    Aldo takes FOREVER to ship. I ordered on thursday of last week and they're expected to arrive at the end of the day this friday. I know it's free shipping and all, but damn.

    Digging all the positive reviews, yet to have a naysayer!

    indeed. I could definitely see them jack up the price of these things to $200-$225 if demand is good.

    Sounds like I'm the only one who paid the full $175 plus tax.

    Oh well. Here's how I wore mine today:

    You could prolly call the company and ask for a price reduction of $25 if you give them the code. They're a big corp so they'll prolly comply

    Nope, I did too.

    BTW, wearing mine today. They look great.

    Gotta admit, these are a hidden gem. Even the worst of shoe stores can pop out a winner.

    Got my notification already for shipping. Ordered yesterday and says delivery on Oct 24th. What's annoying is I typed in my unit number first before the Street number and it didn't show up on the shipping address. Noticed this on the order confirm, sent an email right away for the address info update and they reply to me after they have shipped the shoe. Hopefully, between the UPS and my Front Desk it'll get sorted. :embar:

    Anyone get the brown ones?

    Wondering if they grew on you. I prefer some contrast in the shoe, they just put the same dark sole on it, I would have liked some variation, maybe stitching, something.

    I ordered the brown ones...and I'd love to tell you they're great, but they haven't even been shipped yet 4 days later.

    Aldo's Fail shows up in different ways. I contacted customer service and the reason they have not shipped is because no store in NJ has them in stock...so instead of just directing the order to the dozen stores in ny or pennsylvania that have them, they figured they would just sit on the order and wait till a jersey store got them in stock...which would be who knows when.

    On top of the that, they charge your credit card at the time of the order not the time of shipment like just about every other company.

    Cancel and buy direct from a store that has them. They will still ship free.
