I have searched, but I am triple checking just to be sure before I order those #8 captoes.  The Grant last runs true to size, correct?

According to frans boone website (and also based on the chisled look of the toe) the #8 indys are on the plaza last. They also offer a ravello indy on the plaza but only size 12 left....

The dark sole and relatively dark shade of ravello makes this one of the dressier Alden shoes I own on the barrie last...

Where did you pick these up? After purchase of the cap toe bluchers, I would be eager to also pick up the boot.

I'd guess Alden DC. I wonder if we'll start to get a drizzle of whiskey now since Alden SF had some whiskey LWBs. Maybe Alden Madison next?

Alden DC.  It is a regular makeup for them

Thanks for the love. I picked these up via the shoemart. I have been debating for about 2 months whether to get them or not and since nobody else would buy them I finally caved. They are my first pair of grant last and I like them. I am a 10D in Barrie and went for a 10.5 in these, worked out perfect. Breaking them in today and so far so good. By the way your pick on here with color 8 captoe's and french blue rivet chinos is finally what pushed me over the edge to buy, so thanks are in order to you.

The above photos appear more Plaza than Grant, IMO.

Thanks shaunw, plaza sounds right.

When I first saw the pic I thought it looked quite similar to my JGilbert NST boot on the Plaza.

All makes sense now ...

It's worth repeating, if Alden went to only one last - and it was the Plaza - that would be fine with me. biggrin.gif
