be worth the wait in the end, but I'm just so jealous of those sporting ravello boots.

A question about Alden's repair service.

I'm considering the purchase of a pair of #8 LWBs or Shortwings with Commando soles.

Does anyone know whether Alden will resolve them with a different sole if down the road I decide I don't like the Commando on these shoes?

I have a PT boot with Commandos, but obviously this sole would be more limiting in the range of the shoes. I live in an area that receives a fair amount of snow and cold weather so the Commando sole is nice for those conditions.

Any comments on the choice of a long wing vs. short wing with the Commando sole?

Any answers, comments are appreciated, Thanks!

All accounts I've read over the past few years say that Alden will only resole with what was originally on the shoe/boot. They used to be more willing to change, but no longer.

FWIW, while I understand the desire to have work done by the company that originally made the shoe, there are plenty of capable cobblers that would be willing to accommodate your requests and often at a much better price. B. Nelson in NYC is the one that gets recommended here most often and if you are near a different major metro area, I'm sure there are other good options.

For the question of shortwings or longwings on commando soles... I don't have either on commando (FWIW, I do have LWBs on Dannite, crepe, and red brick rubber though) but would definitely wear longwings on them. For some reason the thought of a shortwing on commando just doesn't sound good to me, although when you're actually wearing it, if it's a low enough profile sole, nobody would probably ever notice.
