Cordovan will get lighter in sunlight. However, the shell has usually been tanned to the dark colour for a reason: to hide imperfections and blemishes. The lighter colour will reveal these spots. Here's an article from Horween on the subject: [link]

I know I am being a hypocrite here, but here goes: Does Alden carry a last which has more width in the forefoot, and less at the heel? 11D in barrie/trubalance works for me, but I think my true size would be a 10.5 B/E. Would a different last fit better? Modified perhaps?

I have a pair of Alden Longwings on the Barrie last in 10D which fit perfectly. They are calfskin. Until I got orthodics. Now they are a bit tight. Pinch the outside toes a little. And a little straining on the lace up. What's my better option if I want to buy another pair, this time in shell : Going up to a 10E on...

I was thinking of having my cobbler install this on one of my commando soled boots, has anyone else tried this?
It's not much, but my collection currently looks like this: Chromexcel NST, Color #8 LW AF85, AF64, 403
