    Thanks. Somehow the fit is spot on for both. That's why I'm having such a hard time deciding. It's not like I need shell. I have other shell shoes. It's more, which of these do I want as my black PTB?

    Find the one that has more appealing last shape to you, on that basis it's definitely NOT Alden for me

    No real help here, but I don't think I would ever be in the market for a black PTB as I think a captoe would be more suited for most jobs.

    Between the two really a toss up, but I prefer shell, but prefer how the C&J is sleeker. Pricewise though, I think RL Marlows are overpriced if there is a C&J equivalent so that would factor into my decision too.
