    hmmmm still on the fence, to go snuff or tan suede in the chukkas. gotta look back through this thread on leydon sizing recs too.

    darn shame that #4 NST boot was an error. but looks like I would've been slower than you guys anyhow.

    I picked up some Kudu Indy's with the commando sole from ShoeMart's Factory 2nds. I've been looking at those and the #8 indys with commando for wet fall/winter weather but I am not sure how I feel about exposing cordovan shoes to those conditions and Kudu is supposed to be perfect for bad weather. Hopefully the Trubalance last isnt too big.

    I hate whoever snagged the ravello LHS in 10D from the irregulars list in the first 5 mins (and by hate I mean am very jealous of). Enjoy your purchase and wear in good health.

    I sat on hold at TSM for a while before I got a person. The 10D #8 indy boot was gone or only shown in error......bummer........the 9.5d black shell indy's are kind of tempting but I'm guessing they are gone now too.

    Well I got through to someone at the Shoemart who told me they don't have any of the Seconds shoes right now, and that I should call back on Thursday. He said the email went out a couple of days too early. I wanted to pay right there and then of course, but they weren't having any of it. Annoying.

    Sorry fellas, I purportedly got the #8 Indys and V-tips. Received my email confirmation, so fingers crossed that they ship and are in good shape. Pretty excited.

    I have a pair of tan suede v-tips that I absolutely love, which is why I excited about these #8s.

    the wholeTSM irregulars process is unreliable and fickle at best. I have been lucky a few times when I called and they had what I was looking for so I'm not complaining. [​IMG]

    the emails don't typically go out to everyone at the exact same time. Frequently I see here in this thread that people have received the email but sometimes later the same day or even the following day I will get a list. I have asked for several sizes ranging from 9.5 to 10.5 since depending on the shoe/boot and last my required size could be quite variable. I usually get the 9.5D, 9.5E, and 10D lists. Today for example though I got everything I have ever requested 9.5D, 9.5E, 10C, 10D, 10E, and 10.5D, which I think is a first. Its like playing the lottery imo.......
