Greetings. I have been lurking for some time. Just joined and this is my first post. Today I received new Alden cordovan monk straps. I normally wear 13E. The shoes (gorgeous BTW) feel great on my feet but when walking there is a bit more heel lift than I would like (without tightening the strap). Can I assume that as the shoes get softer the lift will diminish or are the shoes too big? I have read that Alden shoes run larger than true sizes. Thank you so much for your help.

Once the sole breaks in the heel slippage should subside.

Thank you so much for the quick reply. I am pleased to hear that because I didn't feel going smaller would be good.
