Any Thoughts?

imo, not acceptable. the meeting point of the welt is sloppy, too. is this their current standard?

I was sized up at Alden NYC and between a 6D and 6E, but the 6D was just a bit tight on my instep when laced. I purchased a 6E, which fit well at first but they have since loosened considerably. Now the quarters close up all the way when laced and I still get a bit of slippage in the heel.
I am thinking of sending these to Alden to get relasted in a 6D. Do they still do this and would you all suggest it?


I did inquire recently about 'relasting' at Alden (making boot smaller) and politely they said 'No', adding that the leather is cut specifically for each boot and can not be resized. But hey email them, no harm Alden seeing many really require/wish this service.

Regards suggestions - most advised me not to even bother going down the resizing route - just sell the ones you have buy a pair a better fit. hagwe

Kathy at Alden DC still has a few pair of whiskey Indy boots available, and everyone needs a little whiskey in their life.

Or maybe a ravello wt boot?  This will have to be the last pair I purchase for a while (maybe the year).  I am a huge long wing aficionado

that's not really a steal price
they go down to 400something
