You really need to get on a Brannock first to establish the size of your feet. Alden has over 10 different lasts that all fit a little differently and knowing your size is essential. I'd recommend staying with a retailer that has an easy...
Quote: Originally Posted by Two Shoes I posted about a month ago with a pair of 10E Rough Roys that were too big for my feet. I returned them for the next-closest-down size which was a 9D. The length on the big toe seems ok but the outside of my foot feels kinda jammed and my little toes feel kinda jammed. How much will these stretch? On my next pair of Aldens (Turbalance last) should I go up a size or just increase the width? Also, I have a history...
Quote: Originally Posted by miran No, my instep is pretty normal, and maybe it feels a little tight but not noticeably painful like shoes that are too small.

Yes, these are 403s in CXL, but I have other shoes and boatshoes made of CXL, which do not wrinkle to this extent at all. IN fact, to the average guy on the street,...

All my life since i"ve been an adult, I've worn 11D in American shoes and 45.5 (11.5D) in Italian/Swiss shoes, and 10.5 in English shoes. The powers that be determined my trubalance size to be 10D, based on Brannock measurements of my foot. The 403s fit my foot perfectly. The length is perfect, in the sense that my foot just sits in there, it cannot be pushed forward or...

Quote: Originally Posted by borderline What's your opinion about this flaw in my new Ravello LWB. I noticed it after taking some pictures and still haven't worn them. I have been offered a full refund, but I'm not sure how big of a deal it is. What do you think? The medallion is off center on the left shoe. That's too bad about those ravello LWB's. I'd return them now for that flaw will always gnaw at you everytime you wear them. Just my...
