    Right, that's a Russian store that started selling Alden not so long ago. The prices are insane though. ($770 for that particular boot)
    AoC has a somewhat similar model on Barrie w/ commando sole. TSM stocks something in that spirit too.

    Thanks. I didn't do the price calculation, but figured it would be something crazy -- and in any case am not prepared to order from that site.

    The AoC and TSM boots are nice, but I really like the contrasting eyelets against the black on this other one, and am interested in trying the crepe sole. Hard to find a makeup like this...

    So I've hit a bit of a dilemma... I had an order in for my size Alden LWBs in Color 8. However, it got canceled due to a flap between the store and Alden. This shoe was going to fill my wardrobe for daily wear (typically nicer "business casual") as well as the infrequent occasions I wear a suit.

    At this point, I'm considering a Color 8 LHS or LWB, or possibly even stepping outside of Alden (in the same price range). Any thoughts would be appreciated.

    (Also, I wear 7.5D in Barrie... would I wear the same in the Van last?)

    The 975 is a main staple to any wardrobe... Why not just buy it directly from Alden via one of their company stores (DC or San Francisco) or is your size the issue? I believe thats a style they readily keep in stock (unless the rumors about a shell shortage that have been circulating on the forum have come to bear reality).

    Thanks for the kind words.
    Yes, ep French blue. The blue compliments ravello nicely.

    Agreed. I wear my navy Rivets with Ravello frequently. I will have to look at the french blue as well

    I can't believe I missed these. LS had my size and I decided to give my visa a break:satisfied:
    Amazing, simply best casual boot. Hopefully next run for me.

    It seems the even greater shortage of rare shell can be attributed to your very nice collection. These look great man.
