    Awesome.

    The only ones I'd really consider are the cap toe cordovan boots... $465 for shell boots is a steal... hmmm... weird sizing, though. Would 8H be 8.5?

    I just ordered the Snuff LWBs. They are back ordered until 2/12 though, so I may cancel it. Hoping to find a better option for me in the near term but if not, my spring shoes are all set!

    If anyone's thinking of ordering a pair, I'd act soon. I can't imagine the discount is *truly* meant to apply to 3rd party stuff. It almost never is.

    Those black cordo wingtip boots are awfully tempting for $469 but I think I'll hold off.

    Great deal. Too bad most of what Jcrew offers is on a Barrie last. And only come in D widths. The black shell wt boot looks great

    Yup, was very tempted to make a 4:30 AM buy, just doesn't make sense given that they have speedhooks and leather soles. The cost of replacing those with comando would just about cancel any advantage out. Also too bad about limited lasts/ widths. ALSO too bad that if people keep buying Aldens at JC and other huge retailers, it's likely QC will continue to be what it is. Feeding the beast....

    Looks like JCrew just pulled the good old.."We are sold out" of every Alden.
