    Would it be appropriate to infer that you have 4 pairs of black shell cap toes on order?

    While 10-14 is no small feat, I thought it may have been more. I guess the tear that I was noticing may not have been exclusive to Alden, and you may have shared some pics of Rancourts and Vibergs that you bought. It just seemed for a while that every time I clicked on a thread, you had just gotten a new pair of shoes. You must have a lot of calluses on your feet from breaking in so many new pairs.

    I have recently fell in love with the look of the Shell Cordovan Alden Indy.
    So far, I think these have been my favorite- http://epauletshop.tumblr.com/post/3127508729/officersindycigarshell

    I have spent about the last 3 hours calling everywhere from Hawaii, California, New York, Seattle with 0 luck of any in stock, preorder, or future shipments. Does anyone have ideas of what the best way to acquire a pair in the future is, or to get notifications of future orders?

    The shoe mart ones posted earlier today are pretty darn similar IMO.

    If those aren't close enough, one may be waiting for a few more years ......

    May 2013 isn't that long of a wait in the Alden scheme of things. Just the blink of an eye really...

    Also (sorry for so many posts in rapid succession) is 8.5D your true size? or your Trubalance size? As they may vary SIGNIFICANTLY.

    Sorry, I have 13 (for some reason I really thought it was only 10). The 14th are black shell plain cap toes, Hampton last from Alden NY.

    Originally, I had also forgotten the two pair of Truflare wingtips I recently acquired.

    I wear an 8.5D in my Alden Indy 403, so I am guessing it would be the same in the Shell Cordovan. Is that correct?

    FYI, Alden of NY just emailed me they just received a Cigar Indy (trubalance, double leather soles) in 8D that are on hold for me. Since I picked up a pair with commando soles a few months ago from J. Gilbert, I'm going to let them know I no longer want them.

    if you are 8.5D in barries, I feel that 8D would work with the indys. they run a bit wider with indys from experience with my pair. If you are that desperate for it, get the 8. you always can return them.

    looks like it might be time to snatch up a couple staple shoes and retire from the shell ring [​IMG]
