I put in one shoe per slot since.


Yes those are terrible for Aldens. If shell is left in there too long it turns to calf. crazy.gif

Be careful when wearing them, always wear socks, because you really don't want to catch cancer.

This is correct. Your boots need to be packed in a box and sent UPS red to my house in Toronto. We have skilled people who can handle this problem for you. I'll take it to them personally devil.gif

It's the universal health care.

I got a pair and they are definitely NOT Barrie lasted. I bought them in 12D, fits really well and is very comfortable. I have an 11.5D CXL PTB Barrie and it's really wide on my foot; and an 11.5D in two J.Crew boots (chukka and perf-captoe). So I do know how Barrie lasted shoes feel.

I snagged some 403s in 11.5C, hope they work out biggrin.gif Thanks for the link, OP!

Is that contrast stitching? From where did those come?

The pairs at eye level will wear out sooner.

i wanted to show you guys this black dot on the inside of one of the boots. it looks like a chunk of dried paint or something and this is the best picture I could find of it. It looks alot worse than it is, the color normally blends right in with the boot. Is this normal or some sort of defect?

If that bump is a problem for you J. Crew has excellent customer service.  I mean EXCELLENT.  I don't see why they wouldn't ship you out another pair so long as you haven't put any wear on the soles.  Give them a call I think you'll find them extremely accommodating.

so I've been told the grant last runs more true to size than other alden lasts, and I wanted to see if I could get some sizing advice:
I have a pair of Ravello brixtons from epaulet, which are on the barrie last for those that don't know, and the fit in a 9d hugs the sides of my feet slightly, not in an uncomfortable way, but almost as though it molded to my foot after a few wears. I know some people say the barrie is roomy but the 9d doesn't feel that way to me at all.
I also noticed that the length is about a quarter inch longer than my other boots, don't know if the barrie last is typically longer like that, but I brought it up to give an idea of how it is.
So, I'm planning on getting the 9.5D in the grant last. good idea?

Something terrible happened today gents. I found out that in a plaza last my size is most accurately an 11 1/2 B. where can I find a color 8 wing tip boot in shell cordovan in an 11 1/2 B?

Awesome! Mine still haven't arrived but Fedex can run late so hoping they get here today

And from what you're saying, it sounds like they are indeed on the Leydon last, which would be FKKN boss icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif
