    I understand, but my fingers are itching for a boot and I needed an Alden shell in my life. Stinks the one(s) I want are currently/tentatively/eternally unattainable due to a lack of availability. Was thinking of going the non shell route towards the C&J Skye or cap toe...

    ^ Epaulet Brixton? I thought they would be coming soon with all the recent batches of Ravello that have been popping up at several different retailers lately. I think this month makes it an even 2 years now since that order was placed.

    Do you really need it by Alden? Sounds like a McNairy/sanders model.

    I wonder how Alden figures out when to fill certain orders. We know a lot of ravello has popped up recently, but a lot of that has been in "stock" models (chukkas, longwings, etc).

    Sometime boots pop up out of the blue (like the Unionmade ravello captoe boots - I don't recall that being publicized in a preorder or anything), so you have to be diligent. If you want rare cordovan, "stock" models like longwings, PTBs and chukkas seem to pop up more often than some of the high boots.

    Alden Madison has a waiting list for the #8 w/ commandos if you're into that.. with a tentative arrival date of the "next couple of months."

    McNairy doesn't have lasts because he doesn't make the shoes. But I get what you're saying.

    I have color 8 with dark edging and I have color 8 with antique edging. I easily prefer dark edging.
