    Absolutely love the gunboat collection my friend! I'm awfully tempted to pull the trigger on these Leffot color 8 LWB with antique edge. Is it too redundant to have it and the standard 975??

    Slightly off topic,
    but I figure there have to be some My Morning Jacket fans in this thread ...
    I think Jim James is wearing shell Indy's at 1:54 in this video

    too masculine for a woman. Need a slighter wing and finer detailing. I do wish my woman would venture into wearing stuff like this, though.

    My girlfriend says they look like something a witch would wear. I think with a lower heel they might be serviceable. It just points out the dearth of really good footwear, especially in shell, available for women these days.

    So I had reserved a pair of those Leffot Color 8 LWB's with the antique edge trim via preorder a few months back and got the dreaded "your shoes are defective" email today. What concerns me is that I saw a pair of these available for sale in my size two days ago when the shoe was first posted on the website. Any chance they sold mine and used the excuse that mine were defective? Even if it was an extra on order, wouldn't you think that they would make sure the preordered units were good prior to putting any extras for sale on the website?

    You'd sure think so. That's disappointing, though you'd think that this is the kind of shoe that can and will be reordered. On the other hand you should have them now. Not at some unknown future date.

    My wife made the same witch comment when she saw these. I can't imagine any scenario where a woman would want to wear a black shell longwing heel...I guess that's why they're on sale for less than half of retail, something which is pretty much impossible for a brand new men's shell longwing.

    :foo:

    I could do without this......and the video you posted of the guy touching himself while caressing his hanover cordovan shoes.

    Also of note, neither video has anything to do with alden shoes or this thread
