Alden size comparison with AE and JM

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

Hey everyone, been lurking quite a bit on this forum, but this is my first post. I found a pair of Alden 1672 Monk Strap shoes on ebay in 9.5 B/D but do not know if they would fit me well or not since I have never tried on Aldens before. Is an Alden in this last and 9.5b/d comparable in size to an AE Mcallister 9.5E or JM Melton 9.5D, which both fit me very well?

 

Thanks

You'll need to know which Alden last that shoe is on (sorry I don't off the top of my head). The Barrie is accepted to fit 1/2 size large, but I don't think it is actually any wider. The Plaza last will likely fit like an AE 9.5D, not E. You should post this in the Alden thread in SW&D.

An Alden Monk is probably going to be on the Aberdeen or Plaza last. More likely those are on the Aberdeen.
They both fit more or less true to size (depending upon your definition of true to size).
See http://www.alden-of-carmel.com/index.cfm/fitting.htm
Those are size 9.5D/B BTW. The B is the heel width.

thanks for both of your help! I think I may give them a try and see how they fit and resell it on ebay if it is no good
