Church's Sahara vs Alden Suede Chukka - Page 2

post #16 of 20
I just picked up a pair of the Church's... A great pair of boots, and on discount from Kurt Geiger...

Reviving this old thread--I'm considering suede chukkas for the summer and others must be as well.

People have spoken highly of the Sahara but where are those who favor the Alden suede chukkas w/the flex welt? Has anybody worn or tried both? I have the Sahara on a crepe sole and like it very much, but I need a Sand suede and may try the Alden's.

Price considerations aside, what are the best attributes of each?

I'll second all of those questions.

Did you end up getting the Aldens? I'm considering these beautiful Church's chukkas, one in sand and one in Maracca (from Frans Boone).

Any thoughts on how these compare with Aldens?

Who carries Church's?

The aldens are on my list but I still need to try them on. I have high arches and I'm not sure the leydon last will even work with my feet.

Of the church's pictured I love the sand pair with the brick sole. I like the other color but might prefer it w/their leather sole option. In general, I really like the church's upper a lot, a bit moreso than the Aldens. But I prefer Alden's flex-welt sole.

Not sure where you can get the church's.

I thought this thread might be ripe for renewal...

I'm also interested in the Church Ryder (crepe sole). My issue is that my feel are generally between a US size 12.5D and 13D. I have owned the Church Perth in a UK 12F and found them unbearable - I had to give them away in the end. I spoke with Herring Shoes who carry a UK 12F, 12G and 13F. The Perth was the 73 Last while the Ryder is the 81. Herring told me that while the 73 is shorter, it has a fuller toe box, and that a wider size would help - they suggested I went for the US size 12G. I'm thinking I might want to go for the UK 13F though...

For reference, I wear the RL Marlow wingtip in US 13D and it fits very well.

If I'm going to order these from the UK I want to make sure I get the sizing right. Any help and hints on sizing would be greatly appreciated. Cheers!
