    Crappy cell phone pic of my suede wing-tip boots on the Barrie last. Bought these probably four years ago (first pair of Aldens), but never really give them as much wearing time as they deserve.

    Some folks were discussing the old AE MTO option a few days ago. I happened onto what I think was a very recent Reddit thread where the AE CEO stated the MTO program would be back in 2016.

    To bring it back to Alden, I think we are about 4 or so weeks from the B&M reverse chamois wt boot. Also congrats to those who got in on the grant lasted color 8 cordovan wt boot w/ antique edge.

    They deserve more wearing! What shade of suede is that and is the sole double leather?

    That is an absurd wait. With that long of a wait, why not go with a different brand? With C&J, Carmina, and Enzo amongst others, it's not like there's a shortage of options.

    I prefer the dark edge trim on color 8 but like a little bit of diversity in my rotation.

    Here is my previous post yesterday regarding a question about Alden Indy sizing
    I went to a nearby store to try them on again. I only tried the 7.5D but not the 8D as they didn't have it in stock at the store I went to.

    The ball of my foot near my pinky toe is between the first and second eyelet. You can see my foot pushing out from there. The ball of my foot near my big toe is above where the quarter meets the toe box area. The foot feels tight across the vamp, but I can move and wiggle all my toes completely. You can also see the slight creases on the vamp. Those were caused by me. Compared to last time, I tightened the shoe laces tight.
    I'm wearing Darn Tough Full Cushion Boot Socks but I've also ordered their normal Cushion Socks. I have not tried their normal cushion socks with this size
    I would love to order from The Shoe Mart, but I am going to be doing a preorder for the Innsbruck Indy, so I won't be able to return them. Any thoughts on 7.5D and 8D? I am leaning toward the 8D. Thank you!


    I was curious, what are some signs of a shoe being too small? I apologize for these newbie questions, but I am new to quality shoes.
