Do you have wide feet? Did you size down? Which indys, are they shell?

Crew website the color looks different in two different pictures, so I'm having trouble pinning down the color.
jcrew has a 20% off online purchases coupon that can be used on the aldens.
Tried these on today at unionmade. Nice boot, but not as nice as the alden cordovans I've purchased. I own two pairs of the 1000 miles that I'm very happy with but at $725 I'd rather give alden my money. IMHO they're priced about $200 above what they should be priced at.
The color isn't quite color 8 on these, at least in the light I was under. It was more burgundy.

Could you post it anyway? It would still help. Thanks.
Not sure about the speed hooks.
