    Alright, so weirdest shoe purchasing experience ever. I went to FedEx tonight to go and pickup my factory seconds from TSM. I went to pick up and was surprised to see a box that was clearly only for one pair of shoes. So I opened them up and it was a pair of Ravello LHSes! To be clear, I put my name on a list at TSM about 14 months ago to get a pair of Ravello LHSes in a special size. I did get notice of production in September, but no warning that they were incoming... Well, what you all want, a few quick pics... More pics will come I am sure. Now to figure out what the heck happened with my seconds!

    No clue how many they ordered (1 or 100)...

    Mdubs-

    Don't you already have a pair of Ravello LHS? LOL that you don't even know what's coming in when. They look good.

    What seconds did you pickup? Cheers.

    I did pick up a pair of Ravellos in December from them during their New-Old Stock random thing. No clue what I am going to do yet... I did order a narrow width, so I figured that I would deal with it *someday* when it became reality. [​IMG] New [​IMG] Old -Mike

    I picked up the Color 8 Dover's from I think Leffot and the Natural CXL Wingtip Boots with Brass Eyelets/Hooks from the seconds list.

    Thanks Beebs! Too bad they were not cheap also. I have had a few pre-orders hit me all at once. I guess I should have known, when I placed them last year around the same time frame...

    Thank you beebs. I've been very lucky so far this year.

    After the last few weeks you can't afford a vacation! You gotta keep working to pay that looming credit card bill...

    These are the 8.5d? This is the1 shoe that is still on my want list. I normally would have kopped them right away but due to my buying hiatus I gave to wait at least 6 months before getting anymore shoes. Still hurts seeing them though.
