***The official Alden thread *** - Page 5980
They do look great. I saw them as well but figured this was more unicorn ish!
I have also bought from the seller, they are top notch.
I'm still amazed by how much used boots go for, especially when there are a couple confirmed Ravello WT boots that should be arriving any time now. I hope you guys are able to find your way into one of those pairs.
Sorry, we neglected to mention the boots in question were brand new.
I am on a list for the Ravello NST but not the wingtip. If you know of one open shoot a brother a pm!
I am on the list for the version with all eyelets and double leather soles
That clears up the confusion. I know of nothing that's open and, sadly, I'm not on any of the closed ones either.
Both ShoeMart and Alden NY have a run in production and both runs were full when they were submitted to the factory. The Alden NY run has a Commando sole, which is pretty cool.
I did know about the NYC makeup, unfortunately it was already full when I called. They offered me a conciliatory spot on the Ravello LWB though.. (which I passed on).
Yeah, it's kinda surprising. Even more surprising is my own fleeting desire to jump in on such auctions :D
