I just received the Indy Snuff Suede boots from Alden SF. The 8.5D is a little roomy. My foot is border line C/D width. I am going to a local Alden shop today or tomorrow to get sized. I wear a size 8.5D in the Wolverine 1000 Mile boot. It fits fine. The Alden Indy with the Trubalance last is probably a little more roomy than the Wolverine, so an 8D may do the trick. Alden doesn't make narrow widths in the special run boots. What do you think?

Would love to see some pixs please!!!

On my way to Buffalo, sporting my brown chrmxl LWBs (Epaulet Innsbrook). Should be perfect for rain and 30-40 degree temps, as well as a long day in a couple of airports. Is O'Connell's the only Alden dealer on town?

I feel the pain of $1000 CAD Aldens, I have something on the way from DC as we speak that should be only about $80-90 though since we have less tax over here. UPS is the worst foe the brokerage rates. Typically like $50-60 and then taxes on top.  I tried to get Kathy to ship via USPS but she felt more comfortable sticking with UPS and ultimately no reason to press the issue. I have gotten Alden SF to ship via USPS and that pair arrived without an extra dime on arrival! (a rare win haha)

Snuff for me as well today, though I wish I had a black shell PTB to rock the MDubs Halloween look.

RydenFan, these are great. These the Leffot Plaza version? I have them and they are just superb. King of my Suede family for sure.

Wow, these are three great examples to how the Cap Toe Boot pattern can absolutely rock.

Happy Halloween.

Wow Repp and Henry, I had to scroll up to ensure that I wasn't looking at the same pair!!! Very cool. I like the shoes, but not a big fan of those laces, but I tend to have a more conservative style pallet.

Walds and Burzan, you are both killing it with your snuff! I must say, I particularly love those Snuff Indy boots. Too bad I have already exceeded my Snuff limit. I feel your Canadian UPS pain as I recently sold a pair of ice skates on eBay and got hosed when the recipient decided to not pay the taxes. Ended up costing me about $60 to "sell" those skates.

Repp, O'Connells was the only dealer but their relationship with Alden terminated about a year back. They did a stock blow out sale, but may still have a few lingering pairs.
