there might be a pair of 8.5Ds for sale next week...i pre-ordered both the black indy on commando from leffot (received today btw) and the ultimate indy from LS, both in 8.5D. i based sizing on my snuff suede roy boots which fit ok (easily my most worn aldens over the past 9 months) however, i suspect a 9C might be be a better fit given my more recent experience with the modified last in 9C. i think i might sell the ultimate indies when they come in, return the black...
some great info by mdubs in the past few pages. and nice ptbs from hkpm. lazy sunday post... my current rotation consists of two shoes and two boots. i've had many others along the way that i sold off due either to poor fit or wasn't feeling the style. i've also got two indy's on pre-order (one black calf one brown cxl, both on commando) L-R #8 cordovan plain toe boot, 9D plaza last on commando sole, J. Gilbert #8 cordovan unlined u-tip, 9C modified last, single leather...
unlined #8
exact same experience. was recently there and left with two pair. i measure a 9D but with a low volume foot with long arch, and they fit me in a 9C and i walked several miles out to dinner afterwards with no problems. i am completely satisfied even though the exchange rate blows and i will likely never see that VAT refund.
anyone else get in on the black indy on commando pre-order from leffot? should in any day now
i'd probably go danite
i'll be in the need of a new rubber heel on a pair of roy boots soon, i was going to have a local cobbler replace with something. however, i've read/heard that sometimes alden won't do restoration (i'd like to have them do the re-sole when it is time for that) if there has been previous work done to the shoe. although I am assuming this wouldn't apply to something minor like a heel replacement. can anyone speak to this?
visited paris last week and stopped by anatomica, picked up a couple of makeups on the modified last... unlined u-tip, #8 unlined snuff ptb both 9C
For sale is a pair of Alden six-eyelet chukka in brown suede, with antique edge trim and commando sole. These are size 9D on the plaza last, which generally runs true to size. Purchased from J. Gilbert last fall. These are just slightly too roomy for me. I sprayed them with suede protector when I got them. Worn sparingly, and as such, are in very good condition. These retail for $595 when new, and are sold out in this size at the moment. Asking $345 which includes...
For sale is a pair of Alden model 4075H, straight tip boots in black cordovan, on the barrie last with a double leather sole. These are a size 8.5D, and the general forum consensus is that the barrie last runs about a half size large. Purchased from Alden SF a few years ago. However, I don’t wear black shoes often so these saw limited action. I got a rubber topy put on when I purchased them, so there is plenty of life left in the soles and heels. These currently retail...
