    Try Nordstroms. They have some policy where they'll split shoe sizes. Dunno what the details are.

    Ive had this exact thing happen to 3 pairs of Alden boots I've had. First was a pair of indys. The shop I purchased them from tried to fix them (poorly) so they ended up being returned. The second time it happened was on a pair of #8 tankers. Alden repaired them free of charge. This past fall I purchased a pair of #8 captoe boots from j crew and it happened again (after wearing them less than 10x) They offered to repair them, but I just ended up returning them instead. I have very low confidence in their boots at this point.

    Quick cross post. I started a Hellbrand Leatherworks Appreciation thread. I wanted a belt to go with my Kudu Ultimate Indy boots, but I couldn't find what I wanted. Hellbrand made me a custom CXL belt at a reasonable price. It arrived today, and I ordered another one to match my LSxSE natural CXL conservation boots. The customer service is excellent.
