    It could be an issue if you walk around and your feet swell a bit.

    I've had this happen to me when on a business trip and I had to walk several blocks to another location in the Summer. After the walk, my shoes felt like they fit too small. When I got back to the hotel room, I had blisters.

    Now with my Aldens, sized correctly per Alden's guidelines, I never have that problem and they feel like they are good for my feet all the time basically.

    Is there a place to purchase the wingtip boot in color 8 with a rubber sole in a size 11.5 D? I only see up to 11 D on Alden of Carmel.

    I don't have any C&J, but I think the Carmina color is very similar to the C&Js from what I've been told.


    I LOVE these.

    That was exactly what I was thinking -
    however, looking at that sole, I could see these being wildly comfortable -
    I jumped on the preorder, but now I'm having second thoughts - really torn -
    I think I'll wait until they actually arrive, let me see them in person and give them a chance

    I have no clue if this is against the rules or not, but check my signature for a pair of ravello PTBs and a pair of tan suede PTBs on sale in B&S.

    Great for guys in L.A. who wear boots and 21oz denim in July, and for whom Danner boots are too plebe.

    A good choice. Additionally, LS recently had a black and #8 shell Hampton last makeup -- PTB with a medallion, I believe.
