    I'm in Sydney and I've just received notification from UPS that my Daytrippers are en route. Love the anticipation. I too wonder what the Ravello shade will be like.

    I will post pics.

    i have no idea when leffot re-ordered after their last run of daytrippers but i'm sure his 8 month wait was just that he reserved a size that had already been ordered.

    a little birdy told me leffot will have another pre-order of day trippers coming up. the order has been submitted and they are waiting for it to be confirmed by alden at which point it will be put online under the normal leffot alden pre-order system.

    I got what must have been the other size 9.5D cigar captoe boot (from Alden DC). My understanding is that the wait list for that size is now 9-10 deep. I suppose I feel lucky.

    I pre-ordered my Day Tripper back in January of this year, I guess I didn't make the first round of pre-orders?

    I've been lurking this thread for months and it's finally time to make my first post. Just bought my first pair of Aldens ever, the cigar Shell Cordovan Cap-toe Boot from Alden DC! I'd like to thank all of you for the plethora of valuable information in this thread; and while it was a long wait I'm glad I was patient enough for this model to restock. I'll post pictures up as soon as they arrive on my doorstep.

    Just one pertinent question: I bought it in size 8D and was wondering which shoe trees (size, brand, style) would go best with the Grant last. I feel like this is an important piece of the shoe care puzzle and want to make sure I get the right fit.

    i always use hanger project/woodlore EPIC. same thing. $30. in a size 8 you'd want a small or medium. they're never consistent. i'd start with a medium... i tend to like my trees tight.

    I'm a size 8 and the Woodlore Epic is my favorite shoe tree. I would definitely recommend a small. They run quite large. As it is, some of my shoes/boots will not take even a small in the Epic. For those, I use an Allen-Edmonds full shoe tree in small also.

    I'm thinking small as well. I'm a 10D and use a Medium. I don't think having them super tight would be good for the leather, unless you want a longer shoe (?).

    Lovely pair. That's next on my list!

    Also, thanks everyone for the shoe tree replies. I'm going to go with the woodlore epic in small.

    These are my babies. I love an antique edge, but these are so perfect with my navy suit. Military-sharp.
