I also wear the same size in the 5 last and Barrie

This thread is expanding faster than the universe. 100 posts every day or thereabouts...

FWIW, 12 in Nikes (Tiempo, FR3, Flyknit Ts). 11.5D in Tru/Barrie (could probably go down to 11E). 11.5D in Tremont (perfect), and a 12D in Plaza (a bit long, but width fine).

^ It's #3 all time in views with 3,000,000+ (WAYWT and old WAYWT are #1 and #2, respectively).  

 

and #4 all time in replies with 37,500, with random fashion thoughts squeezing into the top 3.

 

either way, it's #1 (by far) product based thread.

Folks, I'm in a bit of a bind here and could use your advice.

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.

You can return Aldens from J Crew just fine. Just only wear them on carpet.

I wear 12 in Nike and 9.5 D or 10C in Truebalance and Barrie. 10D in Plaza........................crazy, but I size my Nikes with enough toe room for running. They are Nike air by the way. I think you might be surprised that 10 is just right................

Once you know your size in a dress shoe, it's going to be much easier for people here to give you sizing advice. Also, having more shoes to try on is a good thing. Just use a shoe horn, walk on carpet when trying on, and return the pair(s) that don't fit.

My experience is the same as sevenfoldtieguy and Grendel --- same size in the AE 5 last and Barrie.

Actually, they're my old Newton laces from my running shoes.
