    The ones they sell look like rebranded Tacco Leather Insoles (also called Luxus or 613). You can get them for half the price from elsewhere online.

    I use these all the time to get a perfect fit in some shoes. I'd say that they add about 1/4 size.

    Mine just arrived today, the order process was very strange. First there was a charge on my cc. Then it showed the cc transaction was cancelled so i sent an email to customer service asking why my order was cancelled. They reply with a message that the order is shipped and included a tracking number. Now its weird because there is still no charge on my card and im tracking my package. This afternoon i get home from work package is here so i checked my cc and it has been charged. For a couple days i though they sent me a free pair of aldens.....yea!

    I got the Black Unlined. [​IMG]

    Not sure I get the MJ reference, unless you mean moonwalk? (Sorry, I'm slow)
    What'd you get?
    [​IMG] Glad that someone found it funny.

    Edit: Also, post more pics of those cap-toes for me to drool on?

    I don't think I'm in love with the crepe. It looks nice with the snuff suede, but I wouldn't get it on a cordovan shoe. When these wear out, I think might try having B. Nelson put a double leather sole on them.

    i just called directly and the sales rep applied the 30% discount to a pair of #8 straight tip bluchers without batting an eye...got an order confirmation within 30 min, card billed, shipping confirmation in 2-3 business days.

    was gonna get the lhs in 9d--had it in my cart the night before--but when i got around to checking out after work on the day the sale started, it was out of stock! hoping you get yours.

    i will splurge for the faster shipping next time.



    on a related note, any success with ordering j.crew alden shell with their ongoing 25% discount? none on this end...

    i actually really like the crepe sole, but only on an indy boot, which is already bulkier in profile. it makes for a very comfortable ride.
    i just got the unionmade version

    ill post pics

    Well... I'm on that Alden grind this week - so in addition to the snuff suede (J.Crew) LWB's I picked up the 9751's - LWB in Black Shell... :slayer:

    Now my preorder with Leffot needs to be the Kudu LWB...

    Any idea how the sizing of the RL Marlow would be? I don't know how the color would compare to Cigar or other exotic shells...

    I know what you mean. I posted these recently to compare single waterloc flex welt to crepe on the chukka. I have to say its growing on me.
