    I've found the Copley to fit similar to the Leydon.

    I echo REguy, waban is good, but can be annoying (and he's cash only) and I've heard bad things about Felix (overpriced, not great work)
    A relatively new shop is Colonial Shoe repair downtown
    The owner is awesome. He went through the vibram catalog with me and told me the pros/cons based on what i needed resoled. Will def give him business in the future.

    Guys, can someone please confirm that the Alden for Brooks "Snap" last is in fact the Alden Grant last. I have seen posts that it may be the Hampton last but it looks Grant to me.

    I can find plenty of pics of new(ish) black Indys, but anyone have any of them worn in after a year or three? Would be interested in seeing them...

    Thanks.

    Happens for a few of my boots as well, think it's how your foot goes with boot? If it really bothers you, you can get the tongue stitched to the side of the shoe - search this thread as members have done it before or if you can see a C&J boot in person, a lot of them have this feature as well

    Finally! 9D fits great, and I'm an 8.5D in the Barrie last.

    It's funny because this only happens on my #8 captoe boots. The other Alden boots and other brands' boots do not do this. And it is also only my left side with slipping tongue. The right is fine.

    I generally have seen it most pronounced w/ my captoes (Plaza) and CXL Indys (Tru). Also Adidas Sambas.

    FWIW, tongue slipping meant the shoe was too wide for my foot.

    That would make sense, except the tongue that slips with my boots happens on the foot that is the largest.

    Happens to me too, regardless of how tight I tie the boots.
