They are beyond comfortable!! I also have the PTB in snuff and find it to be extremely versatile. Might be a good alternative if you dump your Chukkas

You guys ever run into an issue where one sole is 1/4 wider than the other?

You know Sherman Brothers has been having periodic Alden sales for about as long as I can remember.
It's not like it's some deep dark secret.

I will need to stay steadfast in my search for used I guess...

nephew,
thank you

Went with the 8.5Es instead of defaulting to my usual 8.5D barrie size. Fit is a bit roomy, but with no heel slippage even without tying them as tightly as possible. Arguably room for an insole.

I'm convinced the only ways I can achieve a Mac-like shine are either taking pics just out of the box or photoshop. Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)










I
hereby retract any statements I've made on this thread about PTBs being too simplistic and unexciting.

Will try to post comparison pics of the Dover unlineds vs my cigar ptb when I have a chance.

Happy Friday, gents!

nephew,
wear only in good health
use the method for shoe care

Do all Aldens feature a cork footbed or does it depend on the sole type?

Yes. And they have been returned every time.
