J Gilbert does a #8 shell plain toe boot on the Plaza. May work for you?

It is my favorite plain toe boot, high boot or chukka, on any last, hands down.

Tried posting this earlier, but don't know what happened to my post...I'll try again.

 

Quick question, guys: I just picked up my first pair of LWB's on a Leydon last in a 8 D.  I wear a 7.5 D Indy boot.  Do you guys also have a lot of room in the toe area?  My big toe nails are right underneath the inside brogues, which are circled red in my pic.  I can stick my index finger behind my heel when my feet are scrunched forward. Thanks in advance for the help!

BTW, I just ordered the 9901 (black shell, standard lined) and think it's pure class:

 

 

Nice pick up. Black shell is underrated. My only pair is a longwing that I bought after some encouragement from Sevenfold (thanks man) and am glad I did. It's one of the more frequented shoes in my humble collection. I've been eyeing the plain toe for a while now and would love to see some pictures or one of your videos once you have them in-hand.

Great collection. Are those light blue laces on your blue suede plain toes? Well played.

Is the Alden Shop of San Francisco owned by Alden?  Their contact email is online@aldenshoe.com, they ship internationally, and they have a factory restoration kit.  Never noticed all that before.

i thought none of the alden stores (madison, dc, sf, carmel) were owned by alden, but that they were franchises?

Is there any special care/instructions for taking care of the welt for the Indy boots? I have the 403 and the welt is darkening in color in places where I accidentally got some saphir renovateur on. I recall the welt being much lighter when I got it, and it's a darker, and nicer, brown now - but really dark where the reno got on it.

DC and SF are owned by Alden. NYC and Carmel are not

I was under the impression that Kathy had a bunch of them in stock.  Not sure what their stock is like now.  You should call and ask for all of their whiskey options in stock in your size.


I can't get enough from Tremont last. I have Leffot's Atoms and this last wears extremely well.

Good looking Whiskey SW.

My unlined snuff suede PTB from Unionmade is probably my tightest fitting Barrie shoe (same size as my other Barrie models).

Hi sevenfoldtieguy - rydenfan,

well - i wondered myself a bit - the fit in the 1/2 smaller Suede PTB was snuggy but definitely better than in my ususal size.

The unlined Shell No. 8 PTB i ordered yesterday at Alden DC i decided my usual Barrie size neverthless because Shell doesn't stretch that much.

You also actually need a #8 LWB, a #8 PTB, a Suede Chukka, a boot with a commando sole, a Cigar Indy, and a Ravello LWB.
Get going!

Happy addiction.
