Maybe you all can help me out please. Where may I find size info on the different alden lasts please? Also, if one just knows the model number Â will a current catalogue tell which last it is built on? ( I only briefly browsed the Alden website btw.) At present, I am looking at 2 pair of Alden Shell cordovan shoes. I have never owned Alden before so Â I am very ignorant other than what little I have read here and at Mr. Andy's forums. One is built on the Aberdeen last.Do I understand correctly that this is one of Aldens largest lasts and many times, for a proper fit, one needs to go ONE-HALF SIZE smaller? The second shoe is a size 10.5 E model 986. I have no idea of the last or how the fit is. ( 300 brand new ) . My concer is if it runs on the large side, as I beleive the Abordeen last does, it will be too big. No matter how good the price ... "if the shoe doesn't fit.... dont wear it" Thanks so much for your help sirs. Respectfully, Â John G. I am most familar with Allen Edmonds shoes and lasts so any correlation to them would be most helpful.
