I'm looking to grab a pair of Alden Brooks Brother's Cordovan wingtips. I believe they are on the park last, but I've never owned Aldens so I'm unfamiliar with them. In Allen Edmonds I'm a size 9D or E in the 5 last, and 9E in the 333 last, and 9D in the 1 last. Would I be able to fit into the Plaza last at size 9? I read it is about .5 size longer than brannock, which I have found the case to be with AE 5 last.
Any help is greatly appreciated.
GREAT shoes in my opinion. They are not on the Plaza last, but rather the M-75. Fit and appearance are very similar to that of the Plaza (which is true-to-size), but perhaps a sminch longer. I bought a #8 pair in 9.5D, my usual size, but gave them to my son because they were a little too long. I have been waiting for a restock for over a year. I spoke to my deep-throat source at Alden, and she said they aren't discontinued, it is just that Brooks is not ordering as much.
