    Ordered a pair of 8.5D Alden 684s (full strap loafer) and they were shipped this morning.

    Hey gents,

    Before I'll pull the trigger on captoe boots in Grant last, commando sole or not?

    I'm also 8.5US in Barrie last, I guess I'll go with size 9US for Grant, correct? (I'm measured 9US on Brennock)


    thanks

    Grant runs pretty true to size so 9 should be good for you. I recommend the commando sole if you live in a rainy area. I have captoe boots in the commando that are perfect for me in the NW.

    thanks! I was worried that commando sole would not look sleek.

    are these the Cigar captoes from Alden DC? From all the pics that have been posted here, they still look pretty sleek...the commando sole isn't very clunky on these.

    Here are my captoes with the commando sole. They look quite sleek to me.

    They're just the flat waxed laces that came with the boots.
