    10.5D, just hope it's not too narrow, they are unlined though so should stretch

    I think you and I take the same size.
    I'm guessing that 10.5D leydon is going to be too small.

    Yeah we do, and just placed the initial bid, and one for $10 more when I saw I was still winning, didn't actually expect to win them :embar:

    i checked those out. the context roy is on the trubalance, and i am ok with that*. i was looking for a boot that falls more on the casual side and was afraid that the leffot boot looked a little too refined. the j. crew snuff was an option but barrie + crepe turned me off.

    *the indy boots i had in the past killed my feet so i sold them, and i avoided the trubalance since then. however, last time i was in J Gilbert i tried on the reverse-chamois indy and it was super comfortable. giving it a shot on these roy boots.

    Hey Shawnc - I was one of the folks asking about the Alt Wein recently. And my interest was absolutely spurred by seeing that shoe on this site. If it wasn't sold out, I'd order one right now.:slayer:

    Can someone explain what is being depicted in this picture taken from the Alden factory?

    [​IMG]

    To me, it suggests that the original insoles are removed as part of the restoration. Is that correct? Perhaps it is then re-installed as a benefit to the original owner who would then not have to repeat the break in process?

    If I were to consider purchasing pre-owned quality footwear, I would want fresh, flat leather insoles installed as part of the restoration.

    I want to like it, but it's not something I would buy based on that single photo. It may take some getting used to, for me anyway. Unlike J Crew's snuff suede-color 8 saddle shoe, which I picked up when it was first offered. I saw that shoe on their site, and five minutes later I'd purchased it.
