Can someone give me a little hope please? I ordered the Jcrew captoe cordovan boots in size 9D (medium). I am a 8.5EE in AE 5-last strands. 8 and halves fit perfectly in length.

 

So do you think the 9D will work for me? I'm worried about the length and heal slipping. Since theyre boots, would wearing thicker socks and tightening the laces help? The only other boots I have are chukka boots and those don't lace all the way to the ankles, so I was wondering if the lacing of these boots would help. Since I'm pushing it a little with the width as well, will that help in stabilizing the fit?

 

I'm just kicking myself for snoozing on making the purchase a couple days ago when 8.5's weren't sold out. Can someone with alden/allen edmonds shoe experience help me out with my first alden and first boot purchase? These are the most beautiful shoes I've ever seen and wish I could make it work.

as I've said before unipair.. get some 11.5 barrie/12 grant offerings in hand, and we'll be making parcel services rich via shipping back and forth across the world :rotflmao:

 

 

 

We are working on ordering larger sizes for our stock.  :fonz:

Braves are the shits and will win another World Series to go with the many playoffs and world series they have won over the last few many years.  

 

Bucs.  Really.

 

I guess Haters are the price of consistent domination and replacing the New York Yankees as the epitome of Sports Excellence.

Thanks for the heads up!

I agree.  I think the lhs model lends itself really well.  I have the lhs in brown cxl. and think it is one of the best-looking casual models Alden makes.  The navy looks just as good and I am struggling with not acquiring it.

How?  Because the Cards SUUUUUUUUUUCCCCCCKKKKKKKKK.  What they do when they come to Wrigley is just criminal.  Year in, year out, they are very, very bad guests.

First, and most importantly, thanks tampatravel. Though this does present me with an interesting dilemma. I ordered the color 8 LWB's last week and was pretty excited to get them. Then a couple of posters indicated that theirs arrived with the black welt, not the lighter welt from the website. I had pretty much made up my mind that the darker welt is a deal-breaker. However, I just called jcrew and they are going to honor the code and take 25% off. I really like the lighter welt but at slightly less than $500, I think I'll like these as well. If by chance mine arrive with the lighter welt then this is really a good news story. If not, it decision time.

To complicate matters, I've done this dance before. The reason I opened a jcrew account was because they offered me 30% off of their color 8 captoe boot. I liked it but didn't love it so I returned it. I've been kicking myself ever since.

Again, thanks tampatravel. I'll be in your neck of the woods next week. Coming down to see my oldest and his family.

I ended up ordering some color 8 chukkas late last night. Thanks for the heads up tampatravel! Fingers crossed.

I still haven't gotten my J Crew Color 8 PCT boots I ordered the last time one of their sales worked on Aldens. Here's a quick breakdown of the order:

8/13 - order placed, boots on backorder
9/14 - order shipped (to my old address unfortunately)
9/19 - delivery attempted, then forwarded to new address
9/29 - processed through sort facility in Greensboro, NC (keep in mind I live in Florida)
9/30 - depart USPS sort facility

And then no updates since then. I literally moved about 5 miles from my old place to my new place, but instead of forwarding the package directly there, it somehow got forwarded to North Carolina and now I don't know where it is. I used to like USPS but they're really pissing me off here.

Speaking of domination, anyone see the dodgers last night?

Thanks patrick_b & Shawnc for the kind words.

 

This poses a dilema for me as well...do I get the cap toes before I pass my state test? I'd like to have them as a "treat" for passing.

 

Hmmm.....decisions decisions...

 

What should I do?
