Ironically, I have a question concerning a #8 Tassel Loafer I picked up from eBay. These loafers crease and fold in a similar way on both shoes but my right foot is borderline D/E and accentuates the pattern from the previous owner resulting in bowing.
Can a cobbler do anything to fix this? If i send them in for Alden Restoration, will this fold pattern go away when the shoes are relasted?
sadly, I'd cut your losses. loafers are the hardest, imo, to get fitted off the fly. even moreso when preworn.
I'd spend some time in a local (hopefully) to you store of a retailer that offers the manuf you are interested in. get fitted professionally, buy a pair there to support them for their help, and then you'll have a better idea of what to look for in the future..
