    Hi All - I am in the market for LWBs in burgundy and have identified the following suspects: Alden #975, AE Macneil & Meermin. I don't have any Alden locations nearby to try those on (ditto for Meermin) and the AE's didn't work as they were a very sloppy fit in the heel.

    My budget is $650, what other options are out there?

    Thanks for your help.

    It would be helpful if we knew your location...

    Seattle area, but I travel to the LA and Bay areas occasionally. I am not opposed to ordering online without trying on first and am curious what other shoes are out there that fit in the LWB category in burgundy.

    I've never bought from them, but I've heard good things about the Shoe Mart's customer service as an Alden dealer. I think they do free shipping & returns, so you could try shoes w/o obligation.
