You can check their individual websites and lmk which model.

By any chance, does anyone have the late January 9.5D seconds list from ShoeMart?  I'm pretty sure the suede bluchers I ordered were listed as Leydon, and I finally googled the production number and learned they are Barrie.  Makes sense--my feet are swimming in them.

 

If you have it, pls send a PM.

Suede Bluchers are essentially always Barrie. Only thing close to them on Leydon is the Suede Chukkas.

Thanks Mike.  After my crash-burn-die episode with NRO (whose website still has a suede blucher on Leydon) I was hoping the seconds pair was perhaps one of their makeups.

Thanks guys. I haven't worn them for a full day yet, which will be the real test of sizing, but I really dig these and want them to work out.

I am also.  "Shoes generally arrive within 12 to 16 weeks of confirmation, however it can be longer."  This past Thursday was 16 weeks from the pre-order date.  

 

  Once confirmed, these are generally on or near schedule, correct?

Neither carry it sadly. Also forgive my ignorance here, but it just occurred to me why would I need a proxy if I can order directly from the sites?

based on your post it seemed like you were outside the US, maybe i am wrong. Anyways people get charged import duties when ordering from online websites and at times the import duty is a lot more expensive then what the item is worth so members on sf proxy stuff for people here and there.

cheers

Ah ok, yeah that is useful. I do live in Canada but I live directly on the border. I usually just order everything to detroit and go across to pick it up. Saves me dealing with canadian shipping as well as import duties most times. Ill definitely keep the offer in mind though. Thanks!

Wow, crazy. Didn't know I was that close!!! It probably took them a week or two to submit it plus don't forget Alden closed the first two weeks of July. :-)

So probably looking at early Sept.

I realize it varies per order and alden isn't very reliable, but i ordered the black indy on commando from leffot in early december 2013 and they came in at the end of july 2014, which was closer to a 30 week duration. it worked out for me because in the meantime i realized i was a much better fit in a 9C versus the 8.5D i ordered. they let me return them and get on the natural cxl pre-order in my proper size, but i'd be surprised if they come in before the new year...

...and they didn't balk at all with me with pre-ordering a C width, i just had to pay in full.
