    Forgive the lighting, but my daytrippers had their maiden voyage yesterday. I prepaid, and had to wait three runs to actually get a pair that worked so this day was a long time coming. I'm going to revel in the moment a bit [​IMG]

    Be very careful with sizing on the Barrie last. I'm a European 44 -- which as some of you know, converts to an 11 or a 10.5 depending on the shoe/last. The 10.5 D Alden PTB seemed to fit well in the store. After a few wearings I was swimming. I'm now much happier in a 10D (I tried all the permutations, 10.5C etc.).

    What to do with the 10.5D I bought? They may go up on EBay.

    I wouldn't call that being taken advantage of. If you're dumb enough to pay $4000 for a pair of boots you do not need, then you get what you deserve. Alden's are a luxury, not a life-necessity.

    I really like those. Is that an old JCrew make up?

    I like how the seller flat out LIES and says Ravello Daytripper boots will never be ordered again -- posting as "proof" Leffot's statement that it currently has no rare shell in stock or on order.

    Come to think of it, my financial advisor LIES too. Hummmm.
    For somebody who is paying $4k for a pair of Alden, he is either too rich (or stupid) to really care if the seller is either lying or not.

    Haha, well said. Realistically, the seller will most likely lower prices(need to lower inventory) and still manage to sell it around the #2 price. In that case you won't see much of a sell off. My guess is there are 50 pairs out there between Leffot and DC. Most folks know these aren't made as often, though there's a list out, so they will keep it. Even if you see 3-4 pairs on ebay the price will come down to $1k since you can't claim it's rare anymore. The current seller has a first mover advantage in that way.

    I think there is more pairs than that, probably 72. Plus Kathy already has run number 2 in production and is gearing up for submittal number 3... ;-) Also, don't forget there is the European model made last year, and the 270 degree welt version made for Asia a few years back, so the population is actually much higher than it at first appears...
