    How did you get the 20% off just now that you mentioned in the last page?

    I signed up for the catalog, that's it. I got coupons and this time around it was 20% and worked on the Aldens. Now I've got to wait 2 months.

    okok now does anyone know the last of this shoe?


    My first thought is also Barrie or Grant, would know better seeing the sole. Grant would have a more pronounced curve around the instep.

    Get some better angles.

    My best guesses at this point would be:

    Barrie
    Grant


    Those look to be on the Aberdeen last. My first guess would have been the Snap last, but the last looks to be elongated similar to the Aberdeen.

    Doesn't the toe box look big for Aberdeen?

    I don't think so. Compare it to here:

    Alden Aberdeen last

    WTF? They send me the catalog and I never got any coups! 2 months, huh? Thought their Alden's were in stock if the size was listed on the site.

    This is a standard for all of the shoes he sells. I probably wouldn't want to eat with that China if I was ever invited over for a meal. [​IMG]

    I wish it were that way for the 8.5's, everything else is ready to go. Oh well, more time for me to save up! [​IMG]

    I'm watching those shoes as well. I'm sure we aren't the only ones. I almost allowed my finger to hit the BIN button this morning but my brain eventually won the fight and I clicked the little X in the top right of my screen instead. I have two new pairs of Alden shells coming my way already (if fedex can ever get the truck out of memphis).

    Yes, that you can rule out Barrie, as it is too narrow through the instep - much more likely that it is Aberdeen or similar last that runs TTS.
