    Thanks sazon, the thread was getting a little heavy. And no, I'm not going to talk about my feelings.

    Hi folks. Anyone here have this boot from Tres Bien?
    http://tres-bien.com/brand/alden/commando-boot-leather-black

    I asked what last and width they were but apparently Alden don't give them that information?? They did say they thought it was Leydon last, E width.
    The model number is 40554H and written inside is 3H26Y022 15 M3807C, if that means anything to anyone.

    10D Trubalance is a good fit, with room for thick socks, 10D Barrie J Crew cap toe is slightly narrow.

    So I'm thinking...10E on the Leydon?

    Don't you have duck boots or equivalent? Neither of those are waterproof - comfort is key at a game.

    I was lucky enough to score an Alden LWB in Ravello from Alden of SF this week that a forum member was returning...I might have a problem, picked up 2 pairs of Alden's in a week! This is my first pair of shell shoes.

    I think the color is a bit lighter than they appear in the photo, but much darker than the old Ravello.

    I've been dark for a while. Even though I have a lot of catching up to do, thought I'd share this

    Fantastic view PP32. The boots are nice too. How do they work for hiking? Welcome back.

    This is, IMO, Alden's best looking longwing (followed by color 8 in both dark and antique edge, then whiskey, then cigar / black). Great purchase and wear in good health.

    Interesting color in those Ravello LWBs. They appear to have the slight olive tone that some cigar shell has.

    Thank you, sir. Indys were very comfortable. I'm tempted to try them on a more difficult trail and see if the same is true. Commando sole is a plus.

    Your welcome PhiPsi. I'm a big fan of the commando sole too.

    Look great but exactly like my cigars in that light. Nice score.
