not alden specifically, but we talk Horween shell colors in here a lot, and the Leffot blog just put up pics of two colors I've never seen before. (these are both Rider boots)

Moka (like mocha?)

ok thanks. LHS does looks a little longer in pictures and i like it a little over the marlows. but both are good penny loafers

if your big toe is up there your feet are going to be squeezed pretty tight into your shoes

i agree though, i'm a relative alden newb and sometimes wonder about sizing. i think the main thing is make sure the widest part of your foot matches widest part of the shoe.

Alden x Leffot Color 8 LWB.
First pair of shells! smile.gif Been coveting Color 8 for a while, decided "What the hell?!" the other day, and BAM! Here they are.
Didn't do a very good job reproducing the color in the pic (they look so different depending on the light)... That being said, I'm quite happy with them, and am looking forward to seeing them age.
Side note, NewYorkRanger's Ravello's make me second guess my purchase! Was torn between Color 8 and Cigar initially. I'm quite a fan of the antique edge though, and am happy I was able to snag some color 8's with that.
Cheers Gents!

An excellent choice. That antique edge trim looks great and I'm sure you've noticed the color(s) #8 develops into in the many photos here. Always room for Cigar or Ravello, next, right?biggrin.gif

A good e-stalker would have found her picture by now.

Alden Shoes – #8 Shortwing for Style Forum (LSW & LSBH)
Posted by Tom

Our latest Alden model was designed for the members of Style Forum, particularly those who post and read the official Alden thread.

The combination of Horween color #8 shell cordovan and an antique edgetrim sounded like a great idea and now that we finally see it in the flesh, Style Forum was right.

A double waterlock leather sole and regular welt round out the details.

As most of our order was presold, stock is very short.

(Barrie last, $595.00)

please PM me if you would like.
best,
scott

Since I am a narrow size, I appreciate the fit options offered by the LHS and it seems to work better overall. It does have a low arch though so that strap can pinch your feet depending on foot shape so it doesn't work for everyone even if you get the length/width perfect. The "D width only" Marlow is easier on the arch but again--D width only.

I have been fortunate enough to make both work. 11B is working in the LHS for me while the 10D Marlow, although a little short in the length, seems to fit very very well when i go sockless in the summer.

As far as finishing goes--I like the hand sewing, the half strap, and single leather sole on the LHS better. On the Marlow, I like the 270 welt with close heel and the closely trimmed sole around the whole shoe better than the LHS.

How many people here sized one whole down for Trubalance? as a 8C not sure if 7.5d might be too big

I have. I'm normally a 8.5 in sneakers, went down to a 7.5 E on indy and context roy boots. The guy at leather soul was saying how they might have sized me wrong, and I'm actually a D width. I normally wear an insole anyways so a 7.5E works fine for me.

I went down a whole size - usually I'm a 10D in most shoes, Clarks Desert Kahn/Boot I'm a 9.5 and today when I went to try on some Indys, 9D felt nice and comfy.

On another note, JUST ORDERED MY FIRST PAIR OF ALDENS - Ultimate Indys in Chromexcel from Leathersoul Beverly Hills

Is it unhealthy how incredibly giddy/excited I am?

Also as a side note, I saw that the Leffot 405's have burgundy laces, which I think look pretty cool. Does anyone have any alternate lace color/material ideas for the chromexcel?

I'm looking for a shell cap toe or wingtip to wear with suits. I'm torn between #8 and Cigar. The Cigar is intriguing, partly because it is uncommon. Is cigar too casual for a cap toe balmoral? Is it this dark IRL?
