The definition of insanity is buying Ravello again and again and getting the same delicious results!

Hi,

Can someone recommend the size of the Cordovan captoe boot on the Grant last that is available at shoemart? I am a 10.5 B on the brannock device but usually wear 9.5 D. Recently tried my first Alden boot on the Barrie last. 9D was short in length and 9.5D felt roomy on my smaller foot. I think 9.5D should be my size on this boot but should I also 10D to be safe? Hesitant to order two sizes because apparently shoemart doesn't accept returns if the cordovan leather is creased during trying of shoes.

Give Kathy at Alden DC a call (202-347-2308). I believe she also offers a Grant last cap-toe boot, and she may be able to accommodate a narrower width. If you can't get 10.5B, then I'd suggest 10C. 9.5D would be a last resort, as it will likely be too short for you. 10D will probably be too wide.

Thank you. I will call her tomorrow. I wear 9.5 D on the 82 last in EG and 9.5 D on the First Avenue boots in Allen Edmonds. Do you still think 9.5 D will be too short on this boot?

where do you live? I'd definitely make the trip somewhere to try on some narrower widths. It is worth the wait to get an optimal fit.

Try 10C, Alden doesn't offer the Grant in B widths.

Alden doesn't have the B widths on the Grant Last... I know, I have inquired about a 10.5B before...
