Not to worry. As a father of daughters, I can unequivocally say your time spent with her doing such things is much more important than a picture of your footwear. nod[1].gif

Not that I know of. There are a few shops that sell a very limited selection of basics (e.g., Hanig's in the John Hancock building). May be a few others here and there, but I don't think you will encounter anything rare or unusual.

There is Haberdash, which also has a fairly limited selection.

Anyone with more experience know what kind of a shoe town Chicago is? Live in the area, but can't say I know it very well. Definitely doesn't seem to cater to the Alden enthusiast, as we are seeing.

and that was quite possibly one of the most disturbing things I have ever seen, those shoes are being abused I'm calling SVU...

Chicago is specifically not a shoe town. There are several AE stores and the few mentioned above which stock Alden. You have several good BBs (the Rookery and MI Ave), Paul Stuart and a few other retailers (Neiman's, POLO), etc. The hidden/unknown gem is MorrisandSons. They sell John Lobb and Edward Green and have other good stuff.

I assume this also includes the TB last. If so, this is terrifically rare. Now if we only had Mac's feet we wouldn't have to care about lasts. biggrin.gif

Mac: You have posted before about the Aberdeen last and that you thought it - above all others - was a difficult fitting last (I'm paraphrasing but think I have it right). I'm curious as to why you think this?

Hope you don't mind answer this, but do you have flat feet? I'm curious how you could be a 9D on all the various sizes.
