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.

    You're going to really love them. I would definitely say if anyone is on the fence about purchasing the Naval boots they should go for it. They've aged the best out of any of my shell shoes/boots.

    I was thinking about them, but too close to my LS Jumpers. Now if they do a per-order on he black Nacala, I'm in.

    A box of Cigars arrived at my house this afternoon from Alden DC.

    No photo filters or tricks, just outdoor shots with a bright but overcast sky.

    Absolutely love this color of Cigar. It's a bit different than my Cigar Indys.

    Given my feet, I have never had to pre-order a large size, but I believe I understand Leffot's policy on this: they will take on pre-order a non-stock size, but you may have to pay full price up front instead of the 20% deposit required for stock sizes. I would, however, call Leffot to see what they would do because my experience is they work with their customers.

    Hello everyone, long time lurker here. I'm not sure whether I should be proud or ashamed to admit this, but I have read almost the entire contents of this thread over the last couple of years. I'm joining up now as I am very interested in the Leffot Naval Boot pre-order opportunity, but would like some advice on sizing. Unfortunately for me, I have very wide feet. My size tends to vary depending on who is doing the measuring, but I wear the widest shoes I can get generally. I have a pair of Allen Edmonds in 9.5 5E width which barely fit, to give you an example.

    Anyway, I already have three pairs of Aldens: the 907 in 10 EEEE (Hampton) which I have worn for about two years, the 405 Indys in 9.5 EEE (TruBalance) which I rarely wear, and a fairly new pair of 990s in 10 EEE (Barrie). I am leaning toward trying to order the Navals in 10 EEE, as the 990s are also on the Barrie last and tend to fit the best out of the three pairs on an average day, with average thickness dress socks. The 10 length might be a bit long for me, as my toe tends to end about an inch and a quarter from the front of the shoe. But it seems like that is the only way to get the width I need.

    Thoughts? Should I go with a 10 EEE, or try to see if a 9.5 EEEE is possible? I had read somewhere that shell boots in wider sizes were not possible, but I hope this is not the case.

    P.S. I really enjoy reading this thread. Thanks for keeping things interesting, and with great pictures too!

    Without a doubt. Now I am curious if the price will be duplicated or not

    Now the equation is $3k for someone else's stank-ass feeted shoes v. two (maybe 1 1/2 depending on the high end shoe maker) pair of EG, etc. shoes made to fit your feet and designed to look how you want them.

    I'd rather have 3 EG that aren't made for my feet.
