    I emailed them asking about the 30% off and pricing, but they never wrote back. So for anyone else, looks like calling is the best option.

    Taps definitely help longevity, but I prefer adding topys. I tend to have back/hip issues and have found that taps can be tough unless they're fit so that the sole is cut, not just added on top. Best of luck!

    Wow. I haven't been bitten by the black shell bug yet, but these are stunners. Between these and the Rydenfan boots, I might end up owning a pair or 2 of black shell boots from Alden if I can't contain my wallet. Side note: I heard black shell won't have brass eyelets anymore either. So basically no shell at all with brass anymore?

    Black and Color 8 are the new Black.
    4 years ago I had no black shell. Ignored it.

    Today I have 4 pair.

    Don't sleep on the beauty of black !

    When was the last batch of Ravello or Whiskey we saw ? Seems like ages ago.

    You can only get brass shell with brass eyelets @chrisefi

    I have the recent TSM makeup and it's gorgeous. I prefer the all eyelets, but the medallion and flex sole on the Leffot makeup are really sweet.

    I think I would prefer a double sole on those bristol boots. The single sole looks a bit dainty.

    I owned one pair of boots with a single sole. Single flex sole, to be more specific. I found the sole to be too thin for real city walking. Walking over some cobblestone streets I felt like I could actually feel the stones and their shapes on my feet. Maybe the flex sole was too flexible?

    I much prefer the robustness of a double sole.

    Anyone else have the same experience?
