To each their own I guess... too much contrast for my tastes.

Totally agree, these look like excellent casual shoes. And I am really tempted to order them.

 

I just bought my first pair of Aldens (J. Crew Indy 405s - the first time I ever bought a shoe in that price range) a couple of weeks ago after pondering the investment for almost two years. Ok, I have to admit that one of the reasons why it took me so long to finally buy them was the fact, that I had not been back NYC during that time wink.gif. But, I have been so happy with them, that I just pre-ordered a second pair in a different color. Can't wait for them to arrive.

 

So question about those shoes above:

Since I only know the Truebalance last, and have no chance of trying different ones anywhere close to where I live, does anyone know how the Truebalance last compares sizewise to the Barie last of the shoes above? I wear a 8.5D in the Indys. Any help would be highly appreciated since I'd prefer not having to send the shoes back to Frans Boone because they absolutely do not fit.

 

Thanks Gentlemen.

P.S. Seems like Alden is becoming like a little 'vice' for mewink.gif. This thread is the major reason why I signed up for SF - it's a pleasure reading the new posts every time I log in biggrin.gif.
