    My whiskey Indy boots from Alden DC with the double waterlock sole have the "footbalance" rubber heel. That's an option

    My LS jumpers inadvertently came this way as well (double waterlock sole with footbalance rubber heel).

    I just added myself to the googleDoc - so I'm clear, is the #4 boot still the first choice w/the Thor as the back-up?

    I think the google doc was for the Cigar.

    I think they are going to approach DC with both designs and see if they accept one, the other, or both.

    Please correct me if I am mistaken.

    You are correct Bakes. Hopefully they can do both.

    As previously indicated, I'm interested but would like to know the deposit amount and anticipated delivery date before providing a hard commitment.

    I would think we would know the deposit amount once a retailer has agreed to the makeup (assuming it would be based on their usual retail policy). The delivery date will be hard to come by based on previous experience. The retailer could submit the order to Alden but not receive confirmation for a while (?).
