    I don't think it is interest that is causing these to not get made. ravello boots fly off the shelves whenever they are made, its the supply that is much harder.

    though, getting in on pre-order does make it more likely that you will actually be able to buy a pair

    I realize that the supply of whiskey and ravello shell are limited. I think it's 500 hides for 1 that are made into whiskey. Nothing wrong in trying influence a retailer to do a makeup that we are interested in. If Tom is willing to do another SF special I'd be in.

    AOC AF107? Very nice and enjoy wearing them.

    AF107, yeah. Still trying them on. They fit great at the beginning of the day, so we'll see about the end. Also, my camera really makes my socks look green. (they're black)

    Who decided that we have to contact Kathy for one and Steven for the other? Not trying to be difficult but I'm a little curious how this fell into place.

    Here's how: Last week I was speaking to Kathy and she asked what special make-ups would be on my wish list. I mentioned a Whiskey Indy/commando sole.

    She said she had been mulling that one over and would consider it if there was enough interest.

    So, I posted the thought here and asked if anyone had interest, and if they did, then to call Kathy and express that interest in the hopes of getting this boot made up.

    Let's hope she decides to make it !

    I have called Alden DC (Kathy) today and expressed interest in the Indy Whisky boots also. She said she is getting lots of calls. Let's hope it happens. Cheers!

    Question for anyone that jumped on the Blackbird pre-order for the "Alden Summer Shoe". I ordered a pair in the reverse tobacco and thought I remember Blackbird saying they were expected in April and here we are in June. I know that they are at the mercy of Alden but...
    So the question is, does anyone know anything about the delivery on these? All I've received from my inquiries is the same not in yet response.

    Not to beat a dead horse over quality control issues, but I noticed this on one of the blogs. I'm beginning to think I'm insane because I continue buying Aldens even though they keep letting defects like this reach their retailers. How does the person doing the hand sewing not toss this in the 2nds pile?

    I wonder if that was a Photoshop error, because that imperfection isn't in any of the other pictures in that blog entry.

    That actually looks like a bad photoshop touch up job, not a defect on the shoe.

    Anyways, if you want absolutely perfectly made shoes Alden is probably not for you.

    ............... How does the person doing the hand sewing not toss this in the 2nds pile?




    ......I continue buying Aldens even though they keep letting defects like this reach their retailers.

    Apparently because of a very loyal fan base that cuts Alden LOTS of slack.....
