    They won't be branded as a SuFuxLS boot (due to lack of interest), but the last I heard (12/13), the perforated toe version is still being made. Only 2 people expressed interest in the plain toe version so that version isn't getting made. I'm not sure when he's finalizing the order, but I'm guessing it'll be soon.

    Yes... the new SuFu is a real eyesore... but I'm addicted enough to that thread that I keep going back.


    Nice, thanks for the response... I ordered the perf ones so thats good news!

    Definitely get cordovan Indys.
    But I wouldn't wear any Indy with a suit.

    These ones? http://www.aldenshoe.com/cat_ortho_spe_500.htm

    I'd check with Moulded Shoe in NYC first, as they tend to specialize in Alden's orthopedic lasts, but Alden's own stores would be good places to call as well.

    Crap, I was thinking of something else. Now I need to remember. Leather Soul Hawaii had them for a bit last year.

    Does anyone know if the whiskey shade will be released for spring? Is this a color that comes out seasonally or just when Horween has the supply? The shoes I saw in this color last summer seem to be unavailable...

    It depends on what you are looking for. I have seen a fair amount of Whiskey but nothing in a wing tip which is what I want. I purchased a pair of Alden Plain Toe Blucher Oxford on the Barrie last in Whiskey shell from Alden in DC lat week. You can call and speak with Joe. He was beyond (<-oops! I mean in a good way!) helpful. [​IMG]

    regarding the whiskey shade, I would love some longwings too. Or cap or plain toe high boots if they were ever done in that color...

    I hope to see some Longwings at some point. There is a dude selling some for $1,200 but they have not sold and I assume will not sell.
