Do it! I really enjoy wearing these.
I would really like a brown CXL boot, but I don't want an Indy and I think the only other boot I've seen, from Alden, was a plain toe which I'm not super in to.

Thanks, Ryden. I did come across them at some point, but as usual they don't have anything. I was hoping for something I could actually buy! haha. I'll have to talk to Takuya. I still have a deposit on their Ultimate Indy, but maybe I'll switch to the NST if they will be doing another run.

I know we sort of complain the rareness of shell...but imagine if Alden told us we couldn't resell our shoes on eBay...

How crazy is that?

You could get on a preorder at Moulded for a brown CXL WT boot but it's on the Modified last. I actually would like a brown CXL PT boot. I'm not crazy about the Roy boot, though.

A WT boot would be bad ass. I have no experience with the modified. I would really like a brown CXL perf. captoe. That would be nice.

Thanks, Be. I typically can't wear denim to work, but we get away with it in bad snow storms for some reason. I'll take it! Seemed like a good pairing.

Not very capitalistic, but I like that policy. I think it is scummy when people go and buy a bunch of clothes that have limited availability with the intention of reselling them for a profit.  Get a real job that actually adds value to society.

IIRC, Alden Madison has a perforated captoe boot in brown cxl. Alden SF has wt boots in brown cxl, double leather sole. And finally, Adam at AofCarmel has a preorder for a brown cxl wingtip boot on commando.

 

Also, you could also look into Viberg, who has a preorder for a similar boot via Leffot. Their 2030 last sizes the same way a Barrie does.

 

Brown cxl rant over. I'm still processing how I held myself together with brown boot purchases while awaiting the cigar shell ct grant boot to come in.

 

Happy hunting!

Thanks, Doc. Looks like I have some research to do. Gotta move some boots, first.

Edit: You're right, Doc. All those brown CXL boots are available. The wingtip isn't in stock in my size. It's funny because whenever I visit either of those sites I go directly to the shell cordovan page, haha. I've been missing out on a lot of cool makeups! LOL

My pleasure tifosi. Definitely a good combo. I for one am not going to waste all the excellent detective work Doc has been doing on CXL availability.
