Most of my Aldens are boots and easily fit within the bags that came with them. The only smaller bags I have came with some chukkas, and is a squeeze to fit them. NAMOR got me sorted on some boot bags though for them. icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

Does anyone know where I can find a pair of ptb boots in Plaza last?

Preferably danite or commando sole. Not even going to be picky about whether its calf or shell!

J Gilbert in Seattle stocks the #8 PTB boots on the Plaza. I think the next batch arrives in the fall. Call Yenni and ask to get on the pre-order list.

So I'm recently engaged and am in a need of a black shoe for the wedding (I'll most likely be wearing a charcoal suit). Should I go Alden 907 or 932? Leaning towards the 907.

907:


932:


Third option is the Allen Edmond Park Ave, but would prefer the Alden I think.

Looks like The Shoe Mart received a restock of their whiskey nst shoes. Almost every size available except 8D and the very large sizes:

I haven't seen many pictures of whiskey NST shoes in this thread. Anyone own this style, or have any opinions on it?

Look at the FAQ in my signature, and see the category:
"Cordovan: A Photo Gallery of Some of Mac's Shoes"

There are a few photos of this style.

My vote is for the 907.

Dude, Alden does not use dainite. That is British Rubb(ish)er.

J.Gilbert is where you want to go. They specialize in the Plaza.

If you fit in the Park Ave, go with that; just as good for a simple black balmoral and can be had for half the price. But both have multiple fit (wide) options.

Yeah for a standard black dress shoe for a wedding I wouldn't bother with Alden unless you really have cash to burn, or you'll use it on a daily basis afterwards.

I've tried on both the AE Park Avenue and the Alden 907.  Yes, I like Alden. But in this case I wasn't blown away by the Hampton last.  You can put a nice shine on the AEs and they'll good.  But, obviously, you have to be happy with the shoes.

Its your wedding, you wear whatever shoes make you happy.
