    How do they run size-wise?

    My Redwing GTs are size 8.5 and most of the other shoes I own are size 9.

    Can anyone comment on how the leather sole holds up with regular everyday use on concrete and pavement?

    They don't hold up well at all. Resoling is easy though.

    These are sweeeeet. Can we order them in this colour?

    I may be copying you very shortyly. Just gotta decide if I want the 3 eye or 2 eye. The 2 eye seems a little more versatile imo.



    Its from that link above.

    These look pretty slick too

So should i size down 1 or 2 or go with a 10.5? http://thumbnail.image.rakuten.co.jp...00x400&s=0&r=1

    I wear size 9 for dress shoes and I ordered 9 for my Arrows (not made yet). It says to order your dress shoe size on their website. Do Alden's fit 1/2 size large or something?

    Arrow.

    To be honest I'm kind of surprised by the quality. I knew people liked them, but I thought for the price there was now way they could be that nice. They are. Leather is way thick. Stitching looks perfect and very strong. Can't wait to put a little wear on them.

    As far as sizing goes I went with my van's authentic sizing and they feel great. A little bit snug, but according to the website that's good since they'll stretch a little.

    These look really amazing, but I gotta say, not being able to get it resoled with the crepe bottoms is a major turnoff. That contrasts with Quoddy big time, as their crepe soles are sown on to the bottoms in a way that allows for future resoling. Crepe can wear out pretty quickly depending on thickness and the environment your walking in, so this may or may not be a big issue for some.

    That's a pretty big turnoff for me too. It's pretty much the reason I haven't pulled the trigger on a pair yet. I like the idea of the leather wrap, but I don't think that is very functional. It will end up probably having to be resoled every couple months if wear them out a lot.

    I love these so much:

    I would have bought them by now if they could be resoled with the crepe, but they can't I don't think. Has anyone confirmed this with Arrow? I'm just going by what I've read here on the forum.

    Anyone know who else makes a style like this that can be resoled? I don't know if Quoddy really has anything too close to that kind of plain moccasin.

    On another note. While browsing rakuten, I spied these Arrows with a regular rubber shoe sole which I think are pretty cool. Check them out here:

    yeah i just got my first pair of quoddys and love them. but i heard good things about arrow mocs in particular but no one really said why they prefer arrows over quoddys.

    i do understand why quoddys are more preferred from the whole resoling issue.

    so for everyone who loves arrows, do you guys just keep rebuying these shoes?

    My Arrows came in today (it took 8 weeks). As soon as I put them on, I wanted to order another pair. The leather is wonderful. My only complaint is that the tongues are pretty short (the height of my foot may have something to do with this). [​IMG] [​IMG]
