+1.  Too bad, really.  I can never understand why a business fosters an anti-customer attitude, evident in phone interaction, ordering, waitlists, etc.

I am aware of the Madison's 403 on commando. They had my size as of 2 weeks ago. I prefer the 360 degree welt stitching on the Belfast version vs. the 270 degree on the Madsion version.

Are these versions pretty much the same as the LS Ultimate Indy?

They are talking about  Leather Soul not Leffot.

 

See Ya,

I know. My response was to the comment in which someone stated they felt leather soul had the best makeups.

The important word is "had" and I think LS did some of the best makeups in the past.  No doubt Leffot has killed it the last few years.  However TSM, Alden DC and SF, plus Alden on Madison have had some great options too.  I feel very fortunate to land some incredible make ups the last 2 years.  AOC has had a couple of great ones lately too!

 

Merry Christmas to All!

 

See Ya,

Steve

B Nelson won't resize.

My bad, I converted using Euros not Pounds, LOL. £408 is approx $635 USD, so not really a good price, but I want them anyway because I really like the 360 welt stitching.

perhaps they do. i wouldn't know as i purchased these from a reseller in hong kong. the boots are from 2012 (thanks to mdubs for the help in identifying the 'vintage'). just plain dumb luck on my end to be able to acquire these.

I bought the black pair for tuxedo and white tie wear. I think they are very comfortable, and look great.

I thinkthe color 8 pair, as well as the blacl, would also look great with jeans and oth er casual clothes.

Question for all of you Alden buffs about the plaza last.  The Alden website says it is "slightly longer than regular U.S. size", but does not denote it as one that is a 1/2 size larger than regular US sizes.  Do  you normally size down on this last or do you wear the same size as regular US sized shoes?

 

I am a 10.5D in AEs.  Considering some used 10d Alden burgundy shell via ebay since it is out of my price range at full retail.

 

These are the shoes in question which I believe are on the plaza last, but please correct me if you believe otherwise.

Is do not think sizing up 1/2 sizsize for grant is likely to work. I wear 7E in barrie- lasted shoes and can often wear 7.5D in barrie - sizing up one-hald in length, but down in width - although the fit is not ideal. 7.5E is my brannock size and what I wear in grant lasted shoes and boots.

I have tried sizing up one-half size and down in width to 8D to see if that size would work in grant and plaza lasts because these sizes are far more plentiful than "e" widths. Unlike sizing up/width down in barrie, this strategy did not work for me in grant or plaza. I. These lasta, the shoes felt so long they were like clown shoes, but we're still too narrow.

I go true to size on the plaza last. 1/2 down would be too small for me.
