    Anyone ever have an issue where the stitching on this part of the shoe starts to come undone?

    It's pretty minor but just really annoying every time I look down and see it.


    I had that issue. Twice. They replaced the shoes one time, then my cobbler fixed it when it happened again and they paid for the repair. Annoying, but fairly minor.

    Nice. How is the fit? How does the sizing run too, compared to a chuck taylor?

    J.Crew was pretty easy going about returning them. I ended up doing that and then ordering their new cordovan captoe boot.

    Danke - I looked at the new items earlier, but didn't enter 'Alden', just looked under shoes and they didn't show up.

    Probably not a Barrie last - maybe a Grant?

    which one fits better with very slim jeans, alden indy or alden roy? im worrying abt indy to be too dressy and roy to be too chunky because of the round toe.

    The Roy boot is now on Trubalance last so it will fit the same as Indy.

    When I asked Context they said Alden recommended the change, and they went with it.

    9"

    Thanks. Hard to compare... I've never worn Chucks. I would say they fit 1/2 size large and 1/2 size wide. I think I'm best in a 9E and I got these in a 8.5D and they fit perfect.
