post #48091 of 91498

I'm looking at a pair of used Aldens. There are markings inside -   8c22  026   6    684

 

Can anyone tell me what they mean, and if you can identify the last?

Aberdeen last. 8c might indicate a narrow size 8. Good luck.

J Gilbert is awaiting a confirmation from Alden for production of a plaza last WT boot in #8.

None of them, the 684 at the end identifies the model number which is the shell full strap loafers on the aberdeen last.

I don't think any number identify the last. The 684 is the model number of the shoe. Once you have that, you can know the last.

Sazon, do you know if the J Gilbert make-up will come with a commando sole? I know Plaza is generally sleeker than Barrie, and I've seen Plaza boots made without the commando sole and with all eyelets instead of speedhooks. Do you have a link to images or info? Thanks again.

Occasionally after I wear my Indys or my Grant Cap toe, my knees really ache.  Anyone else run into this problem?  Solutions?  I feel pretty confident I have the correct sizes.

This is for me as well. I wear the same size in all three lasts. The toe box on the modified looks larger than the other two. The modified has a higher arch and I had some soreness on my right arch afer wearing for the first full day. In #8 I think modified can come close to looking like clown shoes.

I have never had this problem but I would be concerned if I did. Do they both have the same sole? If they are both double leather than maybe they are too hard? Do you notice any Overpronation or Underpronation?
