    Those have been my Grail LHS for sometime. Maybe even my Grail Aldens. I already have the Black, Cigar and King LHS, but I require a C width.

    Congrats!

    And Enjoy!

    That has not been confirmed yet right? I know they have put in for it but I don't think they have taken orders yet

    I just recently got some black shell captoes from AoC, the AF60 model. They are on the Barrie, fit my feet really well.

    Another question for the community. As more and more sellers are moving Alden's on ebay, I'm finding more who don't have even the most basic understanding of the shoe. And I say this with full knowledge of how little I know when compared to most in this community. But the last two pair I have inquired about the seller had no knowledge of what a last is. Not what last their shoes were made on, but no knowledge of what a last is.

    So what I do is get the numbers from the inside of the shoe and email Alden. My question to the community is whether there is a reference bank or website where I can load this information and find out for myself. I thought that I read that AE had this material available and I was wondering if Alden had similar information available.

    As always, thanks in advance for any help.

    A question for Unlined shell PTB owners , how do they feel compared to your other Barrie shoes, snugger, looser?.

    Thanks,

    Shawnc - great question. I look forward to reading the responses.

    In lieu of having specifics like the last etc, I always request the internal and external measurements of the shoe - and compare it against the length of my foot and internal length of a good-fitting (similar style) shoe.
