    Hi, need help/advise. I have been searching high and low for a pair of Alden in either Ravello or Whiskey for either a NST or Captoe boots for almost 6 months now. Have tried TSM and was told that they r out of stock m they do nt ship overseas(i stay outside US) for Alden shoes. I can't even pre order one.
    Tried LS and it seems like their shells r only reserved for their VIP. Tried Leffot n they dont take preorder for these as well. Is there any more options for me?

    You are probably out of luck, particularly given the scarcity of whiskey and ravello.

    I think ravello PTBs for me, which is why I own them. Or, by grail, do you mean they have to be nearly unattainable?

    has always been the "Thor" boot from my avatar.



    As far as virtually unattainable: Ravello LHS with single leather sole and antique edge trim. Could also wear a Mahogany or #4 LHS.

    Maybe also an exotic shell boot like a Ravello or Whiskey PT Boot on Barrie, all eyelets, leather sole, antique edge trim.



    For anyone who might own some: IRL is mahogany distinguishably different from cigar? or is the difference hard to discern?

    Thanks for the Pic.

    That is quite an achievement!

    When did they stop making Mahogany, if anyone knows?

    I don't mean unattainable, just your most coveted Alden shoe. I'm sure scarcity in and of itself does cause some level of attractiveness, however.

    I do have Ravello PTBs, which I love btw...

    Try
    http://www.shoesandshirts.nl/shoes/alden

    or Anatomica Paris

    Shoes & Shirts has a great lineup but they refuse to ship to US, otherwise it'd be like $586 before shipping a pair :eek:

    Gotcha, then my answer stands with the ravello PTB. A #4 barrie last NST boot with all eyelets, antique edging, and commando sole sounds pretty sexy, however.

    These are my favorite Aldens: Whiskey and mahogany saddle Norwegians. Alden AF1 (The first "fan" shoe from Alden of Carmel.)

    Kudu Ultimate Indy on the Modified Last

    Holy Grail (and coincidentally unattainable)
