No longer an Alden virgin. Just purchased my first pair. #8 chukkas in 10D. Is a heel slip initially normal? It feels snug until I walk and feel a slight heel slip. There wasn't a smaller size available for me to try on. I felt I could make it work with a heel pad or something. Am able to return, if anything.
Thanks in advance
Congrats on your first (and not last) pair of Alden. If they are a double leather sole I believe a little slip is expected untill the soles break in. Do you know what last they are on? Do you have any other shoes to compare sizing? Where does the widest part of your foot end up in the boot?
