    CXL I presume? That picture almost looks Whiskey.

    Thanks for all of the feedback!

    Well that is a great pair for sure! The only issue is the opportunity to buy a pair in 8.5D before May, unless you have a spare for sale? :)

    Maiden voyage - Leffot Walter boot in color 8
    [​IMG]

    Will take some better photos in natural light. As much as I love the look of the Plaza (hoping to get on the pre-order for a pair of Bristol boots on Monday), the Barrie fits me best across any last. Would really like to get these in black too, but it sounds like I'll have to swap out the black hardware for brass to stay true to the original build.

    I've enjoyed this forum for a few years now, and I really appreciate the helpfulness of its members. I got my first pair of Aldens in 2011, give or take a year, from a store in New York that was getting bought out by Allen Edmunds. I was able to find a pair of 975s. The right shoe was a floor model and was significantly lighter than the left, which had been sitting in a box for a dozen years. Gives the pair some nice character. Does anyone remember the name of that store? They ran a pretty deep discount on every pair of Aldens they had in the shop, and this board was buzzing for a few days. Those 975s are still my favorite pair. Not that I have as extensive of a collection as some other members, but I was definitely hooked on shell after that.

    Wish they were Black, for me current offerings of #8 are to dark for some casual combinations and not black for formal wear, otherwise I will be all over those.

    Got one of those, too. In sf fashion, I highly recommend both. Congrats on your incoming MTO! It will be worth the wait.
