    Are these the ones from Leffot? I was there a few days ago, they are quite nice in person.

    Wow if TSM got those NSTs that quickly, then then the Ravello wingtip boots should be here soon too!

    I put in an order on June 13. I was told there were "about a dozen" people on the list that time. There seemed to be some (but not total) confidence that the order would be at least that big.

    I put my name on the list on June 14 so I'd imagine I'm close behind you. I feel confident that they got us in!

    Ok so updates to all the above.

    It is NOT confirmed or in production.
    It will likely be the next boot put into production when the ravelo can be sourced.

    There is ALOT of people on the list and the amount made will soley depend on how much Alden can source.
    They will make everything that they can and use the whole alotment of ravelo if they can.

    So its not going to be anytime soon.

    Although it did sound like if individuals were interested in the NST shoe, that they should enquire, because they may or may not be all spoken for.

    Additionally JGilbert has some interesting stuff in the pipeline, including possibly the new medalion toe boot in color 8.

    What else does JGilbert have planned? Medallion toe boot would be very cool in color 8!

    I'm biased but I'll agree with that. These are my indys. Plan to abuse them and expect they'll look better for it.

    Which run of the WT boots are you talking about? The one from Alden Madison should be arriving towards end of year, last I heard [​IMG]

    The conversation I replied to was about the ravello NST, aberdeen boot from TSM. The wingtip boot I was also talking about was from TSM.

    I'd love a ravello wingtip boot... do either the Madison or the TSM wingtip boots have antique edging? Are there any upcoming orders (from them or elsewhere) that one can get on for such a boot??

    Wow, this whole conversation is super confusing.

    ShoeMart and Alden NY both have Ravello Wingtips in production and they were both submitted in the June timeframe. They should be done relatively soon. December sounds like a conservative estimate, but it may be possible due to the number of orders confirmed. I believe they both have Tan "Antique" edges but I do not know for sure with the Alden NY order as I am not on that one. If interested in them contact one of the two retailers in hope that someone backs out or that they have a list going for their 2030 runs.

    The Ravello NST shoe was a small run of 12. The Ravello NST Boot is just a dream list with no confirmation.

    I believe the one from Alden Madison is a dark edge trim.
