    Holy horse, I couldn't resist.

    I can't believe it but I'm picking up ANOTHER pair of Aldens - after my last ridiculous Leather Soul SWB in Ravello I can't believe I just picked up a pair of Color 8 Indys - too good to pass up I guess.

    I'm tempted to let the 403s go now...

    Also - folks who purchased from NRO, let's keep each other updated - I'm worried they will cancel the orders as I think the fine print may read that the coupon doesn't apply to Aldens. Has anyone's North River Outfitters order (after 20% off) shipped? I'll let you all know when my Indy #8's go out.

    As far as the fine print goes I think you should be fine. The email I received had fine print excluding Church's and Omersa, but not Alden. If anyone wants the actual email, PM me and I can forward the promo email from NRO.

    haaaahhaha I just pulled the trigger on a pair of #8 Indys as well. Here's to hoping these orders go through. So glad I've been mulling over buying them for full price the past few days now.

    When I check my order status online, it states something like "Being reviewed by staff". We'll see...

    Just as an FYI, its taken NRO at least three days to ship when I've ordered from them in the past.

    Thanks for the heads up. I'm glad I chose 2nd day air shipping.

    Anytime there is a good deal you should upgrade shipping if you really want the item. Just tried adding like 10 different random combinations of LWB in E width, all added to cart fine so I'm wondering if inventory is accurate or not. Really trying to hold off on the #8 indys right now...

    haha I've gone to the checkout page twice already and held off. I'm backing up my phone and hard disks right now so being on a computer is really tempting me... I really want the LS Jumpers or a officer / naval style boot that's a bit more dressy though and already have two pairs of Indys.

    FUGGG I wonder if there is a way to change the shipping to 2 day, getting very paranoid.

    Hehe. I feel like if they're not going to give them to us, faster shipping probably won't fool them. My order status is "Being Assembled".

    ye i dont see why faster shipping would keep them from canceling your order?

    Probably assuming that rushed shipping means processing and getting the shoes out of the place faster - less time to check fine print.
