2.  How many wears should I give it until I give up on the side digging into my ankle?  Left boot feels like a million bucks, right boot is almost giving me black and blues digging into the ankle with every step, have some band-aids on to lessen it but this is the 3rd or 4th time I've worn these and its not really easing up out as hoped, have work looser and tighter - should I give it a handful of other wears?  Sizing is dead-on otherwise.



I wore boots daily for work for 50 yrs never found a pair that didnt break in eventually .that part of the leg is pretty sensitive try moleskin it comes in two thickness lot better than bandaids and shave the area you put it on first.It wiil last thru 2 or3 showers if you wear the boots daily otherwise just when you wear the boots .I always wore (still do)high quality wool socks There is a company in vermont called Darn Tough that makes hands down the best boot socks money can buy

my latest aquisition. The unlined PTB No. 8 from Alden DC. No luck at Tassels nor LSH caused 2 years of desperation.
It was a total pleasure to deal with Kathy. Especially her voice on the phone sounds so incredible mellifluous.

Fresh out of the box with one coat of Alden Leather Defender

shot with flash - i wonder wether Alden changed the in-house dye? I do miss the typical aubergine lacquer/glace (exact term in German: Appretur)

Looks like it could be a site error. They have the color 4 wingtip boot showing up but no sizes available. I think they've had that issue a few times, the strang thing is the price is different from when I bought them last year so maybe they got more.
