    Originally posted this in the ask a question get an answer thread.

    I'm interested in buying a pair of Alden Indy, but am unsure what size I should get.
    I've read to many size posts on the forum, most of it conflicting.

    For reference I wear:
    Varvatos Chucks - size 8.5
    Five Ten Basic - size 9
    Varvatos loafers - size 9D

    According to Alden the Trubalance last run a half size larger than marked.

    Would this make my ideal Indy size a 8.5?

    Thanks in advance.

    Is Alden currently producing saddle shoes or bucks?
    I know they're available in Japan, but any American stores carry them?

    There are not any in their stock catalog, but some of the stores order custom models. I would check with the Alden stores in either San Francisco, NYC, or DC to see if they will have any in this next year, and maybe Tom (Leather Soul). He was selling some very nice ones on the plaza last that I should have ordered earlier.

    Tom, any plans for a reorder for these or something similar?

    Those ones have a leather sole. I have seen some Alden's with the red brick sole though. Not my thing but very cool.

    Are the more tapered lasts like the Leydon and Plaza meant to have a longer insole compared your a shoe in your size that isn't tapered? I was sized as a 10.5 Leydon but the insole of the shoe is a longer than the insoles of my other shoes. I theory it makes sense since your toes are not meant to go all the way to the edge. Can anyone speak to this?

    Kiya,
    I'm working over at Unionmade in SF. we are getting Alden saddles in a couple months. I believe the main body is white nubuck with navy calf saddles and a brick sole. they're going to be sweet.

    we have some other special Aldens in the works so I will keep y'all posted!
