    Fantastic!! I love the waterlock sole. I wish I could find a color 8 chukka boot with that oiled sole. Do they make such an animal? My suede chukka has that sole but I haven't seen it in the shell/barrie version.

    I'm telling ya - it's RandomKoreanDude. With everybody else she's nice, interested in talking about shoes. RKD stops by and she has no recollection.

    I'm thinking it's because he's Random (its not the Korean or the Dude things).

    Thought.
    So guess what? Six pairs of Aldens since October and nary a nod of acknowledgment from the unwashed masses until I start neglecting my short wing boots (Ravello, thank you) -- including major scuffage and non-buffing -- and they begin drawing compliments like nothing else has before. I've been wearing them with some cuffed APC New Standards. So for you guys with your gallery-lit Aldies sealed in Permamint, you're missing out. 'Just sayin'.

    Fantastic, man. Can you post what size you are in those shoes, along with your Barrie last size? I understand that Grant can go either way on TTS or size-down. Thanks! EDIT: Also, where'd you snag those? I know that LS just did a preorder for a #8 shortwing, but it was on the Barrie so I passed.
