So, Sazon, 103 Yesterday, and I'm in my Brown Chromex Ultimate Jumpers from LS. Granted I was inside at NYHS all day.

Very nice NYR!  These will be on my boot bucket list. 

 

It's 88F here today and I'm wearing my boots as well, and have been even when it was over 100F a few days ago.

^ Man, getting into Aldens with a bang!  First Aldens and going for shell!!  I guess that's the way to do it.  Congrats.  And isn't the anticipation of waiting for the boots to arrive the greatest?  Hope you enjoy!

I should be specific—by LWB I mean longwing bluchers, not the boots. Yeah, I mean, I have other pairs of nice shoes (Crockett & Jones, Allen Edmonds, et cetera), but the cigar LWB is like my holy grail shoe, and I figured what better time that now, right?

Congrats and welcome to the LWB shell club! Post some pics when you get them!

Anybody know if Alden makes any shoes on a crepe sole in 10EEEE? Size ten four E, that's not a type-o. I have a friend with some jacked-up feet who's basically only able to wear Asics (or maybe it's New Balance?) and has engaged me on the dress shoe topic.

He's in IT so his standard of dress is pretty low...if it's leather, it's dressy to him. If you're not outward-facing in IT, apparently black sneakers are acceptable icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

Anybody got any insight on where to find a 10EEEE crepe sole Alden?

Looks like they only go up to EEE.

 

He can try a 10.5EEE, that will be very close to the 10EEEE.  Conversely, a Barrie on 10EEE might work also.  Perhaps he can try something from The Shoemart irregular list to experiment with the fit.

 

Otherwise, Moulded Shoe will custom make shoes for him if he can drop by the shop.

Looks like some of the orthopedic Alden lasts are available in EEEE width.

The ortho lasts have very few styles available.  If you can find a Barrie last that fits, you will have numerous options.

 

The exception being the Trubalance last.

Have taken a shine to J Crew Alden dirty bucks. Their model is unlined and has metal eyelets. Never bought anything there. Do Aldens go on sale? If so, how much and when? TIA

Excellent!  That was my first pair as well, about 3 months ago.  Now I have 10 pairs icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

Insane? No! It just means he has good taste. Congratulations.
