The 975 isn't stocked anywhere in 7B, and is 100% non-returnable in that size.

Joe, assuming you have already checked, but if not, the shoemart was able to order a 10 E of the 975 for me under their normal sales terms.

Thanks for the tip. I'll take a look, but I'm not optimistic. There are basically two classes of sizes that Alden offers - sizes that they produce for every run (easily obtained and returned), and sizes they can add if you pay upfront. Since a 10E is fairly normal, I'd expect it was the former. Something like a 15EEE or a 7B is another story. Just the joys of having a foot size 10 standard deviations off the mean.

PSA - Haberdash (Chicago) has a Memorial Day weekend sale code of MEMORIAL25 which does seem to work for their Aldens:

They don't have a lot, but if there is something there you've been looking for, I'd say go for it.

$200 down, I believe. Balance upon shipment.

Does anyone know if these boots from The Shoe Mart

 

http://www.theshoemart.com/alden-mens_5_eyelet_plain_toe_boot_barrie_last_snuff_suede/pvc-ald-mxs-d5805h_ald_m_5_eyelet_plain_toe_boot_barrie_last.html

 

 

 

are the same as these from Brooks Brothers?

 

http://www.brooksbrothers.com/Suede-Boots/MH00451,default,pd.html

 

 

 

I'm in the market for a snuff suede plain toe boot and ordered the Brooks Brother boots a few weeks ago but returned them because the color was too dark compared to the pictures and just didn't love the toe shape, too bulbous compared to some of my other Alden boots.  Now looking at these from The Shoe Mart but based off the pictures they seem similar to Brooks Brothers boots so trying to get some info on the ones from Shoe Mart if anyone has seen them or handled them.  Also, any other retailers have a snuff suede plain toe in stock?

^^^ Email Alden asking what last the BB boots are on, and do the same with SM if it's not listed.

the BB's are on trubalance (crepe+TruB+suede=comfort!), the shoemart ones are on the (relatively) sleeker barrie last

The idea of upfront payment, a wait of who knows how long, and no return combined with an inability to even try on a shoe in that size prior to purchase... it's a tough pill to swallow. Has anyone gone through this? My best fitting Aldens are a pair on the Hampton in size 7.5C, but those are a bit too wide (I can wear athletic socks under my dress socks). I'd like some shoes that actually fit!

 

Joe,

 

I hate to say this but AE is really good at having weird sizes available, and having an incredible return policy as well.

 

The downside is that they ARE NOT Alden...

 

Go figure.

 

Anyway, @mdubs I am sure could offer some assistance.

Thanks for the suggestion, but AE's size availability is no better in my size and they charge a special makeup fee that Alden does not. There's no returns, as usual, and the probably of getting a pair with a defect is way too high. My single experience with AE shell was enough to make me swear off them for good - even though I find their LWB to be more attractive in some ways. I may just get an F-last Vass LWB in one of their shell colors nod[1].gif
