    I did...for now

    Any Aldens he has that I want usually aren't stocked in widths wider than D, so I my selection is limited in those. I tried on some Danner and Viberg boots, though. Might get the Danners

    I did see a ravello cap toe on display, so there's at least 1 more pair left in those

    unless my eyes were playing tricks on me, I thought I saw one of these still display:

    http://leffot.com/2011/09/29/alden-x-leffot-day-tripper-boot/

    looked too light for cigar. then again, maybe it was one of the lighter cigars since some cigars are VERY dark now and I just thought it was ravello by comparison (my cigar lw look almost black they're so dark)

    I have not added this to mine...been hanging on to my "#8" vintage Hanover LWB, a little more red than Alden's #8. The Leffot makeup is AWESOME! I think my next pair will be the Alden #8, will swap out the sole for the Leffot style.

    $710

    Cigar always goes for more. Word is new cigar orders are a year out and with Aldens pending price increase I'd guess that will jump up at least $50-$100.
