No. Alden's lasts are combination lasts. The heel is a B and the forefoot is a D.

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.

Those are really tempting, except for the idea of a bidding war.

 

No doubt.....a ravello wingtip boot I was following just sold for $925.

Don't remind me.. I bid over $900 ten seconds too early. Earlier in the day I was committed to $1k then saw they were at 700, figured I was safe.. censored.gif

Oh well.. not meant to be!

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!

That clears up the confusion.  I know of nothing that's open and, sadly, I'm not on any of the closed ones either.

Yes, but the soles of those Ravello boots on the 'Bay looked a little janky to me.  Not worth paying retail plus for IMO.

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, someone posted it up here on SF and all heck broke loose. :-/ Sorry to hear, but get in contact with one of those shops as they assuredly will do them again in the not-so-distant future.

Yeah, it's kinda surprising. Even more surprising is my own fleeting desire to jump in on such auctions :D

BTW, best wishes to all those in No Cal.  I hope no one here was significantly affected by the earthquake.

People in Napa were quite affected, although the tremors in san fran and the peninsula weren't really disruptive.
