    Those look very nice. How long have you had them and how much wear have you gotten out of them? I bought on the current pre-order and am really looking forward to having them for late in the spring and summer.

    the formality of the bal contrasts with the casualness of the leather shades perfectly imo . A beautiful shoe

    I have to say that there are some extremely unusual styles in that list of Shoemart seconds. Some very nice and some very very dubious. I suppose we like a certain subset of styles here on this thread (setting aside choice of material), but I wonder who the heck Alden is making all these oddball shoes for.

    I've debated this shoe for years... Your pic is pushing me towards the preorder button

    It looks like all the 2nds that were listed yesterday have been taken down. I highly doubt all of them (including the less sought after styles) were purchased last night.

    Great looking shoes. I love saddles, and don't think they get enough representation. [​IMG]

    Over the past few weeks, I've noticed a few times when TSM's site went into the "show everything" state it was in last night (just for one day each time). I just never noticed the seconds before, because I usually sort by price and stop when I pass from shell to calf around the $600 mark.


    I agree. There were quite a few I've never seen on the Alden thread, and would not have considered purchasing if they were in my size -- and some still that I might not wear if they were free. There must be people out there who appreciate quality footwear, but whose taste is very different from most on this thread.

    Just saw your comment Sazon... didn't mean to steal your vocabulary. I suspect you are a pretty sharp guy! [​IMG]

    I believe whenever TSM updates their stock, all their products go live (whether available or not), including the seconds. Idk if anyone received the seconds list via email, bc i sure didnt... maybe this week?

    Anyone have any other insight into what TSM got in recently? It takes so long to click on every style, I really wish they would simply list what is in stock at the present time. It gets old clicking on ten different styles to be repeatedly rejected. I know of the ravello chukkas, feel free to add to my list of one.
