Alden and BB (which are both split-toe and are substantially similar) - medium and large

So now, unless I have lasted shoe trees for some of my English shoes, I use almost exclusively:

AE full toe/JosABank full toe - medium
Alden and BB - large

All of my shoes would fall within the following US sizes: 9, 9.5, or 10.

I am one who generally prefers my trees to fill the entire toe box. Some don't really care about that, which is fine with me.

Thanks Seven,

 

This is very helpful.  Fully answers my question.

 

I will order large.

Gents, please forgo the purchase of a half a pair of Aldens and get yourselves a proper digital camera. Shoot without flash. Perhaps visit Tumblr for some visual cues. I'm being a bitch here, but much of the photos here are...unflattering to your most excellent footwear.

Wonderful.

I have the BB version of this shoe. But whether it's the BB Version or the factory 2160 (pictured), this shoe should be in every businessman's wardrobe. nod[1].gif And so should the 2161.

Yep - that's why I identified it as the 2160 in my post. biggrin.gif Heels are different; so is the last.

Wow, that's interesting.  I'm the same size --- 7.5D Barrie/Trubalance/Modified and 8.0D in others.  And the Epic Small's are pretty tight in some of my boots, although I could see room for it being slightly larger in other boots.  So, Bakes, in regards to your question, I think you'd probably be happy with a Large since imolazhp is able to get a medium Epic into his size shoe.

from that angle, it looks like your foot is too wide for the shoe and/or excessive stretch of the cxl

I'm a wide in Barrie. I'm thinking this may be true for you, too.
