Only 10.5 and 12 are available. Once you try the other sizes and select a width (even the other sizes shown) you will get a pop-up box telling you they are not available. Makes a guy wonder why those sizes stay on the list ......


It got all of us to visit their website, right?  facepalm.gif  Who knows...

And I'm hoping it doesn't get a little redundant with the #8 shell when my cap toe boots arrive sometime in August. satisfied.gif

Yes it did. smile.gif

The guys at Sky Valet are good to work with. I've bought Alden, EG, and C&J from them.

I am all for the dirty buck; a classic with the red brick sole.  However, even with the 25% off, 400+ dollars is much too high for this shoe IMO.  I'm not even sure these are goodyear welted.  Can you have these resoled???  I think there are other  options for essentially the same shoe for much less.  If you are like me, wanting to maximize your shell acquisitions, I would save the $ on offerings like this, by going with alternatives.  I bought these from RL last fall with their 35% sale plus the extra 15% kicker for about $225.  Not sure Alden will make it much better...

j crew also has kenton bucks, where are like $200., although probably not nearly as good:

i guess i'll see how well i like the aldens when i receive 'em.

This is the exact reason why TSM frustrates me.

Those BLUE Alden's are SUPERB. I just saw them in person at ALDEN SF this past weekend. I didn't have the stones to buy them though....

nephew,
alden only makes it loafers (lhs, full strap, tassels and monks) on a single sole. they have refused to make any loafer on a double sole even custom. c&j make the polo marlow which has a double sole on both the lhs and tassels. as you know horween is the worldwide supplier of shell cordovan

Thanks Uncle.  I thought it might be another maker, but I hadn't seen the Horween stamp like this on C&J before.  I do not remember if it said Made in the USA.

perhaps a redundant question, but how does a 8D and a 7.5E Indy compare ?

For comparison, I've had 9E and 9.5D 403s back-to-back and the 9E was obviously shorter, and maybe slightly wider (noticeable at the heel). With my foot, the 9E was passable but the 9.5D was the better fit.
