The 325 last fits a bit large. Maybe not quite Barrie large.
Plaza last is pretty TTS.
I take a 10.5US/10UK in a 325 last boot.
Also take a 11US in the Plaza.
YMMV, but I'm guessing you'd take a 9 in Plaza.post #28385 of 1224165/19/12 at 1:38pmQuote:
I appreciate your help, cheers. I'll go for the 9US in Plaza.post #28386 of 1224165/19/12 at 2:04pmpost #28387 of 1224165/19/12 at 2:12pmpost #28388 of 1224165/19/12 at 2:32pmpost #28389 of 1224165/19/12 at 2:58pmpost #28390 of 1224165/19/12 at 3:15pmQuote:
I'm a little hesitant to go outside of my comfort zone. Love the LWB. Thought I had my hands on the ravello shortwing (LS) but just barely missed out. I like the medallion cap toe and the wt boot, but haven't found either in my size. I gave the NST some thought, but like the long wing the best. I'm a wuss when it comes to trying something new that's this expensive. Thanks for the advice.post #28391 of 1224165/19/12 at 3:18pmQuote:Originally Posted by LeatherSOUL
We can order any of the stock offerings for you at any time. For our makeups there is just so much planning and back of house work involved to accommodate everyone's requests individually. Plus most people aren't willing to wait. That is why I basically stopped doing our preorders.
If you don't mind waiting 18+ months with a non-refundable/transferable deposit, let me know the styles you are looking for (non-cigar/ravello/whiskey/#4) and I will try my best to accommodate you personally. Email me directly if you are interested.
That is what I want to hear.
If I am in Beverly Hills can your folks there make a fairly accurate (with some allowance for error of course) determination as to whether and which models can feet my wide and high arched wide toed feet?
I'd be willing to pre-pay and wait 18 mos, but I'd hate to do so and find out Aldens are just the wrong shoes for my feet, in any size.post #28392 of 1224165/19/12 at 3:23pmpost #28393 of 1224165/19/12 at 3:38pm
Recent acquisitions. Brown calf longwing, 405 indy boot, tan suede chukka on a crepe sole.
Went a full size down on the indy boots and they're incredibly comfortable. Anybody else do this?post #28394 of 1224165/19/12 at 4:32pmJust putting the feelers out - if anyone has a pair of shell Indy boots in 10.5D that they are looking to part with, please PM me. Looking for good condition but they need not be perfect as they'll be motorcycle boots.post #28395 of 1224165/19/12 at 5:08pm
