i don't think the size is necessarily effected, but a 360 degree welt can result in a larger heel block than a 270 degree welt which could theoretically impact your gait. #8 with natural edge looks mismatched to me.
alden sf has a plain toe boot in what they call "smooth tobacco chamois". not sure if it's the same as reverse. looks like they have larger sizes too.

For sale is a pair of Alden plain toe boots in #8 shell cordovan, on the plaza last with a commando sole. These are a size 9D, and the general forum consensus is that the plaza last runs true to size. Purchased from J Gilbert a few years ago.

There is some indigo transfer on the upper portion of the shoe, but these are in otherwise great shape. Asking $95 which includes shipping to CONUS. I am open...
