post #9631 of 122416
sizing question... If my size on the hampton last is 10E, will that generally be the size that would work on other lasts as well? A 10.5E is slightly too big, and the 10.5D pinches the outer edges of my toes by the end of the day. While recently trying on shell cordovan I found that it fits a bit looser than calfskin (for the same shoe of equal size and on the same last). Is this typical or do calfskin and shell sizings tend to be pretty equal? Thanks (question also posted on aaac)

That's too baller for me, man. I can only afford the generic ones.

I don't really care about my cheaper shoes so I don't put trees in those.

Looks like a good deal if you like the commando sole (I do)...no affiliation with seller http://cgi.ebay.com/Alden-9-Eyelet-W...#ht_500wt_1156

These are a good deal even though they are seconds (he does not mention this in his listing). For those who are interested, I would recommend asking what the flaw is (if any).

I just popped into Alden DC to pick up some shoelaces, and they had some whiskey LWs as well as some in ravello. I thought I saw whiskey bal wingtips too, but as I detest bals, didn't pay too much attention to them.

Side note: I am wearing my natural cxl plain toe boots, and Kathy concurred that natural shoe cream is the best thing for them.

Not only are they seconds, but they have speed hooks at the top (as opposed to eyelets, as it states in the listing). Not that it's a bad thing, but still.

Can anyone tell me if the Copeley Last fits 1/2 size large (similar to the Barrie)?

Thanks!!

mcarthur, I love all your Aldens but I dont think your socks get enough recognition. I picked up a couple pairs at BB while looking at your fit pics on my phone. lol

Speaking of indys, do you guys use shoe trees considering they're more casual?

Do you guys always keep your Aldens in shoe trees or simply just for a day or two after each wear?
