Unfortunately I don't have a local store that carries Alden, thus I am left with ordering via mail. How are Alden's sizes when compared to AE? My AE's are 6.5 D's and I require a tongue pad to fit properly in them, and no I do not own a pair of AE shoes in size 6. Whereas I fit into Ferregamo's 6.5 D perfectly, how does Alden compare to SF?
