    New pair of Alden 986 Horween Shell Cordovan Handsewn loafers. Truly gorgeous. I believe these were used as a floor display at one point, so there are some surface scuffs, but they haven't been worn outside at all. Yes, this price is high, but they retail for over $600 + tax. These are made on the Alden "Van" last, and they generally run true to size, or very slightly large. PM me with ideas or offers. I'm open.

    Mind posting up the outsole measurements - for reference and sense check purposes? I think these may be my size in these shoes.

    Just over 11.5" from heel to toe, 2.75" side to side on the heel, and almost 4" at the widest part of the toe.

    I hope these help you gauge, but to be honest, outsole measurements are a poor indicator of size and fit. Do you have any other shoe sizes to compare this to? I can help you gauge from my collection on how they fit.

    I agree re: outsole measurements. I take a 9D in the barrie last, and 8.5UK in most C&J lasts (337, 348)

    From my understanding, people often take the same size in the Van and Barrie lasts, and even the Trubalance. Seems like this is perfectly your size. What are you thinking? PM me.
