    I have those and I don't think I have ever received as many compliments from strangers about a pair of shoes that I own as I have received when I am wearing these.

    As for the red brick sole... it may be a bit silly, but it is definitely comfortable. However, when it is time to re-sole, I doubt I will be going with that again.

    Yeah, that's true but so far, it's the best last for me so I buy what I like on it otherwise it's the Barrie. And that's not a very svelte last either. I want to try the grant and plaza soon.

    For anyone waiting for the captoe boot in #4 from Shoemart, I just gave them a call and those boots are now expected in May 2013. Joe was wildly optimistic when he told me mid-summer (which I knew was never happening), but thought I would provide an update.

    ^ Can you do a pre-order for the #4 boot on TSM? Or do you just need to wait and purchase quickly upon arrival?

    Thanks!

    I am on the preorder list, but they may all already be spoken for.

    PSA --- Just got an email from TSM. For the next 20 hours (till noon ET tomorrow), there's a 20% off sale. I'm assuming it's on anything as there weren't any conditions listed. Use code "every20" at checkout.

    On the CTA
    There were conditions listed and it's not applicable to Alden.
