What is better?

A slightly more expensive leather lined Indy, or a cheaper cotton duck lined one? Is there a difference in wear, or longevity?

Thanks.

Leather lined. Didn't know they were even making the cotton duck one anymore. I ordered a cotton duck around the time they were making the switch and received the leather lined one anyway.

Has anyone had any fit issues with the Aberdeen last? I usually wear a 11.5D Allen Edmonds dress shoe size. 11D Barrie lasted boots fit me wonderfully. I recently bought a pair of sixe 11.5D NSTs in Ravello shell. At first, they fit fine, but a little loose in one heel. I cured this issue with a tongue pad. But now after wearing them for a week every other day, they seem to have stretched to the point that they are actually loose. My foot slides forward in them until it crushes up into the (quite narrow) toe box. I love the look of the beautiful shoes, but the fit leaves much to be desired (on my feet, at least). Anyone have anything similar happen with the NSTs? Any suggestions to remedy the issue?

^^^ Many people - including me - don't wear the Aberdeen last since it's wide in the heel and narrow in the toe box. Your affliction is common.

Their "whiskey cigar" cordovan long wing looks very nice but it's quite pricey at over 800 USD excluding VAT... (Aren't whiskey and cigar two separate colours?)

I wear a 9 in the Indys they fir great and I love them. But I fit into a 9.5 with the Red Wing GT. Does this make sense? I have a narrow foot too. The GT in size 9 squeezes the 3 toes so much they can't wiggle. The 9.5 GT there's room. But the Aldens size 9 is perfect and feels great. I never wore a size 9 in I don't know how long. Does this sound right? Chucks are 9.5, Sneakers are 10, Sperry's are 10, Brooks Brothers boats 9.5, Mephisto Battler 10. Alden Indy 9??
