    Stevent, NOS is highly subjective, especially shell. Generally a 'good price' might be ... less than $300...?

    Notice there are zero shell styles on the J. Gilbert list, not even black or #8. And what is Regina Grain calf? Anyone got any pics of that? I'd be interested to see how the hunting green suede turns out as well.

    could anyone tell me how number 1 last (allen edmonds leeds) compares to the barrie last (alden all weather walker)?

    i'm a 9E in the former and want to figure out the right sizing for the latter.

    I wear the same size in the 1 last as I do in Barrie. 8D in both.

    The 1 last feels a bit snugger than the Barrie, but it still works for me in the same size. I assumed I'd be an 8.5 (my TTS) in the 1 last, but when I went and tried it on the 8 was perfect. Glad I tried it on before I placed a couple orders. Could have been an expensive, non-returnable mistake!

    snug on the width, or the length?

    Well the ball of my foot ends up at the widest part of the shoe on both lasts. So I would say a bit snugger on the width on the 1 last. My foot felt a bit more cozy in the 1 than the barrie. Still comfortable and not tight at all.

    In many ways I wish these were my first Alden shoes. I like how you show how they can be worn casually
