Perhaps an example of an ill fitting shell shoe:

I have this model and it doesn't even faintly resemble the looks of this pair.

Yeah, that's a pretty severe case... That said, a Google image search of alden cordovan chukka along with a search of this thread shows that the majority of chukkas have at least a moderate amount of rolling. It comes with the territory with the model.

How much room do you guys give your big toe in cordovan shoes?

 

The store I was in recommended 1-2mm distance, however the shoes I tried on were way too uncomfortable. Think the guy was trying to sell me an ill fitting shoe. :/

1-2 cm maybe, more if you have a long arch length.

Thank you, that's what I was thinking as well.

Spent the morning brushing and edge dressing my first Aldens: #8 PTB, now 3yrs old and worn often. I regret not taking before pictures, they were beat up pretty good.



Roys got no love, I like them this way.

Whatever is the most comfortable. There is no hard rule.

My new cigar chukkas from Alden SF near the end of their Mac-method break-in period. I, personally, am looking forward to some big-time beefrolls!

My chukkas tend not to have the presence of a lot of "rolls" like many do - but partially that is because no two feet are the same, nor are any two walking styles the same. Chukkas are great at showing the wonderful qualities of shell.

Yeah grant last is so nice, really wish more retailers used it more. Should get the cigar grant last boot from Alden DC but have the C&J dark brown and cognac carmina boots on order
