I love the antiques!  The chukkas are actually color 8.  They are super dark pair and look black in the certain light.

I'm thinking I'll return these and stick with TSM.


Just put the shoetree in and they will restore instantly...

I bought a 563 Size 10 D.

 

My sizes:

 

RW IR: 10

Wolverine 9,5

Nike: 11 (except Air Force 10,5)

NB: 11

Reebok: 11

Adidas: 10,5

Clarks: 9 UK

Vans 10,5

 

My foot is 11" (27,9 cm).

 

The 563 Alden shoes arrived new from a store called pauw.com (from Netherland), and I thought the shoes was in the physical store cause it was look like tested, like you try on a shoes in a physical store.

 

My question is about size:

 

The shoes has almost perfect fit for me. Maybe a very smal space in the back, cause Aberdeen last (narrow in the front and space in the back).

 

 

 

No socks in pic, even invisible socks.

 

It fits like a globe, but it is the problem.

 

Do you think it will stretch when I use it?

 

I think new shoes would be tight, and with use it will stretch, but I don't know if shell cordovan don't stretch a lot or cause it is a store sample (tested in shop) no more stretch is expect.

 

Regards.

Just passing this along. I just got an email from The Shoe Mart. The link for their Alden seconds (after creating an account and logging in) is: 

 

https://www.theshoemart.com/alden-exclusive

 

From there, you can select your size, etc.

Unfortunately, they haven't added anything new.  This is still residual stock that was released 2 weeks ago.

Yeah, I caught that typo on my IG account, but forgot to fix it here, which is because I usually copy and paste the text from my IG to here. :-)

Sorry that you passed up on these. They are a really interesting and cool makeup.

Summer shoe.. My first ever Alden Suede makeup! Was very hesitant on the Flex Sole after a nasty dance with Leydon Chukka, turns out, they were too narrow hence the uncomfort to extreme. These are D width, if I ever order the Unlinded Chukka again it will be TTS plus up one width.

Glad to see that you are enjoying your Suedes. They are a great makeup for sure!

You may have a slightly different definition of casual than some others here... :-) They Chukkas look great!

They are looking good my friend. I always like the Color 8/Antique LWB, but can not rationalize it with the fact that I have every Shell color LWB and have the 975 and Cigar/Antique already.

Shell is famous for not stretching actually. Shell is so desirable because of its shine and durability, which comes from the dense pore structure on that part of the hide. That dense structure makes stretching shell very difficult.

Wow, those look great as well! In this one reply I got to see Cigar, whiskey and Ravello PTBs from Mac! :-)

To me the fit looks good and sounds pretty good from your narrative.
