AF53s yesterday (and today), down by the water. Got a nice solid mud layer, followed by some sand to cement onto them. Too bad shell cordovan is only good for dress boots...

FYI, The Shoe Mart is trying to blow out their Neubuck Alden seconds. Not everyone is willing to purchase white or off white at this time of year. You can see their ad by clicking here. Just in case these are something you want for next spring.

Your "shell abusing" pics always make me want to wear my shells harder.

Can someone who owns both the Barrie last shoes and the AE 65 last shoes mention their sizes? I am a 10 D in the Allen Edmond 65 last which is a very good fit. On Alden Barrie wingtip shoe, I chose 9.5 C after trying both 9.5 D and 10 C (both 9.5 D and 10 C had heel space). 9.5 C fits very good on my small foot but presses the pinky toe of my large foot. I have been wearing 9.5 C for three months now but the shoe hasn't stretched. I was in New York in June and went to Alden Madison. The sales rep said that 9.5 C was my best size and slightly stretched the tight fitting shoe. He was of the opinion that this will stretch naturally after few months and 9.5 D will become lose after the same period. So, I should stick with 9.5 C in the Barrie last. However, I been wearing the shoe for 3 months now but the fit hasn't approved.

I feel that I should try 9.5 D and wear thick socks. For reference, I recently tried Aberdeen NST in sizes 9.5 D (tight in the toe box with toes cramped) and 10 D (heel space with slightly more than usual toe box room). I have now ordered 10 C to try from an online store which I should get in few days.

Thank you


I wear a 7.5 EEE in the 65 last and 8 D in the barrie. If your shoes hasn't stretch in 3 months, then i don't see it stretching anymore. especially if its shell.

I'm 10.5D in multiple pairs of AE 65's and 10.5D (maaaaybe C) on a Brannock.  I am a 10D in Barrie boots with maybe a C working, 10D in Barrie shoes for sure.

Those are looking just amazing Don! Glad that fall has settled in for you... We are getting hit by the Santa Ana's this week, pretty brutal.
