    I also have the shell version of those shoes, and have ordered the exact shoe as pictured. Aberdeen last if I'm correct.

    Aberdeen is my favorite...it is the best looking one if it fits you.

    They also make the exact style in the modified last, was curious to try but decided to stick with a last I'm experienced with.

    Great classic shoes!

    I have an ancient pair of AE Saratogas which are over 25 years old
    and similar to the Aldens, but clunkier. Unfortunately, nothing
    I have tried from Alden in recent years fits.

    I love my cordo shells. The suede look fantastic. Wear them well.

    I've got them in Cigar too, with the unfinished sole edges - would prefer them on the Hampton, as the Aberdeen is a taste wide. Overall I think they're better in #8, as just a trad/CBD shoe. especially since the ones I have have, and the suede ones will work for the weekend.

    Front right - can just see the edges.
