    Anyone want to get in on a Frans Boone order? The Aldens I want are less than 500 EUR and I don't want to pay an extra 50 EUR shipping. PM me.

    I wear the same size, 10 1/2 D in both. The unlined BB seems a bit roomier, and feels as if it stretches over time, although cordovan barely stretches. Good luck!

    -10 points for posting a pic of your Granny knots immediately after someone posts a vid of how to tie a proper knot :marchal:

    Which do you think would be more suitable/versatile for business attire (i.e. suits and business casual)... whiskey LWB or cigar LWB

    Very unfortunately, I've worn them at home on carpet for a bit and they are far too loose on my foot. I definitely need a 12D in the Hampton.

    As nice as they are, a nice balmoral of some sort in Cigar is what I'd really like. I think that Whiskey will be after Cigar.

    Forgive me for constantly posting pics of my whiskey lwb's, they're my only pair :embar:

    Birthday's at the end of the month so hopefully I'll have a new pair to contribute :slayer:

    This is from our first snow back mid-Jan after dinner. No welts or water stains for my pair

    So today I realized commando sole makes the cap toe boot too clunky to wear with skinny jeans, leather sole it is. Now I just gotta find some store with a cap toe #8 in size 8 in stock.

    Has anyone experienced uneven insoles/footbeds? I don't think I've seen this discussed.

    I didn't notice that the left shoe of my 403s had a small bump near the ball of my foot when first trying them. After some moderate walking at my office job, I began to notice it with every step. Alden acknowledged the defect and replaced the shoes for me; the new pair was nice and flat.

    I recently tried on another pair of Aldens with a similar issue. I'm afraid of running into this problem on one of my pre-ordered shoes as those would essentially be non-replaceable until another production run. I wonder if a cobbler could apply heat and successfully flatten any abnormalities. Thoughts/experiences? TIA.

    Well my boot has the uneven outsole issue. Although it is very slightly uneven, but I notice it with every step.
    I think I can't do anything about it and try my best to get used to it...
