I tried these on again today at the office and am almost certain they will end up being too wide if I keep them.....CXL LHS from Leather Soul.....they are an 11D if anyone is interested please send a PM.....retail is $515....never worn outside and more pics are available if needed.

I'm not sure Alden is making it but I'm convinced I need a Barrie wingtip or cap toe shell boot in #8.

Any suggestions? Haven't found it on any site. I like the rounder toe of vs Plaza and others.

Love the Jumper boot from Leather Soul but I think it was a limited run.

My ideal boot. ID would be appreciated!va4u3agy.jpg

As a first Alden shoe, what would you suggest? I've heard people state that their cordovan shoes are really good so should I avoid their non-shell options.
I'm looking for something to wear as with casual wear, mainly chinos (I rarely wear jeans) and button downs. Don't really wear boots either, but I might be 
open to get a chukka or something smaller. 

The #8 2 eyelet chukka is a super versatile shoe. One of the reasons that Leathersoul states it is their best seller. If kept clean and well polished, can go with suits to jeans and chinos, I personally wear #8 and khaki chinos often. Cigar is an alternative but more rare. #8 and navy pants is a great combo. Hope this helps.

With suits - no.

Barrie 9D
Plaza 9.5D

Alden af60 or 53 may fit your bill. Also if you are a 10.5 check my classifieds have a new black captoe on modified for sell

Thanks! So if I'm looking at AF60/53 I'm looking at a specific last? Or do I order that style in a certain last?

Looks like Grant or Barrie to me in that pic.

AF53 is Trubalance last with commando sole from Alden of Carmel: http://www.alden-of-carmel.com/Shoes-Shell_Cordovan_High_Lace_Boot_160.htm

I have this boot and it is great. Not really dressy, more for denim and chinos, but a classic. Alden of Carmel has #8 wing tip boots listed, sizes a available may be limited. The Shoe Mart should have #8 wing tip boots as should Alden Madison Avenue in New York. Also consider Grant last cap toe in #8 for a dressier option. Same sources should have something, as well as Alden DC possibly. Grant and Barrie size differently for most people. Ask the retailers and here for advice of needed. Good luck.

I believe something like this would fit the bill? This is a #8 wingtip boot on the Barrie I got from Leather Soul last year.
