    It sounds like the boots I ordered will be too small. I really hope that isn't the case.

    I don't believe you have anything to worry about. I have this hole on my Alden boots. I believe it is part of Alden's manufacturing process. I forgot the complete explanation for it, but I believe this is where the uppers are joined when they make the boot.

    My experiences exactly. I only wear my eyelet wingtip boots generally on the weekends when I’m not as pressed for time. I too have to unlace the top 2-4 eyelets to put on my boots. For during the work week, my Plaza Indys with speed hooks are very convenient.

    Turns out my sizing experiment is still onging... So, nice pair of #8 LWBs in my sig. Would be very interested to trade for a LWB in 10D if someone has a good condition pair. Shoot me a PM.

    Also, some great boot pics these last pages! Thanks!

    Hey guys, thanks for the advice. I was thinking that maybe I accidentally jabbed it with a knife or something earlier on in the day. :)

    Is it more common to size down in the grant to the same as barrie or stay the same as plaza? I wear a 9.5 barrie and 10 plaza.
