I'm sorry but in zazaza's defense: (a) this is the alden thread, not the B&S forum and (b) if you want to sell a pair of Aldens, it's kind of ridiculous to post about the exact price for a half-off deal you wrangled from a retailer, wear them, and then a month later post them for sale at a far higher price.

Otherwise, yes, it is a reasonable price.

You sound like you need one... Chill out with the profanity. We're all adults here, I'm assuming... He simply called you out.  Not a big deal.

Guys, we have an entire subfora dedicated to buying and selling. To try and sell your boots/shoes here is against policy and unfair to the other sellers.

I'm not a mod, but this is getting annoying...

I'm curious why J Crew would exchange a pair of worn shoes for a new pair only because of a sizing issue. What is J Crew going to do with a worn pair of shoes?

Sorry in advance if this is dumb question but would a 9.5D fit similar to a 9E in width? The reason I ask is because I was at a local store looking to try on some Alden 907s (Hampton last) in a 9E and the salesman brought out a 9.5D which he said would have similar fit. I was just curious if he was just fudging it to make a sale or if there's some truth to that statement.

There is truth to it. I can wear both 9.5E and 10.0D in Barrie, for example.

FWIW J Crew is famous for generous return policies on almost all of their items. They may scrutinize Aldens or whatever a bit more but they take a lot of stuff back

He's fudging it a bit sure, but if they fit in your opinion, then they fit.

It's your call so you can't go wrong since you are the only one who can judge the fit.

Not "just a stock #8 LWB"

Would you say it's "just" a stock '67 vette or a '56 Porsche 550 spyder? No! Those Aldens are classic and beautiful! Nice post!

I have found that the two are different enough that they are not interchangeable. For my feet anyway...

I wear a 9E in Barrie and Trubalance. I once bought a pair of shell boots in 9.5D and eventually determined that they didn't work for me. Yes, the width is comparable but the length was different and they always seemed a bit off. The 9.5D was comfortable enough to wear but they looked a little weird to me and the fit was off enough for me to decide to sell them.

If you try them both on again, check to see where the shoe bends and really feel where the arch and ball of your foot is placed. It could be fine for you but it wasn't for me.
