    Leather Soul has posted an Alden pre-order for those who haven't seen it: http://leathersoulhawaii.com/2012/01/03/alden-pre-order-2/

    And, I suppose, for those who want to wait 12 months for their shoes/boots. On the special resole/rewelt topic, it hardly seems like it's worth sending shoes back to them to be recrafted if they are going to have them for 9 months AND you aren't going to get what you want. The only time I sent a pair back was maybe two/three years ago or so, and I recall the whole thing taking maybe a month at the most.

    ^ Thanks for that link! There's some really good stuff there...I can really only afford one new pair of shoes so I need to decide which one it's going to be

    Not everyone thinks you lost - I bought the Vanguard and it is my new go-to casual boot.

    Has anyone tried adding a vibram/topy sole to the flex welt sole? I remember someone mentioning that the adhesive doesn't work well on the oiled sole.

    Vanguard boot is cool. I am going to preorder the Alan C, wished I was on that the first time around. If the Vanguard had eyelets instead of speed hooks I'd be all over them too. i actually don't mind the extended wait time, gives me more time to save up the cash...when is the deposit due by?

    The Alan C and Vanguard are both boots I covet as well. These #4 Indy's will hold me until the others are made...
