Argentino, at the risk of opening up another tangent ITT. Are any of your Alden's in the Barrie Last? I assume your Indy's are TruBalance.
Just wondered what size you were and if you had either Nike Free Run 3s or Wolverine 1k? and how did you size in them.
It gets particularly complicated (when dealing with UK sizes) in that some manufacturers (LLBean / Quoddy and others) state UK size as US size - half size
whereas others like Wolverine or Nike take UK size as a whole size less than the US size. This is compounded by the fact that the one time I have tried on
TruBalance, it was unclear if the box was marked as a UK size or a US size.
The box said 8 and i assumed it was the UK size, but it wasnt clear and the SA was trying to say it was the US size, buti doubt it as 8 is the same UK size as the 1ks
the SA was also selling me on them (405s) as "horsehide"
to add another layer of puzzle here are some (i assume TruBalance) in an E width
where it states UK = US
perhaps useful it also says UK 8 & US 8 = 28cm
--- of course i dont know if this is an insole or outsole measurement
This will all probably be solved by a trip to the states (not just for the Alden, ....but
however the reason i ask is that if stock and coupon codes combine i would probably take the risk on the JCrew Barrie D width captoes in #8 or maybe a second from show mart in #8 indy TruBalance
tl;dr halp ?
