I fixed it:

I snagged a couple pairs of exotic shell from the most recent seconds drop on TSM. Will sell them to someone here if I can make $0 per pair. Send me a message if you're interested. Thanks.

$861 + Shipping - Ravello Chukka Boot Barrie 11.5 B/D 13750

Anyone on these? I'll throw them on eBay or return them if nobody here is interested. Thanks.

You Sr., nailed it on the head.

This captures my sentiment. I know many get frustrated by the rare shell game and it is annoying to see people successfully buy and flip. But Alden has created this situation, not the OP. Alden is the only maker of fine footwear where it is nearly impossible to score rare shell. C&J, Viberg, Carmina, Bonafe and others seem to have no problem sourcing light color shell from Horween. There is a saying people I know use routinely, 'don't hate the playa hate the game'. Again, Alden created this situation.

I don't have the connections that many do so when I get an opportunity for rare shell it is typically because of the 4 or 5 color 8 purchases I've previously made so yes, when I sell, I'm factoring that in to the equation. I respect those that are willing to offer their rare shell at a discount. But I am completely unbothered by someone who is looking to profit. If Alden doesn't like this, change their model to one that makes rare shell available for those willing to pay the price.

The raising of funds continues... Shoot me a message if you're interested in anything. Also, send me trades only because while I need money I still have a shoe/boot obsession to cope with as well...

Alden Plain Toe Navy CXL Boot - 12 B/D Barrie - $400
Crockett & Jones for RL Black Calf Lindrick - 12D 325 Last - $700

Let me know if I need to remove the C&J listing. Thought I would just include it.

Thanks,
Nick

Gee I’m tempted with those as they’re my size. However I’m conflicted as I rarely wear my #8 LWBs.
Hmm...

Two BNIB cigar shell boots for sale, neither seconds. $900 net to me each, after shipping (give me a zip code and I'll give you cost) and any fees if paying with something that charges them.

2 absolute stunners, both at great prices. My money says both go to the same buyer and are gone before Sunday.
