    Great collection!!

    Did Leffot just get the color #8 captoe in stock? Or did they happen to have your size?

    I think it is a Tan Suede Ranger Moc.
    I would say BB Black Unlined LHS, even though it was not one of the options.

    Maybe the Black Unlined PTB from Alden DC?

    Can't wait to see them!

    When I saw your first picture post, I thought "he must have more than just six pairs..."

    Then I saw the rest, and it made much more sense.

    Nice collection!

    They just got them in stock. I was in the neighborhood and just stopped by to say hi and they were on display. They aren't online yet. I asked them if I could post them here, Steven said no problem, I anticipate he will get some calls soon

    They put this request into Alden about three months ago. I was in the store yesterday and they said they don't have a confirmation yet and they don't expect to see the boot anytime soon. Give them a call to see if they still have your size available on the preorder list.

    Is it Barrie lasted? Is it similar to the J Crew boot?

    Barrie Last. This is the color 8 version of Leffot's "naval boot." The main differences are between this boot and the J Crew version that this boot is all eyelets instead of eyelets + speed hooks and the sole is an antique edge instead of the standard black edge. Actually the most important difference for me was the availability of an E width.

    Alcibiades, outstanding collection. The new boots just seal the deal all the way. I pre-ordered the black Leffot Naval boot months ago. I'm glad somebody's getting to wear new boots this weekend. Boo f'n whoo.

    Awesome! Thanks for the pics. Trying to restrain myself and stick to priorities but these pics are making it tough
