A few weeks back I had wonderful CS from the guys at each Epaulet shop when deciding on a Carmina shell boot.

- I've read that they run TTS and Narrow & that sizing up in

length and width is usually the way to go.


They only sizing I know is AE sizing, which I am usually

a 9.5E in strands & 10D in daltons.  I'm know this might

be hard to give advice for sizing but if anyone has any

input I'd really appreciate it.


Thx

Question: I am visiting Seattle later this month. Besides J Gilbert's, is there any store that stocks Alden that is worth checking out? (Or stores that stock shell shoes of other brands like C&J and Carmina?)

Thanks!

I couldn't agree more. A path that can truly lead to madness...

Great post a few pages back in regards to your sizing and what works best. I can imagine quite the trial and tribulations to get to that point

That sounds interesting. I love the plaza last. Do you have a link or pic of the boot you are referring to?

AoC is in Sequim which is a ferry ride and an hour's drive away from Seattle.
Plus they don't have a showroom.

There is no place to get Carmina or C&J in Seattle.
J Gilbert is about it when it comes to nice shoes.

Thank for your input. I may go the route suggested ordering 2 sizes then returning the one that doesn't fit.
Any recommendations where to find these shoes cheaper than shoe mart and with a good return policy?

1. tts (say, 10D)

3. tts plus half size in length (10.5D)

If you get a 10D and 10E, I suspect one of them will be right.

Most Alden retailers, if not all, will insist on full retail particularly if they are liberal with returns. Accepting returns is a service for which one usually must pay.

Note: I believe all Plaza lasted models on AoC's website are carried by JGilbert. At least that was the case the last time I checked.
