Most go down 1/2 size from normal. I can actually go a full size down from my normal tennis shoe size. I would say it depends, definitely go smaller than your regular tennis shoe size.

I suspect it is the color variation problem during the dyeing process.

I have heard uncle mac said if the spot really bothers you, you should contact Alden directly, tell them / email them with picture, and return the shoes to Alden for re-dyeing.

I am not sure it can 100% fix the problem, but you should try.

This is what I use. Probably the same one you are referencing

You guys know that was created by REguy and originated in this thread.

#8 LWB Maiden Voyage

 

I got them from Hunt Club Clothiers in Cincinnatti on sale, from pre-increase prices (I bought them literally the day before the price increase).  Not saying exactly what deal I got but they took good care of me.

 

These shoes are a dream to wear.  I never want to take them off my feet.

 

 

Wind was blowing so I think it made the trousers drape funny.  Let me know what you think.

I did not know however I'm not surprised to find that out. It has been an invaluable resource for me. I like the top view side by side comparison it really illustrates the differences in lasts very well.

I started the break in method about five minutes after I opened the box. Then I received an email regarding a couple of other specialty cordovans. I couldn't find anything for six months now I find four pairs in a month and a half. The shoe mart version is a Barrie last with leather soul?

Yes, Shoe Mart is also leather sole on the Barrie. However, mine ended up coming from Alden NYC and I cancelled my Shoe Mart order. I am pretty sure mine will look identical to yours but will post pictures tomorrow when I get home.

BTW, which other Alden exotics are you considering?

Should I order LWB in 8.5? The 8.5 Jcrew perf cap toe was just a bit too snug but I've read that the barrie lasted boots can be a little tighter fitting than LWB.

Also is $540 a good price for a pair of new LWBs?

For shell, that's an excellent price.
