Discovered this forum and Alden a couple months ago, a little lighter in the wallet since then, and I make my first post upon receipt of these beauties. Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
Thanks all. Ordered them from frans boone, they call it the navy workboot in cigar, though I don't own Indy boots, they do look like them. Was skeptical about the crepe sole, but they are very comfortable out of the box, we'll see how they hold up....
I have an original Rosen ARG that is over 20 years old that's still going strong. Is that a Solo you're running?
So a few weeks back I had posted about my decision between 2 pairs of PTBs (Unionmade Officer Shoe vs Epaulet Tyrol)...
I ended up getting the Officer shoe (which I love) but knew right away I had to have the Tyrol as well..
My first pair of Alden's were on the Berrie and at the time, assuming I was a 10 on the braddock I went with a 9.5. I would not say the shoe was too big but just a little roomy in the toe area so when it came time to pick a size in the Leydon last (Officer Shoe) I chanced it on the 9.5 and have had no regrets.
So now I am faced with another Berrie PTB purchase and am struggling between another 9.5 that will be a touch roomy in the toe or sizing down to a 9 which should either be just like my 9.5 Leydon (perfection) or….to small..
any input would be greatly appreciated.
and pic just bc :-)
Been a SF member for ages but have been MIA for a while. Was wondering if anyone could help me figure out what sizing in need in a Barrie Last for Alden.
I presently where McNairy in a size 9us and in a Vans Era in 10.5. I know I really should go get measured but was wondering if anyone knew what sizing I should be shooting for going off these two shoe brands.
I was thinking 9.5us in a Barrie but I am starting to second guess myself and think i need a size 10.
If anyone can please shed some light on this it would be appreciated.
