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 think I would have paid premium for these if given some time to stew.

    Looking splendid! Do you wear those in sunlight much? This is exactly what I want my pair to look like, but they are still very dark. I hate to just leave them sitting outside in direct sunlight, but that might be what it takes.

    Thanks. My shoefie session actually got interrupted by a coworker so I posted what I had haha.



    Thanks DV. They went for a little bit more than I had hoped but I always told myself I would bid high if some ever came around. Your pair is what made me fall in love with these.



    I actually opened up my search criteria to find them. I just ran "Alden" through the eBay search bar and set a size restriction of 9, 9.5 & 10. I believe these would be a bit big for your feet at 10D Barrie. I'm in between 9.5 and 10 in Barrie so I figured with them being oxfords and my high instep that 10 would be best. They fit great!



    Thanks.

    I believe it's only Leffot, and you'll have to get in (quick) on the next pre-order. Sign up for their emails so you know when it'll happen.

    Another data point on a long discussed subject.

    Recently picked up Alden for BB unlined shell lhs in 8.5d. Could barely get them on my feet - way too small.

    I have a great fit in my 8.5d ultimate Indy boots.

    I have tried on Van last lhs 8.5d before and they fit great...but these Bb models are way smaller

    Thanks again to Leffot. Loving these.

    Today I realized that the plaza last is the best fitting last on me. Now I am interested in getting some shell boots on this last. Any help with listing some shell models on this last?

    Thank you..
