    I am currently wearing a Pitt Boot 7.5D, Barrie last. They look a lot longer (feet pressed against the bottom of the shoe test [​IMG]) but feels about right. Maybe around .5 inch longer. There is a nagging voice inside my head that they are too big (even though it feels good). I am thinking I can get away with a slightly bigger shoe because it's a boot.

    I am 7.5E in Brannock device.

    I am looking to get a Shell Cordovan Chukka boots (Barrie Last) and/or an Shell Cordovan Lace up medallion cap toe or lwb (Aberdeen Last).

    Should I get 7E on both or go with my true size instead?

    I apologize for the questions as I have very little experience with Alden.

    Thanks for your help.

    This has been a tough week on my shoe budget. Ordered the cigar captoe boots from Alden D.C. and my short wings from Leather Soul came in.

    I personally would not do that because the plastic will not let them breathe and could hold in damaging moisture. I am not sure if they are in the boxes if they need to be in bags or you could used old T-Shirts if you wish.

    @ Namor Would it possible to get a few more nice photos of you wearing those Indy's? I've been really looking at those Chamois ones since I like that leather a lot and some of your photos make me want them more... would really like a few more pics if that isn't trouble. Thank you!
