thank you, one day I'll try Modified last as well. I really like the shape from the pictures.post #72699 of 1224162/4/14 at 6:35pmpost #72700 of 1224162/4/14 at 6:39pmQuote:
CXL is made from cowhide and horsehide, but not calf. Your shoe is likely cowhide.
I don't have any experience with Alden's CXL bluchers, but my Alden CXL boots are very comfortable as are my Barrie lasted boots.post #72701 of 1224162/4/14 at 6:44pmQuote:
My CXL boots were extremely comfortable from day one. Great leather and very easy to maintain.post #72702 of 1224162/4/14 at 6:54pmQuote:
Are you talking about these?
Extremely comfortable. Very versatile, go with denim, khakis and shorts.
Great shoes.post #72703 of 1224162/4/14 at 6:58pmpost #72704 of 1224162/4/14 at 7:03pm
Anyone, wanting wide shoes, will have the easiest time of it by getting the Alden catalogue. Sizes up to EEEE, many lasts and classic shoes. I think you need to order with an Alden dealer (listed by state on the website).
Getting wide sizes via boutique has options including, but not limited to, Leffot, Context, SHoemart, Citishoes, Alden DC NYC Cisco, & Molded shoe. Even they stick to E at this time.
Alden stock offerings do not include shell boots.
