    quick question: which alden leather (non-cordovan) boots can be worn casually with straight-cut jeans but can also be worn in a business casual law firm environment with wool slacks and a dress shirt (and possibly sport jacket)? i already have a pair of #8 cordovan wingtip boots in the barrie last, so i wanted something in a brown or dark brown.

    thanks!!!!

    Great boot selection. What size are you in the Dalton's compared to the Barrie or Trubalance lasts?

    A couple of things: 1) The Alden LHS appears to have heel slip at first - once they get broken in that goes away. 2) If you have any height to your instep stay away from it. As the others have said, it is a tought fit mean for a low instep. Believe it or not, Alden makes a high instep version of the LHS for the Japanese market- you cannot get it in the U.S. I would never buy a shell shoe wiht the idea that it will stretch to fit your needs. That is just going to end up a bad and painful experience.

    PS. I just sold a pair of Alden shell LHS becuase I got sick of fighting the high instep battle.

    what did you order and what was the price of footwear? how much was shipping? what was the $40 charge for? was it tax or duty or customs, or something else?
