1. I'd like to announce that animated avatars are now available again. You'll have to reload, but they are once more possible.

    We've been doing a ton of work behind the scenes. The site load speed was already under 1/2 of what Huddler's was, on average, and we installed cloudflare, which means that the site should be even faster. A ton more will go on in the weeks and months to come, and some things will be more visibile, and some less.

    Cheers,

    Fok.

    Looks a bit darker than Ravello, like between Ravello and Color 8. Not bad indeed.

    I love #8 and Ravello, but this shade is great. I would like to see more of it in Alden's shoes.

    If the color is that important, grab it when you can, especially for #4...its a rare one...though



    Sweet, forget the boots, your Mrs is a keeper.



    I've seen these and the Leffot #4s this year alone, could it be that this leather is now a little more available? It appears that ravello is becoming what #4 was, uber rare.

    No haven't noticed that at all, but then again, all my shoes are topy'd except for the 403 Alden Indy and my unlined suede PTBs

    I have them. they're great. get complimented on them all the time. i do find that they fit a bit smaller than a pair of aldens in the same size/last but made from cordovan.

    That tan calf looks fantastic, especially with the commando sole. Great boots.

    Is that more or less than "tons of complments"?

    I like those boots. One of the first Aldens I purchased but I had to send them back due to a flaw.

    If it really bothers you, I believe you can always send them back to Alden to be re-dyed... for a price.
