I also spoke to Kathy once to confirm my name on the list, and she was just as nice as is her reputation here. 

This was why I didn't make a stink back when it happened.  Not trying to get into a pissing match in terms of whether the folks at Retailer X are all horrible or all angels.  YMMV.  I was not pleased.  9 out of 10 might be.  That does not, I think, invalidate my point.

I've probably talked to most if not all of the Alden retailers in the US that regularly get MTO styles. All but 1 was very accommodating with my questions, I wont flame the one that wasnt but most know who that is. I was put on some lists for some shoes I know are coming but I will probably continue to follow up because with no deposit, nothing is guaranteed.

 

Ive never really chimed in on the argument that a retailer should sell exclusive makeups to only certain clients. Really? These are business's. I understand the reasoning to continue to throw rare shoes at these clients but I could provide way more counterpoints to this approach than its even worth. It seems more like a battle of who can spend more money than an actual argument over loyalty to the business.

 

Nonetheless, Ive been very pleased with all of my shoe buying experiences.

That's them!  Thanks for the hook up.

 

These will have to do until I can get some #4, #2, whiskey, ravello, any color option out there in a Shell boot.  I'll call DC and try and get on a list.

You are looking for the 4060. It's all eyelets on a double leather sole on the Grant last. I think TheShoeMart and CitiShoes stock it.

Alden NYC sells it as well. They get black and color 8 pretty regularly in this model.

Those boots are awesome but I'm kind of amused bc, in that light, they sure do look a lot like they could be #8! No offense intended!
