My experience has been that the inventory displayed on the Alden SF website bears little to no correlation with what they have in stock, e.g., C width shoes. That may have changed in recent months, however, with the slight re-do of the site.
Hehe, I mentioned that my dad had two pair of cordovan shoes - one for dress and one for work. He was a short haul truck driver - in and out in all kinds of weather. Those work shoes lasted 30 + years.
^ Make sure you follow the break-in method. If I'm not mistaken, wear the shoes for an hour three different times, and wear them only on a carpet during this time. Mac can chime in if I messed that up at all, but I did this for my last pair of #8 boots and it worked great.
