as a braves fan, i have zero clue as to how this series with the dodgers is going to go. on one hand, they effectively treated the last 3 weeks of the season as spring training part 2 and played themselves right out of home field advantage. on the other, they've overcome injuries, a lack of a real ace, and brutal offense from the starting cf and 2B, and still had the second best record in the league. in any event, i am not feeling optimistic at the prospect of facing...
just for kicks i called alden sf to ask about the possibility of getting a makeup on an A/D as opposed to B/D. no dice. i also asked which lasts have the most narrow heel, explaining my struggles with the barrie last and the answer was "just about any one except the barrie, you'd probably want to avoid that." lol.
^great post. keeping this thread alive with hopes of someone having some good luck do any shoemakers actually use a combination last where you can choose the combination outside of mtm or bespoke, i.e. an A/D instead of a B/D? i think alden used to, but won't anymore. my foot measures a 9D on the bannock heel to toe, but almost a 10D heel to ball, with narrow heels and a low volume - so similar to others here. tongue pads help, but not greatly. inserts usually don't as...
rft: if i can ever find a pair derbies that are on a last that feature a normal width forefoot but a narrower heel area i will buy 5 pairs more shoes: can anyone recommend a good cobbler in seattle? i've used emerald city shoe repair for small stuff, but i need a re-sole on a pair of boots and i don't know if they're up for it
and on a different last than barrie if i remember correctly, maybe aberdeen? i know sid mashburn in atl had an un-advertised ravello makeup in very limited sizes last time in was in there 6 months or so of said 25 y.o. chukkas? i love pics of new makeups as much as the next guy, but this thread seriously needs an infusion of older and well worn shoes.
mid 60's degree fall day = context roy in snuff suede (+ unnoticed headphone cord) i was on the fence at first, but glad i kept them
to folks that have the alden insoles, what number did you call? the general alden one? i called alden sf this morning after no answer from alden hq, and they were completely unaware of the existence of alden branded insoles. also, the insoles look like they have a good heel cup on them, is that so?
I have the 29634F and it is indeed on barrie (i got a c width and there's no way i could wear a c width leydon). the suede is most likely also barrie, however, NRO had a suede blucher this summer on the leydon (it was lined)edit: looks like NRO also did a cxl ptb on leydon, but it likely has a different style #
to the clemson guy looking for suede, you might want to consider that the stock chukka is unlined, and i found my feet got cold during the winter with those. but you might be in s. carolina with limited cold stretches.
can a shoe be "relasted" to a narrower width during a re-sole? i'm assuming not as there are probably a dozen things that would be thrown off, just curiousalso... [[SPOILER]]
