    You're overthinking this. Go with the 8D.

    I don't actually know the official colour. I'd call it dark chocolate; it's certainly darker than Alden's tobacco colour. Yes, they are leather double-sole, with an added Topy.

    PSA - Leffot started their Odd Stock winter sale today and a handful of Aldens are, as usual, included in random sizes.

    My new longwings are a bit difficult to get on. Do you guys use a shoe horn (or whatever they call that thing) to get yours on? I worried over time the back of the heel will break down and start to roll over. I suspect they will loosen up with some wear, but don't want to damage anything before they do.

    If you do, suggestions on a good one to get?

    1) You should get a shoe horn. Shoe horns (along with shoe trees and other care products) are basically required when you start purchasing $700 shoes. Start with the cheap plastic ones, Alden and others sell them.

    2) Make sure you were fitted correctly

    Really like the color of this snuff; not too dark. Wish I would have snagged this boot a while ago. Bravo Saz!
