1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    I got the same message from her yesterday. It looks like they are going off strictly their waiting list.

    Yes, it is comical, particularly when it is a makeup in which you have no interest. These feeding frenzies amuse me so.

    Thanks for clarifying Tifosi. Didn't quite understand why I was quoted.

    Well, believe it or not but looks like I got on the list too late (4 months ago). No pair for me.

    I should be happy with my Leffot #8 NST once they arrive even more.

    Sorry to hear that :/

    Hopefully these orders come faster? What number were you on the wait list?

    I have no shot. I'm 5th or 6th on the list. I'm still excited. It's like playing the powerball.

    Guys,

    It will take then a few days to reach out to everyone on the list. Don't freak out if you haven't heard yet. The shoes haven't even been received into inventory yet

    Apparently the 9D list is 12 deep and they made 4 pairs of boots.

    Good luck to everyone waiting for a pair of the Cap toe boots, like Ryden said though just be patient and let them hake their way through the list in the next few days. I am sure it is a mad house there right now. They are trying to call but I assume the phone is also ringing off the hook.




    Edit: Cigar should also not be this hard to get... with that said, I might have to put my name down on a wait list lol

    Do any of you have experience with the fit of the Van last? I'm getting conflicting info on sizing and wanted your opinion. The Alden of Caramel site says the Van last fits 1/4 to 1/2 size bigger than your normal shoe size, but a rep from TSM informed that it fits TTS. I wear a 9D on the Hampton last and an 8.5 on the trubalance last

    I have 7.5D in the Barrie, Trubalance and Van.

    Van is nicely snug sockless, Barrie fits great, Trubalance fits slightly big but great with a boot sock.

    I have a low vamp and narrow heels and measure between 8-8.25 on the Brannock

    I expressed strong interest about a year ago in 9D. I got an eye roll and was told the list was so deep, why bother?

    Here are a couple of pictures that I snapped really quick -- apologies for the crappy pics (I'm no mdubs!). No sunlight here at all, so I tried some different spots to get accurate pictures. The flash throws the color off a little.

    Thank goodness I have the Leffot Tanker coming to make me feel better about not having those, I found out about the cap toe way too late in the game to be able to get in on this round.

    Amazing boot!
