    Brick+Mortar has a similar boot to Leffot on a pre-order right now but with the double waterloc sole and blind eyelets.
    http://brickmortarseattle.com/coming-soon.html

    I skipped the Color 8 Leffot because of the sole, and jumped on the Brick+Mortar preorder because I much preferred the double waterloc. My suede Dovers are all flex-soled, and although they are super comfortable when I first put them on, if I do any real walking in them I am sure to feel it by the end of the day.

    I told the guys at citishoes Id post for them because they have been great to deal with.

    They have a few color 8 tankers with antique edge/commando on plaza left if anybody is interested. I grabbed the last size 9 last night- new favorite

    I just spoke with Citishoes and they said that the models of Alden's that they have on sale (30% off) are as follows:

    911, 904, 903, 909, 901, 930, 947 85, 9501, 6243f

    Good luck!

    Very nice looking. I've been wanting an NST in snuff suede for a while but this is making me give the milkshake suede another look.

    I couldn't agree more. It seems like the trend is to have a single leather or flex sole with the plaza last, at least in more recent make-ups. I suppose the double leather suits a "country" boot/shoe (i.e. barrie last) as opposed to the dressier plaza last being more suited to the sleeker, dressier make-ups with a single leather sole.

    If the TSM plaza medallion cap boot were on double leather, I would have already snagged it.

    It is an incredible make-up. I think the single leather suits it well and I find it a nice, dressier alternative.
