    You should go back a few pages. There was a rant - I mean, a calm discussion - about how badly the aberdeen last fits.

    It's not that it's a bad last, but there are very few people who can make it work for their feet. I think most people forget that the different lasts exist not only to offer different shapes for aesthetic purposes, but also to offer different fit choices for people who have unusual or problem feet. This is why most of my shoes are barrie, trubalance, or plaza (still really want to try Modified because I have a feeling tht last would be perfect for my feet). Those three fit me the best without having to jump around width sizes, which is something I would rather not do.

    Random question: My indy boots cause me to have quite a bit of discomfort in my achilles if I walk in them for a few hours. Anybody else experience this with Alden boots?

    Hey guys does anyone have experiance with the Allen Edmonds 511 Last? I'm interested in the Cordovan Leeds but I only know Alden's last.

    I'm an 11.5D on the barrie...what would i be on the 511? a 12d? 12E?

    Thanks in advance!

    Sounds like you might need a different size.

    I just got a call from shoemart last week to let me know they had restocked the cigar LHS. I don't remember exactly when I visited their store but it was sometime during the winter when I asked them to contact me when my size came back in stock. So it can take a while, but they certainly do follow up.

    +1. Or if they are still very new, that can also be the explanation. Out of the 10 pairs of Aldens I own, only a couple were comfy right away. Most required several wears.
