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.
Zen, most go true to size on the Plaza Last. I am a 10.5C on the AE 5-last (Strand) and wear 10.5C plaza.
I have that Alden x BB model in both Color 8 and Black Shell and it is fantastic. It has a lot of character. :-)
