    TTS in my experience. I have narrow feet (12B or 12C in Barrie/TB, 12.5C Leydon), but since KW only offers D widths, I went down 1/2 size and up one width from my Leydon size to 12D. I had to put in a felt tongue pad to get a better fit because of the D width but now they're perfect. I don't want to post any non-Alden got pics here but I re-posted one of my older pics in the Kent Wang thread if you want to see what they look like IRL.

    /end derailment, back to Alden!

    Uncle Mac - those Whiskey NSTs look like your feet don't even touch the ground when you walk.

    Gents - gotta part with my ravello WTBs and Cigar LWB if anyone is looking...

    Many Thanks to everyone who has contributed to this thread over the years. This thread truly has been and continues to be a valuable source of information for not only Alden's but all well made men's footwear. In return some photo contributions.

    Besides using an Alden shoe chart to measure up for a pair of Allen Edmonds, those damned things look as if a baby elephant took a stroll in them.

    What he said.
    Also, park aves tend to run narrow.
    I've never had the opening of shoes blow out like that, so can only guess you sized way too small...

    907. Such a nice shine, but, make sure you fit these in person, don't want these to fit to snug. I have a pair and felt great in the store but later wished I went up a half size. The cap toe pattern in cordovan has a pretty strong break behind the cap toe so you need a little room in there to avoid any pinching. One of my favorites though.
