#8, plaza, antique
i'll take any 2 but not all 3
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
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...
Just got my invoice for Whiskey Tankers...its been a long wait.
For most of us the long wait sure beats NEVER. Looking forward to pics...
what is this about whiskey tankers?
First of all, Congrats!
That's a very nice strap and an especially remarkable GS. Do you find shell to be warmer than leather bands on your wrist? I ask this because shell tend to wear warmer than calf skin. Also does the strap bloom?
Wow, how do you like the quality of it? At that price, it can't be beat! I was looking at shell straps and most of them were in the $100 range, which I'm okay with as well. But hey, $50 is even better!
How are they making their margins when everybody is charging $100 a pop? You find the quality to be similar to Horween Shell?
Thanks for the recommendation! Your strap looks really good.
Thanks brother, thing is..I might unload them and use the funds towards another pair of GG .
I will regret selling those whiskey unicorns though.
I just got a tracking number...
I have these in CXL. They're incredibly versatile, probably my most worn shoe. Tempting to have them in 8 as well, but having the exact same makeup in 2 dark leathers is probably a little frivilous.
