I'm interested in buying a pair of Alden Indy, but am unsure what size I should get.
I've read to many size posts on the forum, most of it conflicting.

For reference I wear:
Varvatos Chucks - size 8.5
Five Ten Basic - size 9
Varvatos loafers - size 9D

According to Alden the Trubalance last run a half size larger than marked.

Would this make my ideal Indy size a 8.5?

Thanks in advance.

Is Alden currently producing saddle shoes or bucks? I know they're available in Japan, but any American stores carry them?

There are not any in their stock catalog, but some of the stores order custom models. I would check with the Alden stores in either San Francisco, NYC, or DC to see if they will have any in this next year, and maybe Tom (Leather Soul). He was selling some very nice ones on the plaza last that I should have ordered earlier.



Tom, any plans for a reorder for these or something similar?

Yeah, those nice but i prefer full suede.
Do those have a rubber brick or leather sole?

Those ones have a leather sole. I have seen some Alden's with the red brick sole though. Not my thing but very cool.

That's essentially what i'm looking for.. red brick sole, dual-tone all suede. Yum.

Actually, the NYC store might have some bucks with red soles now: http://horween.files.wordpress.com/2009/08/dsc_0011.jpg

There are some sitting on the shelf near the left, no saddle shoes though.

Are the more tapered lasts like the Leydon and Plaza meant to have a longer insole compared your a shoe in your size that isn't tapered? I was sized as a 10.5 Leydon but the insole of the shoe is a longer than the insoles of my other shoes. I theory it makes sense since your toes are not meant to go all the way to the edge. Can anyone speak to this?
