I think the original thread starters were mainly looking at Alden for boots to wear with denim. Compared to Allen Edmonds, which is seen as a dress shoe company, more people do seem to wear Alden shoes casually. That said, a lot of people in this thread mainly wear Alden shoes with suits, chinos and wool pants, which would seem to be Men's Clothing.
That makes sense, thanks for responding.post #53976 of 1224166/24/13 at 12:38pmpost #53977 of 1224166/24/13 at 1:03pmpost #53978 of 1224166/24/13 at 1:29pm
I found some beat up aldens at a thrift shop tpday - does anyone know if the black "piping" (not sure of the correct term - the black material that goes around the top of the heel and runs over the eyelets and down to vamp) can be replaced. It's the same part of the shoe that cracks if you dont' use a shoehorn.
thanks!post #53979 of 1224166/24/13 at 1:35pmpost #53980 of 1224166/24/13 at 2:02pmpost #53981 of 1224166/24/13 at 2:29pmpost #53982 of 1224166/24/13 at 3:18pm
wonder if any of you can offer some sizing advice. What makes it difficult is international shipping & customs which makes returning not possible.
I am considering suede chukkas, and i have the option of Leydon or Barrie.
I have no experience of fitting a Leydon, only Barrie.
unlined shell PTB 8.5D is a *perfect* fit
lined shell LWB 8.5D is *ok*
lined calf All weather w/crepe is *ok* in 8E - the 8E is a better fit lengthwise than the 8.5D mentioned above but is a little looser in the heel, although not enough to initially cause any slippage.
My questions are :
If i went with a 8E Barrie in unlined suede chukka, would the chukka form provide more or less "heel grip" than the 8E calf w/crepe All weather Walker
.........- or would i be better off going for an 8.5D Barrie?
If i were to go for the Leydon, from the above info do you think a 9D or a 9E would be best? I *tend* not to require a wide fitting shoe, but in running shoes it is quite common for me to find many running brands (aspics, brooks) to be too narrow. Nike's (which have a tendency to be a litte wider) fit best, mostlysize 10 or occassioally 9.5 depending on the model.
