    Lindricks finally arrived. I was able to get in on that shady 50% off code from last week.
    They feel the same on my foot as the Darltons and another pair of 325 last boots I've got.

    Looking good, but I still prefer Tricker's Stow 4497s last; its much better balanced.

    Pretty nice Zippy - post them on the non-Alden shell thread, you don't you?

    Ok - I'm planning to get the Lindrick as well, so dumb question - these are Shell, right?

    And how do they fit, TTS?

    Yep, Lindricks are shell.
    They run a little big. I sized down. YMMV

    Actually it doesn't say they're cordovan on the RL site.
    The Luis Viawhatever site says "100% Horse" though.

    Half a size. I can easily imagine others might not size down though.

    Oh crap, now I'm even more confused.

    Never mind, thanks for your help, though.

    I have the Marlow, Darlton and Gifford - all size 10.5 and I find each of them fits TTS.

    I've posted this before, but C&J told me that the 325 lasted shoes for RL are listed with US size .5 above their UK size. Most of my regular fitting shoes (ie not Barrie lasted Aldens) are a size 7.5 (same as my Brannock measurement), and I comfortably fit a 7 in the Darlton.

    My experience suggests that the Darltons fit a half size larger than their listed US size, and fit TTS in their actual UK size. They are somewhat narrow though so I can see why someone with a wide/average foot would be more comfortable not sizing down.

    Are they any new codes to get them a little cheaper? Beautiful but would be even better at 1/2 the price
