+1 on the Barrie boots. "Alden shoes are a cult". There, I said it. They definitely have their own schtick. mediahound, you sold me on the Ravello LWB's, the J Crew boots and the Marlows. What's next? Kudos on the shameless self promotion too.

Different lasts? I have the unlined Tan on Leydon last as well. Wearing the unlined chukka is like wearing a pick of socks that have a sole attached to them... feel very soft, comfortable, cool, and flexible. But I would prefer the lined version for cooler/colder weather.

I have two pairs of calf LWBs and four pairs of shell LWBs all on the barrie last, and I haven't noticed any difference in sizing.

I like these very much!  Do you go tts, or do you size down 0.5?  (Same size as barrie?)

The snuff pair are Barrie while tan is Leydon as you mentioned.

Wow, well done sir.
Most of us complain about Alden's lack of qc, attention to detail, crappy website, bad recrafting experiences, etc. however, these boots give me selective memory and restore all my faith in alden.

Thanks... This last is in the mid-range of lasts, for me tts works... But the last chart reccomends downsizing a half size...

Agree that Barrie seems more a "boot" last.

I'm waiting on another pre-order with Epaulet for a Leydon lasted Cigar LWB. I can probably expect that sometime in 2015. smile.gif

Currently, 3 and 1 on the way.  I don't believe in owning tons and I buy and sell them periodically also.
