It left a bad taste in my mouth concerning Leffot. I'm not saying that I will never buy anything from Leffot but I haven't bought anything from them since this happened. I can accept that it was an honest mixup but seeing these makes me which I could have scored a pair.
That's disappointing. I missed out on leffot's cigar atoms because of a website stock error. I paid the night they were released, got a call the next business day because they had oversold my size due to tech problems....

I have never mentioned my participation on this thread to any retailer. mike from ep knows I'm mrdv, only because he's an active sf member as well.

You can probably count us all in.

Truth. 

 

Honestly I don't see any incentive for Alden to take requests at all. Shell that's not black/#8 sells out in a matter of hours.

Heck, shell that is #8 sells out in hours. See Leffot Tankers.

Black PTBs on top of the "official doctors' office floor" seen nearly everywhere!

I should've done Whiskey Wednesday looking at those awesome LHS from @Burzan

Yes, I feel that everyone has suddenly had their hopes resparked by the recent delivery of a number of exotics. Let's not forget the oft-rehashed shell shortage and the fact that Alden's delivery times are often, even frequently delayed.

Wise advice.

A great shoe in its own right, and very useful.

This is very ture. I asked Kathy when she thought those Indy's would even be acknowledged by the factory. She just shrugged her shoulders. She said it's tough to say if and when models get confirmed. She said that sometimes she's get an immediate response, sometimes the factory simply says no to production, and other times she'll hear nothing at all once the order is submitted.

I think that if too many "special" orders are submitted then the shop spreads itself thin and nothing gets produced quickly. In other words, I think we (and Kathy) need to focus on one special makeup at a time. Once the Indy boot is produced, then discussions can happen for another model. All that being said, I would love to have either ravello or whiskey cap toe boots. I just think it's aiming a little high.

And special make-ups in black don't even take that long.
