I have been trying to mail order a pair of the Alden norwegian bluchers and am having trouble finding the correct size. I tried a pair of the standard norwegian #2210 in a 10.5 D which are on the Aberdeen last. Â These were just a little tight Â and I decided I liked the AF39 model a lot more. I then ordered a pair of the Alden Fan shoes AF39 in size 11D with the Plaza last. Â The width was fine, but the length was too long. Does the Plaza last run longer than the Aberdeen? Both the models are shell cordovan. Â Does this stretch at all in the width? Â I have always been a firm believer that if the shoes don't feel comfortable out of the box, things won't improve later on, but I could be wrong. Finally, any recommendations about a 10.5D or a 10.5E on the AF39? Â Thanks in advance. Â I did try Adam at the store and didn't get a definite answer.
