What's making your feet hurt exactly? Mine caused some sore heels for the first day, but I don't remember them giving me much other trouble.

I don't know. Probably all of the walking I did showing the gays around. I wore them non stop on Georgetowns/DC's uneven pavement, bricked, cracked sidewalks. I just asked another Alden lover, and he said his feet hurt like hell for awhile too. Up until like 50 wears.

I have a pair of Indy's, and they shouldn't make your feet hurt.

I have 5 pairs of Indy's (calf, suede, cordo).
None of them hurt while breaking in.

Well damn, I didn't know we all had the same type of feet.

traction is great for wet pavement/rain. however it is useless for snow. I walked like 10 feet on snowy dirt and the smoothness of the sole caused me to almost fall over a few times. I am hoping to get commando soles once the original wear out. Don't ask me if this is possible or not because I don't know, it is just a hope. Also the Indy's were one of the most comfortable Aldens for me personally. They rubbed against me bad in two spots but that went away after 5 short wears. If they hurt you really bad, I suspect they are not the right size OR the tru-balance last is not ideal for your feet. Either way I hope they get better soon.

i would go with the plain toe over the indy. i am waiting for my cap-toe in #8 shell (due this month, i think). #8 is more versatile. i was going to get the ultimate indy, but couldn't bring myself to spend the premium for boots that were going to be beaters for the most part.

I really wish they did an ultimate indy in black suede
