Good Day

I have been loitering for a while and decided to take the plunge.

Would anyone know any 'reasonably priced' places to buy Aldens, AE's shoes in Sydney?

I have bought Church's on line so English sizing is no problem, its US sizing which I just can't work out.

Henry Bucks do offer English shoes but the mark up is absurd so its cheaper to buy them on line but US sizing appears to be a mystery to me. thanks

Neither are available here I'm afraid, and if they were they would be very expensive.

The interwebz is your friend here.

Joseph's carry Loake and Church's, but at ridiculously high prices.

Judging by the whingeing on AAAC US sizing is a mystery to Americans too.

I don't think that Alden have ever been sold here in Australia.

Allen-Edmonds used to be carried by Peter Shepperd, but they gave them away a couple of years ago. Fortunately, I was able to try on some AEs before they stopped carrying them, so I was able to find out that many of their lasts are very "flat" and that they therefore don't my fit my feet, which have quite a high instep.

With regard to English shoes, as has been said above, ordering from Herring Shoes, Pediwear, P.Lal or others is your best bet.

Geoffrey, what shoe size re you in other shoes?
Churchs or any other
