Funny, I know exactly where 2111 Center St. in Berkeley should be, but I don't think the building exists any more. Thanks for posting!

Go wider. I had the same problem, and while the shoe has loosened up, it's still a bit annoying/not perfect. The shoe I have is a snuff suede chukka. Also be warned, after a few months my suede chukka is falling apart at the seams. Very disappointed in the build quality of this shoe. If anyone wants, I'll post the photo evidence.
Having just acquired a 1494, I'd like to see some photos so I know what to look for.Quote:
Snuff is a middle of the road color, not really light and not really dark. Dark brown can worn year round. The tan suede, however, I can't see wearing in the winter unless you're somewhere like Southern California, Arizona, New Mexico, etc.post #29063 of 1224165/28/12 at 3:33amLove the shoe and jean combo. Great contrast.
I just dont understand...Quote:post #29064 of 1224165/28/12 at 4:01amhi,
one question according sizing the indy boots.
will the length of the sole different compared a E and B width ? i had ordered 403 in 10 E. the length fits fine, but the middle foot coud be smaller, i have small feet, so i wanna order a 10 B.
Will the length be the same ?
Thank you in advancepost #29065 of 1224165/28/12 at 5:39amQuote:Originally Posted by pic9809

Hard to know.
The description says "oiled single leather sole" but the picture is of a standard leather sole.post #29066 of 1224165/28/12 at 5:43amQuote:Originally Posted by blue collar

Apparently the roll is okay with denim in non-jean cuts.
P. W. Herman approves of this combo.post #29067 of 1224165/28/12 at 5:50ampost #29068 of 1224165/28/12 at 5:54amFrom Tom
http://www.askandyaboutclothes.com/forum/showthread.php?69144-Alden-quot-flex-welt-quot-clarification&p=552676#post552676Quote:The term "flex welt" is just the name of the series. I'm assuming it relates to a "flexible, welted dress shoe." The outsole itself is dunked and soaked in a special oil which not only makes the leather flexible, it actually adds to its durability. The oil actually helps to move the leather around as it takes a beating rather than knicking off the leather...think platinum versus silver. The leather uppers are also different from the normal dress line. They are tumbled calf and lady calf, softer and broken in, however not as dressy and not as easily shined.
If you did resole the shoe with a regular leather outsole, it would obviously no longer be as flexible. It has nothing to do with the welt, just the sole.
One more thing, they DO have steel shanks...some people believe that the flex welt series do not have steel shanks, but the truth is that they do.
Hope that helped.post #29069 of 1224165/28/12 at 7:40amQuote:
