For the cap toes, are you referring to a cap toe blucher shoe (2160/2161) or a boot? I've never heard of a cap toe blucher boot on the Aberdeen, but I'd love to see it if it exists.

Shoe at TSM. Cap Toe on Aberdeen. One with perforations ..

Just a heads up.  I was at the Tannery Outlet in Boston (back of the store on the left - top shelf) recently and saw a pair of cigar PTBs for 50% off.  Size 8.5.  Looks like they had been tried on a few times with some creasing and minor scraps on the sole (it is an outlet after all).

 

Not my size or I would have been all over them.

Thanks all.
Most wear same size in both lasts, but many, myself included, do not. I wear van TTS since the instep is very tight for me.

Doing a bit of boots brushing therapy tonight.

I just got off the phone with Joe at Alden DC - he said the ravello grant last cap toe boot was confirmed in June and was only a limited run of sizes 7-11. Not sure how many in each size - only D widths though. I'm a size 12 - so I'm out of luck.

Nice boots x2.

I'm on the wait list for the #8 NST boot on Plaza, but every time I see a picture of the Leffot Tankers I can't stop myself from thinking maybe I should go that route instead. First world problems, I know.

"TTS" for me is 9D and that size fits me in Grant and Aberdeen. I take 8.5C in Van lasted leisure mocs. Maybe an 8.5D could work on a laced shoe but never tried. My feet would swim in a 9 on the Van last and Alden DC and NY (and I think Citishoes if IIRC) all recommend sizing down from TTS for Van.

Cheers guys. Thanks. Anyone have additional pictures of this Alden Michigan boot? The SA at Ben Silver I spoke with said it's an Alden stock model but I can't find anything on it anywhere. Maybe it's new?
