    Has anyone bought/seen any cordovan balmoral shoes (closed lacing) in any of the rarer colors recently?

    I have this issue on my indy's. It is without a doubt a manufacturing defect in my case because the tongue is off center. dont have this problem with any other alden shoes/boots.

    on another note, i am loving these right now. something about roughed out loafers in the winter seems extra stylish to me.

    Ravello is beautiful, I just prfer teh darker hue of cigar, and to me it works better in teh winter.

    When I spoke to shoemart, they said that Alden is running a year on new cigar orders.

    IMHO the best shoe past for Chromexcel pull-up leather is Saphir Graise Medalile D'or.
    I use it on my Indy 403 ASA the 57245 Horse Bit Loafer Pull-up.
    I made from natural animal fat, and it provides great shine.

    I'll have to call the Shoemart and see if I can reserve a pair. I'm on the waiting list at Leffot in case anyone in a 9D isn't able to fulfill their pre-order but I doubt that will happen.

    What I really need is for someone to buy my Ravello LWB listed in the B&S.

    What you really need is bigger feet and that problem would be solved. :fu:

    Leffot only has 9.5 left on the LWB Color 8...I wonder if I can pull it off...how is the toe room on barrie last? I'm 10 in trubalance w/ generous toe room, 10 in grant which fits like a glove but doesn't hurt my feet.
