    This gets pointed out all the time. There are only two sizes in stock. They are at the larger end of the spectrum.

    I really need to stop following this thread because:

    1) Its the same stuff posted over and over again. I am already familiar with 99% of the content posted.
    2) There is essentially a moratorium on new make-ups (for all intents and purposes)
    3) I pretty much have all the Aldens that I want that are available, and there are only a few that I want that are unavailable.


    It has just become so routine for me to check the thread. Like a smoker that wants to quit and doesn't even enjoy it, but keeps doing it out of compulsion.

    Edit: Not that I don't recognize that the OP's only intentions was to be helpful to others.

    Howdy, boys. Anybody have some insight into which retailer carries plain toe boots, preferably in color 8? Alden of Carmel carries them, but only on Trubalance last. I'd prefer Barrie last, or I guess Leydon. The best make-up in my opinion was Blackbird's creamery boot, but I don't think they carry them any more. Thanks.

    Leydon boot is not going to happen. I think Alden NYC used to carry them but I am not sure about now. A grant lasted captoe is available from a few places and would be much easier to find

    I just sold an item that if I had sold before that auction closed, I could of justified bidding... oh well. Shoot me a PM with what you're asking for your boots.

    You sold a pair just last year ... you went and bought it again?

    Oh wait ... this must be the pair that you scored for 20% off.
