    I'm on the wait list for the #8 PCT boots at J.Crew and was waiting on a 11/14 ship date. Was informed this morning that it is now delayed with a ship date of 2/25/13. Disappointed as I was hoping to be wearing them in a week.

    I'd consider dropping out but it's a nice boot at a decent price and I have a 10% discount on them so I'm going to hang in there.

    I had a dream (nightmare?) last night where I was caught in the rain wearing a pair of non-Alden Defendered Alden shells on their maiden voyage, and severe welting immediately ensued.

    This is a gorgeous shade of Cigar. Love the lighter undertones.

    I bought some park avenues today and have an issue: My left foot is a little wider than my right foot. The right shoe fits perfectly, but the left shoe feels a little tight on the outer-left side. I'm not sure if I should just live with it or if there's another solution.

    Any thoughts?

    ^ Seems like a great question for the AE forum. I think we all have this problem to some degree, as no two feet are the same, including your own two feet. I buy shoes for my larger foot, and the smaller foot thus gets a little more room. Sounds like you did just the opposite, so you may either need to wear them a bit until the leather stretches, and if it doesn't, look into having them stretched. Or you can return them and get a size wider if it isn't too late. The last on which Park Aves are made is the longest/narrowest made by AE.
