    nephew,
    the Aberdeen last is Alden's most narrow last in the toe box. the Hampton last is slightly roomier in the toe box. if you wear a suit three to four times a week, you should consider the medallion cap toe which is one of alden's best models in either king or black. the cap toe 9015 can be worn with a casual attire whereas the medallion 2145 is dress shoe model

    This never happens to me. I don't bend my toes when I push the clutch or let it out. I use my ankle joint for the finer movements.


    With all this 9015 love. ..

    Congrats Shawnc. I have the same ones. (These are the shortwing bluchers-barrie, right?) I bought mine new from AoC for about $200 more. You got yourself a great pair of shoes for that price. Congrats my friend and wear in great health!

    [​IMG] It's funny you mention that. I drive a manual. Today I thought to myself as I was holding the clutch, I can feel my left shoe creasing! [​IMG]

    Thank you Uncle. I actually wore my 2145 today. Maybe I do not need another color 8 dress shoe.
