I picked these Aristocraft spades soles up off eBay but the seller misdescribed them as 11D when they had "C" inside the wall . Gutted I was! I tried stretching them but they ended up a snug 10.5 tops. Not big enough I liked them so much I hoped to copy same.

Perhaps the Handmades , but I wouldn't say their Aristocrafts or Crown Aristocrafts were. I have some vintage ones, and they're lovely shoes, but not better than AE or (I would believe) Alden. I'd say they were probably as good.
