That may be the perfect shell bal if only it had a captoe. baldy[1].gif

Shell on the plaza last is great - shoe or boot.


Sounds like you're talking about the attorney shoe if you don't mind the perferated cap toe.

From what I've heard it's comparable to the barrie but slightly narrower.

I have the black shell captoe bal (perf tip) on the Snap (Alden for BB). A great shoe in its own right. I have the color 8 shell captoe bal (straight tip) on the Hampton. In a perfect world, said color 8 shoe would be on the Plaza. biggrin.gif

Probably my least favorite last.

Thank you Seven,  that was the kind of reassurance that I was hoping for.

 

Even since I stepped in to the world of Alden I have developed "Shoe Fit Paranoia".  Meaning I'm never confident that my shoes fit as well as the should/could.

Out of curiosity, why is it your least favorite?

This is a terrible thing to have happen. I too suffer from this problem. All of my 11.5D barrie last shoes could and should be 11E confused.gif

As long as they aren't uncomfortable, don't sweat it too much.

Have you actually seen an Alden cigar or ravello belt for sale anywhere? I gave up in frustration a while ago after searching for both of those colors (in shell) for months...

PLEASE let me know if you know of any place or person selling either of the above in size 34/35..

(Please excuse the crap iphone photo and carpet!)

 

Got this black calf NST as a christmas present from my cousin, only my second pair of Alden's (Cigar shell cap toe boots were the first). They fit well and are very comfortable, but I'm not exactly sure I'm ok with black shoes in a casual setting, I just don't know what to wear them with. I was thinking about getting blue laces to make them pop a bit more, and I generally wear jeans or chinos. Also, no experience with caring for calf, shell is just so easy and low maintenance. Was hoping for some advice from the pro's.
