    No offense but I don't think you are right. This doesn't look like a big deal and shouldn't cause your ankle to roll. If you are unhappy then by all means return them. I'm not really sure these merit a refund or accommodation. I would also expect that any minor unevenness would correct itself with a little wear, but I can't guarantee that. You can see what BB will do - they may accommodate you.

    I may be totally off base here, but maybe B Nelson or someone could de-construct the shoe and take out the lining?

    None taken. Here's one more photo with a tape measure for reference. There's almost a 1/2" gap between the outside of the heel and the ground. I normally don't wear shoes down that far for years, even crepe.

    I'd return them since it is more than a cosmetic thing for you.

    Leffot has Abbeyhorn.

    Madison has shoe horns as well, I am unsure if they have the cordovan ones in, but they will have some for sure.

    Mike, if it's an Alden and you've never heard of it, then it doesn't exist. [​IMG]

    That looks like a different issue from what you were saying before. Yeah, I can see how that might not be comfortable. Better to return than to wear something you aren't happy with/comfortable in.

    I'm new to Alden, and looking to buy a shell cordovan boot in #8. Any suggestions as to which style or last, as well as where to look would be super helpful.
