Just a different take here, but I found the size down, add a width method worked in the forefoot. However, the heel fit then became too sloppy for me. YMMV.

The rule I've learned over the years is that if you see an Alden pair you really like, immediately pull the trigger (assuming you have the funds at that time). Any time I wait, they're gone and I regret it. baldy[1].gif

I've never seen that style of printing on the insole of any pair (The Alden Shop, San Francisco, all spelled out) and I didn't believe Alden/Horween stamps "Genuine Shell Cordovan" on the soles. Can anyone comment? Seems just a hair off.

I could, of course, be wrong and they be a fantastic deal.

^ it's all legit

PSA for you boot guys. Context Clothing has some offerings in a range of sizes. Lots of E widths.

I think your Leffot gunboats are perfect. I don't know who started pairing #8 with an antique edge trim, but I am a big fan. Thanks for posting sazon. You got some nice rolls going on there.

Right compared to left.




That is one tough looking Indy boot, I'm liking it a lot. Are you a big trubalance last fan yet? Do you or anyone else here know if the stitching on the Innsbruck boot is done by hand or machine? BTW, congratulations shouldaville. Nice score!
