+1, I think that looks like a great fit myself, just by the amount of separation... Obviously can't tell about the feel in the toe box from that picture.

Get some boot socks or Medium weights and it will eliminate the sliding around.

Oh they look ok from the separation? It's almost touching near the top of the laces... Even with the laces that tight the fit isn't snug. Wish they were snug around the heel and mid-foot.

As always, Black Shell is amazingly beautiful and a very under utilized color here...

Not a great pic,but to give you guys an idea how close they are, I'll take a few tomorrow under the sunlight.


Both are beautiful either way. Great shoes!

I can't wait to see sunlight photos. They are definitely close!

I held off on a Ravello LWB because my Whiskey LWB is from the same run you were on.

Not sure why I didn't try that sooner... thicker socks helped the fit significantly. Thanks.

The laces almost touch near the top of the laces with all my boots (Alden Indy Snuff Suede, Wolverine Courtland 1000 Mile boots and Red Wing Iron Rangers). For me it's a case of skinny ankles

From reading your posts, it sounds like you should try a smaller size.

Here are a few pics in different lighting , they're nice but I'm dissapointed with Alden color inconsistency , TSM batch is way lighter than these and what whiskey should really look like IMHO, I don't think it's worth to keep them both,they're too close.

For those with recently acquired LWBs.....how much room do you have in the toe box?

 

I have slipped on the whiskey LWBs I recently purchsaed from Alden SF, and the widest part of my foot seems to line up with the widest part of the shoe but it feels like there is a TON of room in the toes.

@mdubs - Those black shell LWBs look outstanding. I need some black shoes in my life and those are high on my list.
