This is interesting stuff. If I couldn't make it past 5 miles I would consider that the shoes didn't fit. I can think of two occassions where I knew I was going to be doing crazy amounts of walking - the first I switched from sneakers into my Brooks Bros Aberdeens because I could literally walk 1000 miles in those, and the second time I switched from my sneakers to my GS natty cxl traveler's because those are up until this point the best loafers I've come across. If you have any sneaker recommendations that accommodate a high instep and don't run super wide I'm all ears haha - haven't found anything comfortable yet.Great post.
All feet are different but I would not give up on the Leeds/511 just yet. I grew up and spent most of my life in Manhattan, walk a few miles a day, and many more on Saturdays and Sundays. The only shoe that has ever been comfortable enough for me past the 5 mile mark, is the Wilbert/511 which has a poron insole and a blown rubber outsole. If I know we are going to be walking more than 5 or 6 miles, I throw caution/fashion to the wind and wear sneakers.
I have been considering converting a few other leather or suede PTBs to more comfortable "walking soles" when the leather soles on those shoes wear out. I no longer have a 9 to 5 job so my outfits are more casual these days (i.e. jeans or chinos and an ocbd) so I can get away with shoes (not sneakers) that do not have traditional leather soles. I have also found that even a rubber sole protector can add a bit more comfort.
On the other hand, none of this may matter and you might just need a different size and/or last.
I rock Maritimes and sometimes my lone pair of Kirkwoods, although the Kirkwoods or mostly beater shoes by now.
looks good! I'm guessing it was a Euro shop you went to, all those VW's and Audi's in the backround, IIRC didn't you used to have a GTI?
The new Supra is a Euro car other than the Toyota steering wheel and suspension tuning. Just about everything else is by BMW. The Euro shop I take my Audi to was working/modifying one not to long ago. Such a cool car!looks good!

Never had a VW; past couple of cars have been BMW and Subaru.looks good! I'm guessing it was a Euro shop you went to, all those VW's and Audi's in the backround, IIRC didn't you used to have a GTI?
I also have walnut daltons. I have a hard time with matching the color, I got AE's cream, but it's not the same shade, it's more yellow/orange and looks weird on the wing's and heel counter.
Other than the bodywork/design it's a BMW Z4 and I'm sure a few other bits and bob's.The new Supra is a Euro car other than the Toyota steering wheel and suspension tuning.

I like the Acheson a lot. Have a pair in Olive suede and they always bring a smile to my face!
Model 9854... Real classics! Rats, you fled NY, aka Escape from New York?I believe I have the exact same pair of Aldens. I haven't worn them for a few months, as sadly they are stranded back home in NY.
