I would agree that pretty much any cobbler can handle it. Cost will vary by region and cobbler reputation. In Pittsburgh, I have 2 cobblers that I regularly use and both charge $25 for just the sole (add $5 for heel but I rarely do that). Aram at ahonshoes charged me $40 and it was worth the extra charge for the shoes he worked on. It's no more functional but it is much nicer looking. For most shoes where your basic black topy will suffice, go with the cheaper option.

Finally took my Jcrew dark brown calf longwings for their maiden voyage. Here are some pics from out in the wild:









UPDATE: Jcrew by Alden of course smile.gif

Are those the pomegranate gustins? Those are a great fit with color 8. Love it!

Just stumbled across these chocolate calf grain Indys from frans boone. Thoughts on these compared to the various, more familiar 403 options? I think I like them because they're unique, but I'm not sure...

Funny that you mention the size. My feet are just shape very unfortunate – rather wide up front, medium heel width, and rather flat instep.
I just posted a few days back that I have 10E (as in the pic), 10.5D, and a pair of 10D in Barrie, and none of them really works perfectly for me.
The 10D seems to be a perfect fit – until walking a lot in them or after like two hours. They are literally a few millimeters to short. My heel hurts a lot, and my toes are all so slightly cramped. However, the 10E, and 10.5D, which appear to hardly have any difference size-wize when I wear them, are all a little too big. So I wear them right now with a thin cork insert, but I am planning to get orthopedic inserts soon. I hope this solves the problem with my low instep.
To put this into context: I had a 10E Plaza Last shoe, which I had to return. Just too narrow in the toe area. I have a 10E Aberdeen Tassel, which is really painful after four hours. And a 10.5E Tassel, which again is too big. Then again, I bought a (fairly used) pair of 10E Captoe (2146) on Aberdeen and they more or less fit.
Sounds horrible, feels like that, too. Alden does not have THE size for me, apparently.

Anyways, if you (or anyone) has a suggestion in this regard I am very thankful to hear it – I would be happy to solve my sizing mystery!
Sounds similar to my feet. I'd bet you are a 10.5 C Barrie and possibly 11C plaza......and yes, try modified last!

Thanks. They are the Natural Indigo x Persimmon. Not sure if that was the one you were thinking of. The weft is a nice change of pace though and once they break in and stretch a bit will probably be favorite pair. I just got lucky and found them in the stock store and had a credit.

Yeah that's what I was trying to say. I remember seeing them and thinking it was a little gimmicky but your fit is perfect. It can be difficulty pairing bright blue denim with "purple" shoes. This is a fine example of pulling it off well

Thank you very much. Was a bit of an experiment but I'm happy with how it came out. An antique edge might blend a little better.

I really like the rust tone look poking through the indigo, not jarring, just a slight visual difference.
