    Have two pair of Alden cape cod penny mocs on ebay, question asked about whether they run true to size and what last. If they were Allen Edmonds I'd be able to answer, any Alden aficionados here that could help?

    Yeah, Loake would have been my first call, too.

    Yes Capnwes answer me and im very grateful for his opinion and reply. It was very kind.
    I just can´t see the purpose of ofending persons here without any reason.
    I just would like to have a second opinion,just that. Im sure is not a crime or offensive for anyone here.
    This doesn´t means that im not happy and grateful to Capnwes advice and opinions. Obviously.
    Regards

    Hello again. Nice to see you again.

    Those are Loake, One of the premier shoe makers of Northampton County. You will likely not find them on the Loake website since they appear to have been made for Jubilee Shoes. A typical Loake shoe of similar style would retail for a few hundred dollars. If you plan to sell them on ebay, you could expect at least $30. Heck, I will give you $30 just to get them away from you, obviously they are driving you insane.
