***The official Alden thread *** Share enthusiasm, reviews, sizing, advice, and photos. - Page 1666post #24976 of 1224163/11/12 at 4:34pmtbh i don't really find aldens that comfortable. i bought a super cheap pair of the flex welt chukkas that i need to get resoled (previous owner apparently had REALLY strange feet..) and might throw them on a crepe sole and see what's up.

comfortable how? I like the flex welt over a double leather because it conforms to my foot and i get no heel slippage. the downside is that i especially feel the impact every time I take a step. similar to wearing slippers I supposepost #24978 of 1224163/11/12 at 4:40pmjust in general. ive owned maybe 5, 6? pairs. i wouldn't buy a pair on the barrie/trubalance again - just a weird last shape. i have another pair on the aberdeen or grant (forget), which is better, but after a full day wearing them it's just not that comfortable.post #24979 of 1224163/11/12 at 4:44pmQuote:Originally Posted by Alcibiades
I could see them as white sneaker replacements in a casual outfit... As a 20/21 year old, I wore denim, white sneakers (adidas, Nike dunks, whatever) and various shirts (buttondown shirts, poli shirts, etc). I could easily see someone a bit older replacing the sneakers with these, wearing upgraded denim and an upgraded shirt.
EDIT - You can wear those with any casual outfit you would wear white suede bucks with (i.e. any denim or chino, but no seersucker suits)
C'Mon.. Light Blue Seersucker suit + "Marble" = Hampton's Chic!!

I have the same size in both and there is no heel slip. The Trubalance is actually wider in the heel than Barrie but you don't notice the difference if it's a boot.post #24983 of 1224163/11/12 at 5:56pmpost #24984 of 1224163/11/12 at 5:57pmpost #24985 of 1224163/11/12 at 5:58pmpost #24986 of 1224163/11/12 at 6:03pmpost #24987 of 1224163/11/12 at 6:03pmQuote:
+1, that's why I was praying my suede ptb's didn't come in a barrie last. Luckily they are indeed on the Leydonpost #24988 of 1224163/11/12 at 6:07pmpost #24989 of 1224163/11/12 at 6:14pmQuote:
