Nice cool day in Tampa today...the perfect day for some wool socks and what's becoming my favorite shoe --> the 975



**Benjos laces**

My late entry for Whiskey Wednesday


Saw a pair of these on the 8.5D list, lucky day for someone!

Are those the 36" version of the Benjos?

I'm about to place an order from them. Need some new Indy laces and want to mix it up, and might get some fun balmoral laces for the summer weddings I have to go to.

I feel like it should be at 2, but if they don't loosen up to get to 1 then that's not good. I'm also worried about it fitting perfectly when they're new and then stretching to be too big.

Thoughts?

I don't think any shoe should fit like #2 or #3 out of the box. If it does, you have the wrong size.

Nice choice, Tampa. I'm wearing their little brother, 9751, today.

Shoemart refers to them as "irregulars". Click this link, and enter each size and width you are looking for separately. Good luck fellow big-footed brethren!

I believe they don't make these anymore but they are 36". They're flat and waxed (like I like my women) and I don't think they carry them anymore. The ones they carry are round now...the old ones looked like this:

...and thanks @tifosi for the kind words and your 9751s are awesome and something I should probably buy too :)

This is a super-practical shoe. Simple, classic, and in a great color.

I really like them with the darker edges! Did you say that you got these off of the seconds list, or am I thinking of someone else? I would love to know where you got them, as this is the type of shoe that I would end up wearing the lion's share of the work week.

I’m totally convinced that sizing is everything to reduce shell cordovan rolls. Now I understand that the proper fit is important!

OK, so when is Alden going to come into the 21st century and improve their web presence?

Alden Madison has a Yahoo email address, for crying out loud.

Haha. If they haven't done it by now...
