THE OFFICIAL ALDEN THREAD FOR 2020 - SHARE REVIEWS, SIZING, ADVICE, AND PHOTOS.
Hi not sure if this is the right place to be asking for sizing advice.
I’m looking to purchase my first Alden (modified last, since I have wide forefoot, narrow heel asian foot shape). I have tiny feet but relatively wide forefoot (5.5ee on left foot and 6e on right) I was measured in the store in Japan.
Unfortunately all the shoes imported by the distributor in Japan are in D width and I was offered 6.5d in modified last. It feels a bit tight on the right side (no pain, slight pressure). I wear 7ee in new balance running shoes if it helps. (37 regular on the Birkenstock Arizona, but pinkie is a bit squeezed). Usually I size up to accommodate my wide forefoot (don’t like squeezed toes, I had bad corns on my pinkie toe that took a year to go away).
Do you recommend that I try to look for 6E or is the 6.5D a possible compromise? Would 6.5E be too big?
