    Hmm, could have sworn that Grant flex captoe came in cigar... I seem to remember Uncle Mac having this boot. One could always get the commando sole resoled, I suppose. Thank you for the link.



    Sleeker Alden lasts are harder to fit, but if you know your size and they fit your foot, they are magnificent.


    my boot is on the plaza last

    Fellow addicts: Spoke with Cathy in DC to ask a question about the pre-order for the shoes mac is sporting above.

    She was just opening boxes with a brand new shipment of Alden Ravello LWBs. [​IMG]

    Oh yes.

    Many were pre-ordered but she did have some sizes available.

    Holla at yer gurl in DC for the shell....


    thank you for the heads up

    very nice. im suprised how dark these considering they are Whiskey. I would have guessed Ravello. Maybe its just the lighting or lack thereof

    Hey do you, or anyone else, know if the pre-order that Alden DC is doing is the EXACT shoe that Mac has on but in boot form?


    As much as I love the shoes that Mac has I think Id perfer to have these...

    ..but I dont know if I'd ever get a chance to snag a pair (Anyone with a 10.5??? Please PM me!) so I might look into getting a pair of the make-up Alden DC is coming out with.

    Those Ravello NST of mrUnicorns are lighter in color that the Whiskey NST that Mac is wearing today. I want a pair of Ravello NST but i'm afraid to order over the internet for fear of getting a light colored pair. When the Shoe Mart has its Alden sale i'm going to call see if they can pick me out a pair of Ravello's with a lot of red tones in them.

    I'm confused, Alden DC is doing a pre-order for a ravello medallion cap toe boot? I thought they were doing a pre-order for the ravello medallion cap toe blucher (which I already have [​IMG]).

    When does Shoemart usually have an Alden sale?

    +1. Not to mention that their inventory on Ravellos are incredibly low as is and have no problem selling at retail.

    Hi folks on Alden thread,

    I recently worked on a scanlation of a shoe dissection article from the Japanese magazine MEN's EX. Basically, those folks dissected a whole bunch of expensive shoes, an Alden V-Tip in Modified Last (Japanese favorite), EG Dover, G&G St.James II, and a JM Weston Golf. lotsa interesting material here. Hope you folks enjoy my translation, not perfect, but should be understandable. Better quality files are attached below. Enjoy [​IMG]
