Not a downside; if you replace boot laces with a speedhooked model, I recommend 46".
They don't make it, but have them. They are custom oem Alden for modified last. They gave me a pair when I bought my modified indys.
They do usually stock e widths; not sure about eee. I doubt that.
Alden thread New Years Resolution: cease the use of the word "versatile." Or maybe I should stop looking at this thread.
I agree - ironically they look more "lux" to me; the shell's plastic-y appearance doesn't work as well as the matted cowhide that will undoubtedly patina well. The saddle color is killer.I think those comipel hides should go for goodyear welted shoes (didn't EP hint at an in-house shoemaking project?).
Never cared about shoes until:I was on a plane a few years ago and saw a side profile of j.crew's 403. I hadn't seen anything that boss before, so I started searching the interwebs. Found this terrible place, along with ask andy and superfuture. I actually have regrets spending the money I have on shoes since then if I were to add it all up. But now I'm settling into a sweet spot, and have slowed down considerably. Alden just makes so many cool shoes and boots - honestly...
For your consideration: Alden AF43 Black Shell Cordovan Boots, size 10.5D. These are on the Trubalance Last, so size as you would Indy boots; many say 1/2 down. If you have a wider forefoot, go true-to-size. Hardly any wear on these. I am cleaning out shoes I don't wear, and these need to go. Condition is as shown (exceptional condition) and soles have not much wear. Price includes shipping to contiguous 48 United States; for elsewhere, inquire.
I disagree, totally. If you have a low instep, tongue pads are a must sometimes, and do not degrade the wearing experience.
Chippewa Heritage Boots, size 10.5D, ending in a few hours, Boondocker and Black Captoe
Breck, do you have experience with this? Trubalance and Redwing last #8 are a perfect 10.5D for me, and I was going to order a pair of SD on the regular #55 last in the same size. I have read that the SD last is close to Trubalance....
