post #57931 of 87919

100 yrs: ... I've been dying for a pair of suede boots for some time, but never settled on the right last/sole/color combo. Fall here we come.




This too is a good option, at least for those of us looking for a non-Barrie, non-Trub lasted boot:

Very nice. Alas, nothing near my size. Aberdeen is TTS?

Seven, do you own this boot? If so, how is the fit?  There are some aberdeen shoes where I go with an E width (i.e. 966).  As a boot is it more roomy or on the narrow side?  It looks like a great boot, one I could use frequently.  All that are left are E widths though.  Also, is it a double waterlock sole?  Much thanks in advance...

Just won the oil stained leydon chukkas, hopefully they fit but at $213 shipped it's the same price as the meermin chukkas I've been waiting for

What size were they? If a 12D and you don't like them, I may be willing to receive them...

10.5D, just hope it's not too narrow, they are unlined though so should stretch

I think you and I take the same size.
I'm guessing that 10.5D leydon is going to be too small.

Yeah we do, and just placed the initial bid, and one for $10 more when I saw I was still winning, didn't actually expect to win them shog[1].gif

i checked those out. the context roy is on the trubalance, and i am ok with that*. i was looking for a boot that falls more on the casual side and was afraid that the leffot boot looked a little too refined. the j. crew snuff was an option but barrie + crepe turned me off.

*the indy boots i had in the past killed my feet so i sold them, and i avoided the trubalance since then. however, last time i was in J Gilbert i tried on the reverse-chamois indy and it was super comfortable. giving it a shot on these roy boots.

Hey Shawnc - I was one of the folks asking about the Alt Wein recently. And my interest was absolutely spurred by seeing that shoe on this site. If it wasn't sold out, I'd order one right now.icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

Can someone explain what is being depicted in this picture taken from the Alden factory?

oldsole_zps565db8ce.jpg

To me, it suggests that the original insoles are removed as part of the restoration. Is that correct? Perhaps it is then re-installed as a benefit to the original owner who would then not have to repeat the break in process?

If I were to consider purchasing pre-owned quality footwear, I would want fresh, flat leather insoles installed as part of the restoration.
