1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Agreed. I am 9.5d in Trubalance, 10d in Leydon and 10d in Plaza is too narrow for my feet so definitely go with half size from Trubalance/Modified last.

    Copy says reverse 360 welt. Is that the same as a storm welt? The Innsbruck I believe is more casual than their usual #8 alt wien. Here's a version in CXL. I think it's going to be just this but with #8 and matched eyelets.

    Go with your Aberdeen size.

    As others said, you will want to go with the 10, as it is not as general us of a last as the Barrie is.

    ...but they show the previous version with hidden eyelets and a flat welt. I'm not trying to stir controversy, but I'd like to have it rendered explicit. If someone else is calling them I'll avoid doubling up, but I'd like to hear specific answers...

    I think they only used the previous alt wein design to get a better sense of color. Copy says 360 reverse, so it's gonna be a storm welt which is how the other Innsbruck designs have been. Should be a nice causal make up, but I like the previous design better myself.

    Innsbruck Color #8 Shell Cordovan Alt Wien: $695 - 12 units
    (as pictured in the mockup)
    Upper: Horween Color #8 Shell Cordovan (see inset shoe for correct leather color)
    Outsole: "Commando" sole with reverse 360-degree welt and antique edge trim.
    Matched metal eyes
    Last: Barrie

    I think the inset is only to show a proper rendering of the leather. All the other details are consistent with their Innsbruck models. No harm in calling, though, I suppose!

    Any suggestions on where I should check for a whiskey LHS? I'm on a ton of lists at The ShoeMart...is that my best bet?

    It's the "As Pictured in the mockup" part that is screwing me up. They should state "Color 8 leather as pictured, other details include... etc."

    Hearing no responses from an earlier post, I shall ask again if any of the forum members have any recent experience with the amount of time needed to receive a shoe that is not in stock at the factory? I just do not wish to pay for a shoe and then it to take over a year. Thanks.

    TheShoeMart is your best bet.

    It really depends, and the stockist is at the mercy of Alden. Some waits are short, some are sorta short (I should be getting a pair I ordered in Sept. any day now) and some are 1-3 years...

    It's kinda crazy, but...
