They sell the cordovan in some of the NY stores at $560 if I remember correctly. They don't sell it online for whatever reason. You can probably call the NY stores to order them (but it's just the regular #8 longwing that can be purchases anywhere)

Rangers rule



Notes:

Alden 73030 Ranger Mocc a/k/a "The traditional American country walking shoe."

(Handsomely) crafted in smooth tobacco Horween Chamois leather, heavily oiled.

Hand sewn mocc toe and unique quarter construction, natural plantation crepe rubber sole, give these shoes a time-honored New England look.

Van last.

360 degree regular (flat, as opposed to reverse) welt, brown metal eyelets, flat wax laces, full leather linings, natural cork insole, full heel counters and steel shank through the arch.

Current status: second only to my 94320C Clipper oxfords (also - my only Aldens guaranteed to receive compliments every time they're worn)

It would be interesting if everyone would state which of their Aldens get the most compliments from laypersons. Sometimes, shoes like these or the Chromexcel Indy's seem to get more reaction from people on the street than a lot of the cordovan shoes.

the J crew store only had an 8D, no 7.5D and when I tried them on, they fit surprisingly well. I have about 5-6 pairs of Barrie last Aldens, some boots/some shoes. Some are 7.5 D and some are 8 D. It's just down to the style of the pair.

At this point, I take it that most members here can narrow down their Alden size to 0.5. So at the worst if you can't try on a particular pair, then try to order the two sizes you think will fit best and return the other pair. Good luck.

If you wear a size 9 in trubalance you may wanna check out the street wear bs forum. A guy has some LS #8 jumper boots in great condition for only $425.

BTW, I have no affiliation with the seller, just lookin out for Alden heads.

For me, it's the cigar LWB's.

I got several "Are those Redwings?" with my Indy's.

My regular Indy's gets the most compliments out of all my boots. People always ask me where I got it from but is usually followed by a cringe once they find out the price.

I would like to get a pair of Alden 405s. However, in AE I wear size 14E. Any chance of me getting a pair of aldens in that size?

They are available up to size 15, you just need to contact a store to order them for you.

Maybe. I don't size down for Trubalance (don't know my size in Barrie), but I half-size down for modified last.

Not counting comments from my wife, who compliments my whiskey PTBs every time I wear them ("They look like butterscotch"), here is my list:

Top compliment-receiver: 911s (tan calfskin medallion toe bals), with grand total of 2 compliments. Ever.
Tied for second with 1 compliment each: brown chromexcel Ultimate Indy's, cigar NSTs.

I don't think anyone ever looks at my shoes other than me.

I know people love my Ralph Lauren Darlton's and Ultimate Indy's.

I have recieved comments on both pairs of my PTB's and people notice my other shoes and boots I know.

Also my white suede saddle shoes have recieved a lot of compliments and interest.
