    I am smitten with the Naval boots as well. I do have the Leffot tanker with antique edge on pre-order though!!! Wish I was getting good news on them, soon...haha

    by "on leather" you were talking about the soles. I'm sorry tifosi for being so inattentive.

    tifosi, I put in a pre-order for the Leffot tanker boot (Color 8) as well. As much as I would like to have the Naval Boot in color 8, the Tanker in my preferred 10.5C will be the better choice in the long run. It will also be my first Alden NST.

    It will be my first Alden NST as well. When I first started getting really into Alden, I almost fell out of my chair the first time I saw those boots. Excited to be able to get them...someday. I had the same response with their #8 LWB with antique. Excited to be able to get them as well...someday. I hate pre-orders! haha

    Looking terrific MrDV. You have perfect timing. I just got the call from Alden DC, my ordered Ravello LWBs arrived and they are now shipping to me. Anyone interested, Alden DC just got their shipment in. Not sure how many were pre ordered. Best of luck!

    Not sure quite how the system works, but my understanding is that all sellers are provided an allotment of the available resources. Guess it was their turn. Not sure if that means others have an allotment available to them per se.

    Man there are some killer shell boots and LWBs posted today. Have been swamped ALL day and came to find 63 unread posts! Tough to keep up. Your pics are looking phenomenal today, especially Sazon and those color 8 Naval Boots!! [​IMG]

    A little embarrassed to show off some Alden calf, but that's what I've sported today... (my second pair of Aldens from a few years back; they make for a nice beater/rainy day shoe)

    The happiness that spreads through the thread when preorders start to arrive is pretty cool

    Repp, Those are some nice looking gunboats and I would not be embarrassed to show those fine pieces of Alden craftsmenship anywhere. We here have way too much shell and should be posting more calf, but I do think most people get Alden's due to their far superior treatment of shell. Enjoy your boats! -Mike

    Yes, however, the exponentially growing frustration for 2 years of waiting for tan Suede LWBs, a la Leather Sole is depressing! Sorry Beatleguese [​IMG]
