I find that this works for me. Specifically, I am a 7E in barrie, but that a 7.5d in barrie fits, at worst, pretty good to, at best, almost the same as 7E. Partic8ularly if you are able to return, you should try. Of you cannot return, I would try unless your feet are very wide.

Thoughts on sizing up .5 but going down in width?

my apologies. I am on on a smart phone and I inadvertently asserted my reply in between the paragraphs of your question instead of afterwards. I hope it is not too hard to make out my thoughts.

Thanks Sub, they fit me terrific. Super comfy.

I went to Alden DC and tried them on... :-) They run in my normal Barrie size.

Just wanted to give a shout-out to whoever posted that PSA on the Alden NY pre-order.  It's been really hard to keep up with the thread lately, but I am sure glad I "peaked" 2 days ago.  I sent and email to Alden NY yesterday and was told they still had 5 slots.  I was at first hesitant because they needed a full payment upfront.  But when they explained that the skins are already available and they are just completing the list, I pulled the trigger for the Whiskey LWB!  You guys are awesome! :fistbump:

 

Alden NY is really smart.  They have their cash upfront and no inventory to worry about.

^I only like stores being smart if I'm a shareholder.  I hate when stores are smart and I'm a customer :)

I agree that the chukkas are super comfy. My cigar chukkas are among my most worn pairs during fall, winter and spring. I especially like them when traveling

Suede Shortwings today

 

 

post #68023 of 122416
Just want to post a positive note on Alden's customer service. In short: I recently had a pair of boots recrafted, a problem appeared after a few wears, and 20 minutes after an email with a picture they said they were sending me a pre-paid mailer for repair. Obviously we'd all prefer that defects not happen in the first place, but they are bound to arise, and IMO all we can really ask is that companies stand behind their products. In my experience Alden does that better than most.

Now feel free to carry on with the shoe ogling.

Hello!

I just purchased a pair of Alden plain toe suede bluchers and noticed the outside sole has a "defect."

I place the word defect in quotes because I am not sure if I should return these shoes.

There is a space in the outside sole where the black colored part of the heel connects to the brown section.

The two parts don't fit like a puzzle, one side is slightly misaligned, leaving a small 1/2 cm empty space.

In other words, the black exterior sole section of the heels is not straight. It was not cut straight on one side, and as a result doesn't "fit."



I am at work and don't have a picture yet so I post this picture from the web. Tonight when I get home I will take a picture of the shoe to show you.

I am wondering if this can cause any issue, like stuff getting stuck in the space, and if I should return the shoe.

Thanks.
