So sorry to hear that. My cxl chukkas surprisingly fit tighter than my other cxls in the same size. More money to put toward some other fun Aldens hopefully soon!

Case for Alden calf and calf longevity. Got these in 2004 and they were worn heavily for two years in a two shoe rotation. I actually had a local cobbler do a half sole replacement when I didn't know any better. They are now on their third sole which is an Alden restoration job. They have reached veteran status and get worn a couple of times a month now but still fail to disappoint. I never babied them but am pretty good about using overshoes. Polished no more than 4x per year. Alden makes quality calf.post #74794 of 1224162/27/14 at 6:32amQuote:Originally Posted by adamf009

I have found Alden's shell, calf, and suede to be rather durable.post #74795 of 1224162/27/14 at 6:33ampost #74796 of 1224162/27/14 at 6:47amQuote:
Same here. With the lower vamp, I think the unlined ones would suit my foot better.Quote:
Good to know it wasn't just me that thought they were tighter. I've gotten very picky with the fit of my shoes now. I made a lot of mistakes early on but now am pretty quick to send anything back if it doesn't fit perfectly. I sometimes still get stuck with something that might not be the best fit because sometimes you just can't tell until after you've used them in a real world scenario. Walking on carpet isn't the same as walking on concrete for a mile or two.post #74797 of 1224162/27/14 at 7:02ampost #74798 of 1224162/27/14 at 7:08ampost #74799 of 1224162/27/14 at 7:12am
