This is consistent with the other Alden cap toe boots I have, they seem tighter generally than the LWBs so I get the cap toe boots up .5 size.

To make it more interesting, I have found that with a leather sole corodovan wingtip boot 8.5D is comfortable. But when I tried a commando sole corodovan wingtip boot 8.5D was too tight.

CT barrie boots feel tighter to me as well but only when they're brand new. they fit fine after a couple of wears.

Alden of Carmel was the first to offer unique, custom make-ups, and they offered some incredibly beautiful make-ups. Many of those make-ups were on the plaza last. It always offered impeccable service and flawless product too.
[[/I] I was referring to the brown-colored shoes in the top two pictures, which I unsuccessfully tried to copy in to this response.

here's my pair. they were recrafted about a year ago. they came back darker than the original color but look and feel like new.

Really appreciate everyone's help! I found a really clean pair of the Alden x J.Crew shell boots on eBay for a great price in size 8.5 and pulled the trigger, so we'll see. Thank you again for the help!

Got my alden suede tankers in but there seems to be a dark spot on the edge. As if it was burned or something.
