what size are you normally? those are 9 M (medium?). If they were a 9 in barrie than they may have fit.

My quest to buy Alden laces.

I'm trying to get a pair of brown, dress, boot laces. Just like the ones on the Pitt boot below.

http://www.styleforum.net/g/i/615922/alden-black-shell-cordovan-pitt-boots-leathersoul/

 

Do any of you happen to know the "style number" of this exact boot, so that I might pass that onto the nice "general@aldenshoe.com" email person?

 

Thanks in advance,

Brandon

I havn't managed to size myself in the various Alden lasts yet.  

 

From what I understand (correct me if need be) sizing shoes and boots dont neccessarily translate.

for example if i knew i was a 12E in a Barrie in an Captoe Boot, I wouldn't necessarily be a 12E in a LWB or a LHS - and this is without the Calf / CXL / Shell complications

 

Tried on some TruBalance CXL Indys a year ago that were IIRC 9 no idea what width (stupidly i wasnt paying attention to size or width).  They were snug.

Alden does not make double monkstraps.

I'm about to do this with the brown CXL longwings from Leffot. I like that they are relatively light due to the double waterlock sole - makes it a great option for spring/summer/fall

I've struggled with CXL high boot offerings, but the chukkas and longwings suit me very well

So i'm taking the plunge on the straight tip blucher in #8...

i wear 11d in barrie shoes, and am thinking that i should just get 11e in the aberdeen. the barrie has always felt a hair too big but 10.5d is too small for sure.


thoughts on this logic?

Have you ever tried barrie in 11 C? I know that size is not common to find.

I hope to soon purchase the 403 model in Brown Chromexcel (Indy boot); however, after doing some research I have had some lingering concerns with sizing. Where I currently reside, there is no retailer that readily stocks the boots, hence, I will not be able to try them on. For comparison, I wear an 8.5 - 9 in most RW boots and an 8.5 in Clarks DBs; though I am unaware of my width as I have never made a shoe purchase that demarcated such.

In a word, how does the standard D width fit the average person's feet? Rather large? Rather small? (I understand how relative this is, but I would like a consensus.)

Still my favorite boot...Alden Indy Color 8 Cordo:

Right on. Wore mine out for the first time today, suede is comfy and always love double waterloc. This is a good makeup.
