I ordered a pair of size 10 aldens on a truebalance last for J. Crew because I thought I wore an 11 in Nike and an 11 in redwing Beckman chukkas (though they are a little big on me), 12 in Bed Stu, 11 and an 11 in Timberland.
Well my surmising I wore an 11 in Nikes was wrong and they are actually all 12s. Panicked that I ordered too small of a pair of Aldens I tried to cancel the order quickly to reorder a bigger size. Well the order had already been processed but customer support suggested I just order my new pair and return the other ones.
I was indecisive about whether to go with an 11 or a 10.5, but I chose the former. Now I'm wondering how strict their return policy is. Are Aldens packaged in such a way that it'd be evident if I tried one on? Is there a particular one I should try my luck with first in the scenario they only accept untouched shoes - again this is contingent on how Aldens are packaged. More and more I'm wondering if I should've just went with the 10.5.
