post #114016 of 122416

After looking at so many color #8 pics, I was shocked how dark they were when I first unboxed them to try on.  Only a harsh iphone flash pic revealed the color.

Its part of the beauty of #8.  It goes from almost black to reddish eggplant in the direct light.

My biggest complaint with #8 is that they are too dark sometimes - I know color and Alden fans are polar opposites - that being said wear them a ton and more red tones will appear- at least my pair has.

i'd go with medium too.  my alden is 7.5 and i have both small and medium sizes.  Tried them both, and small fits better for me.

Medium feels like its way too tight.

Great looking LHS. A great and classic model. The BB and Alden Stock model are both great options.

Very beautiful Indy boots. Yes, they are fantastic looking out of the box, but they are shoes and were made to be worn. Take them out and enjoy them!

Yeah, color 8 can vary significantly in its starting darkness. It's a beautiful color and after a few wears, they should lighten a bit. Especially if you methodically brush and care for them.

Thanks. Just the standard Alden 2211. I did an Add to Run via Alden DC in 11B. Fits and feels terrific. Beautiful shoe and I highly recommend it! Great shoe that is very uniquely Alden and higher end in its appearance.
