i like their shape better. although, i prefer straight caps normally. fit seems better, too.
This is a more classic round shape, whereas the previous are a bit more agressive (soft square).
Yes, the fit is pretty good, but not better than the previous shoes (see PiedBeau post ), maybe you have this impression because the creases were accentuated as I was not standing up.

Or it would be great, this would mean cheap bespoke for me
I really like the shape of the last and sole edge on these. The shape of the sole itselft is almost G&G like in terms of the slightly agressive swoop of the sole at the instep and the angle of the transition to the heal area.
Combo is nice as well. Although your next combo with the gray and lavender is even better.
OK - So I've decided not to send these Alden's back to the adoption agency. I've put some inserts in and think I may be able to deal with the slight extra volume. And if not I'll sell them on later.
