    ^ Speaking of J Crew, they have yet to cancel my #8 crepe LWBs I ordered during one of their last sales. They were supposed to ship on Dec. 4th. Fingers crossed.

    Here's to hoping you get them soon.

    You'll have to post some PICs when you get them.

    Hi guys,

    I'm quite new to the world of Alden (I only think we have one stockist in Sweden – with a very limited selection) and I would be very happy if you could help point me in the right direction to find my grail shoes!

    I'm looking for a pair of cap toe boots with speed hooks in #8 (or possibly black) in a size 8 or 8.5 (Grant, Hampton or Aberdeen last). In a perfect world with a C width (but I guess D could work).

    I love the look of Frans Boones Parajumper Boots but don't have time to wait for the re-stock. Does anyone know if there is anything similar to what I'm looking for anywhere?

    Any help would be much appreciated!

    Some dude reported that he called J Crew and asked about these orders. They said that the orders would be fulfilled.
    (Although the first rule of the hot deal is to never call customer service.)

    Also, based on past experience with these J Crew coupons, they didn't cancel orders once they were accepted.
    I guess this case is a little different since there is such a long time before they're expected to ship.

    This is the closest thing I can think of to the Parajumper. You can always have the eyelets swapped out for brass if you're really into that...

    Thanks! Do you know if there is any difference between the 4060 at Shoemart and the Parajumpers other than the brass eyelets and speed hooks?
    And has anyone seen the 4060's in a C last anywhere?

    J Crew has allowed 25% off from time to time.
    I think they just don't like people to run wild on it maybe.

    On the CTA
    JCrew always seems to stand by their ordering mistakes. I'd guess its bc they're a large company and eating the (perhaps) $100 on a pair of Aldens is worth satisfying a customer who's got the money to purchase their most expensive items.

    To my knowledge, the only differences are:

    1. Parajumper has brass eyelets
    2. Parajumper has speed hooks, rather than all eyelets

    You probably won't find a C last in this shoe, but you can try calling The Shoe Mart and asking if there's a way to order a pair.

    Is that a single sole or double? Looks like a single.
