Funny that you ask me that. Mine has been worn once... Unfortunately, their 10E size just does not agree with my 10.5C foot and so I am selling my pair, more specifically I sold my pair today...

How did you even take possession of a 10E?! Were you hoping it would fit with inserts or did you acquire just because it was so rare?

Hoping it would work... I could wear it, but I have a new policy that if its not the perfect fit, it goes out the door. Regardless of style or rarity.

Now, I need to get some Nano spray on these so I can wear them.  They've been in the box for close to a month.

 

Any where in Toronto where I can get some Nano?

hey classy, leatherfoot isn't carrying the nano ATM. They have the Saphir invulner, which works exactly the same. Bought it and used on my son's JCrew suede boots and they work nicely. Got mine almost 2 weeks ago but they had lots IIRC.

Is it against the rules to post for-sale shoes here? I have a couple of pairs of new whiskey gems to sell, I think. Maybe a third pair too.

Thanks. For some reason I had a brain fade and was thinking AoNY.

Kind of the same thing.... Madison Ave, in NYC.

 

And yes it is against the rules to post things for sale, here. Just add them to your signature and everyone will see them.

I would buy that in a heartbeat.

Wish I had been more alert a couple of years ago and bought the EpauletxCarmina Salinger double monk in saddle shell. I guess that one was a one-off and won't be made again?

I think that once shell levels return for Carmina that will be made again. Maybe not by EP, though.

Kwanon,

I know this is not exactly what you mean, but mdubs (beautious pics copyright mdubs!) and other SFers had a medallion cap toe in ravello a little while back.

That is a great shoe! Sometimes I miss mine.

 

I think that is the closest the OP will get to an Alt Wien in cigar or ravello by Alden. Those are on Plaza as opposed to Barrie (which is a plus in my book).

I posted similar question a month or so ago and got several good suggestions. I'm an 11D/C width on the branock...literally right in the point between those 2 widths. Both feet measure in width by a ruler 4.0625. My right foot is just a hair short of an 11 length. Left is spot on 11 length. Moderately high archs. Ive tried: 10D to short, 10.5D heel slips and slightly to much volume. 11C has been the most comfortable but still slight heel slip. But my foot seems to "fit" into the 11C the best. But I am cinching the laces pretty close together. And seems still to much volume. I feel like the 11 length is good bc it feels like it fits into place. Should I venture into an 11B? Those are not readily available. So I'm scared to pull the trigger. I really love Alden's LWB style and am pretty disappointed by my failures. Any suggestions would be helpful and please realize I have read every thread on this topic...so in not being lazy...looking for similar experiences by others and thoughts/suggestions...thanks in advance! Marcus

The Barrie is an odd fitting last. The heel cup is proportionately wide relative to the toe box. Move on and stop wasting money. There are other longwings out there, on more normal fitting lasts.
