I believe so. But I have a pair of these:

And the toe box seems narrower to me than my Plaza's so it is often a hard shoe for me personally to wear. I am fine on the left foot but it is pretty tight on the left foot right on my pinky toe. I wear these shoes a lot now but with thin socks and hardly notice it.

Just my personal experience. Good luck.

Rats, I didn't know about the 20% off working on Aldens. And there I was, trying to save myself a penny by using the in house red phone to order, lol.
I would personally fgo with the dark brown. I have a pair from Tom and it is a great shoe.

Thanks for the help. As of now, I only have Barrie and TruBalance lasts. Thinking about treating myself to a pair of cap toe shell cordovan boots.

Dark brown is a very versatile color. I originally wanted a cap toe, but since it's on back order until Feb at ShoeMart, I treated myself to an earlier pair from J. Crew. (Part of my Bday gifts for myself )

I bought a slightly used pair of Alden cap toe bals and the previous owner has nails in the rubber heel holes: What would be the reason for this? My other Aldens (cap toe bluchers) did not originally come nailed at the rubber heels.

Maybe a local cobbler replaced the heel at some point?

Not sure, but I think it would be too soon for that. Shoes are pretty new:

It worked for me last week. Alternatively buy something that doesn't go on sale w/ the 20%, return it without receipt in store and use gift card for the shoes. A lot of work but if he's strapped I'm all for creative Alden acquisition strategies.

Almost all the Alden's I have have nails on the heel. Usually they don't stick that far out, unless the heel is worn down pretty signicficantly

I have some that no amount of brushing will eliminate...and I am wary of using too much paste...but that only seems to mute them- not eliminate...

Any tips? Anyone?

quick sizing question - I really don't have any leather soled shoes and the only boots I wear are Clarks (in a 10 that should be a 9.5, but I put some insoles in). I wear a 43 in CPs, 10 in Chucks - am I right in saying a 9.5 is probably my best bet for Aldens? D width, definitely.
