    Speaking of factory seconds from ShoeMart...do they really email you guys back?

    From what I've been told, you send them an email requesting all of the seconds they have in your size and they will give you the prices and what they have. I've emailed them twice and never got a reply.

    when you make the request you're subscribing to a list, the email goes out about once a month

    yep that's the way it works, it's usually the first week of the month, but they are really good once your on the list and it sounds like you are of getting it out to you every month. Last months came out on the 11th.

    Best

    Yeah, they're Barrie last. The main difference for the BB shell PTBs is the metal eyelets, IIRC. Certainly no fit difference in my experience. I have the Alden PTB's and the BB PTB's and don't really have any preference between them other than the colors.

    In addition, BB PTBs do not have storm welt unlike the Alden stock model.

    I use a brand called Vasyli. I pronate and a physical therapist recommended them to me. They've helped a great deal.

    After a recent trip to Honolulu, and an impromptu stop in at Leather Soul Waikiki, I can honestly say that I feel like I might have a problem...

    $500 is a SHIT ton to spend on a pair of shoes, but somehow these are all sooo worth it to me.
