    I thought there shouldn't be any difference if both the shoe and boot are of cordovan leather and on the same Barrie last. I am only worried about the boot being tight compred to the shoe, not the other way around.

    I can understand if CXL leather boot is slightly snug compared to the cordovan leather shoe on the Barrie last. Unfortunately no one carries boots in the C width. It will have to be MTO for both the cordovan and CXL Barrie last boots.

    Pepper. It is in my experience, but others no doubt have greater depth of knowledge.

    If those were boots I would have had a real problem not buying.

    Lol it's true, 1 Alden box per boot would work nicely!

    That wallet is epic.
    The Plaza Last is indeed superb! Both your new Aldens look great!
    This was the quote of the day and DV posted Color 4 boots.
    Congrats! Enjoy your new Cigar NSTs!
    Yeah, those boots would do. But dang those boxes are hilarious. I do not understand the Alden boxes, drives me crazy as well.
    The Plaza makes everything better! Looking good Don!
    Looking superb DV!!!
    Enjoy your LWBs! Looking good! -Mike

    Hi everyone, longtime lurker here. I was hoping someone could let me know whether there are any differences between the standard Alden 975 and the J.Crew version. Thanks!

    @peppercorn78 I agree with Rstldr and IME the TB is just slightly wider than the Barrie.

    Dont know about others, but I do find the trublance wider at the ball, but the barrie toe cap/puff feels higher to me than trubalance. I take the same size in both.

    Should be the same thing, just disregard the description on J Crew's website stating they are Horween Chromexcel shell cordovan....
