    Alden lovers, hint hint

    Check out theshoemart website. They have everything listed this evening including all the seconds listings. Definitely a few gems for those with smaller and larger feet and odd sizes in general. I only wish the color #4 ptb with dover pattern was my size.....sigh! I can't find anything that works for me but i figured maybe someone can snag something cool.
    Don't wait by morning the website will be back to normal.

    I am going to place a call. Hey, I would not be concerned about the creasing, but -and I am not trying to rain on your parade because this is exactly how I felt over some whiskey long wings- the gap at the back in pic four looks like it might be a bit much. If they feel large they might be.

    Would you guys consider any of this creasing excessive? I am more concerned about the areas not the eyelets than I am towards the heel as the leather actually feels thin there in comparison to the other foot.

    Is there anything I can do to repair this scratch on my aldens (burgundy cordovan)? I cleaned it with Renovateur and it didn't help much.

    Thanks Alcibiades.

    I think I owe either you or REguy a big thank you for sizing advice for the tremont last (size down .5 like the barrie). I can't remember who urged me to do so, but it was one of you guys. I know there are mixed reviews about this sizing, but TTS wouldn't even be close to working for me. Much thanks to either or both of you! [​IMG]

    But remember, shoes fit each of us differently. A large gap at the back, often, speaks to poor fit. Uncle Mac's advice on wearing on carpet, and really sessing fit, is way smart. Personally, I learned the hard way.
