post #70876 of 87602

Since Anatomica was mentioned recently here, I'm wondering if anyone's had experience with them?  I'm headed to Paris in the next couple of months and am considering popping in.  It would be epic if they had some cigar boots available.

If your measured size is a 10, like your athletic shoe size, most would recommend a 9.5 in the Indy boot.

The Alden straight tip blucher is on the Aberdeen last, IIRC. Most recommend going TTS or true to your brannock measurement. Good luck!

Just noticed this is your first post. Welcome aboard.

Or you could be a strange case like me...... I measure 10.5 C or D on the brannock. I wear 10 C in Barrie......yet I wear a 12 in Nike free, 11 or 11.5 in Adidas. I'm always amazed at people who wear tts in athletic shoes.

Hi all,

Would anyone be able to tell me what last these are on? Brown suede captoe bluchers, I've never seen any other Aldens like them. I believe they were a custom order.

Thanks in advance!

Lets see some pics of the outside of the shoe.

My best guess is Aberdeen, although they don't quite look pointy enough.  Maybe its because they are suede.

Same here, athletic shoes almost always run super small for me as well. I'm a 12.5 B/C brannock, but I need to size up to 13 in most sneakers, and some Nikes I actually need a 14. The only sneakers that I have to size down on are Converse All-Stars, I need a 12 in those.

Great, thanks for your help. They are indeed!

Ravello and cashmere on a Sunday morning. They are definitely my favorite and most distinctive Aldens. I've kinda gotten stuck on the purple laces of late.

^^^ Very nice Be.  Haven't seen pics from you in a while.  Didn't know you had ravello LWBs.  Lookin' great with the purple my friend.  Too bad our Vikings and Ravens couldn't represent the purple this weekend!

Thanks RTP, the Vikings started the season not having a ghost of a chance. There's always next year, maybe.

Nikes run pretty darn small. Most models I need a 9.5 or 10, while my Brannock is right around (or just under) a 9D. I do love my Lunar Controls though on the course!
