    Thanks! This is good to know. Although my Aldens are 8 medium, my Brannock is 8.5 D. So I think I'll go with the medium.

    Black Friday. BB unlined shells. I recently ordered this same model in a lined version for winter and a more substantial sole.

    So I Just got back from a month long honeymoon on Maui. I hadn't worn anything but slippah's (flip flops) in 5 weeks. I came home and tried on My TSM color 8 Indys that have been waiting here for a month. They are Perfect and now i understand why people don't want to take their shell on the maiden voyage. I understand and apologize for
    Ever questioning anyone!

    How did you find the sizing and fit on the BB unlined? Did you go with your normal VAN size?

    ^ yep, I go with my normal Van last size. They fit slightly tighter than the lined version but the beautiful accommodating shell moves around and conforms to your feet. And Wha La, custom fitting loafers. BTW I wear most of my loafers with loafer socks as I live in the Sonora Desert.

    Let's see those Mike! I reach for black shells more and more often these days. They seem fresh and new to me after all the 8's and rare shells. Great to see all the photo's, keep em coming boys.

    After looking at so many color #8 pics, I was shocked how dark they were when I first unboxed them to try on. Only a harsh iphone flash pic revealed the color.

    Its part of the beauty of #8. It goes from almost black to reddish eggplant in the direct light.

    My biggest complaint with #8 is that they are too dark sometimes - I know color and Alden fans are polar opposites - that being said wear them a ton and more red tones will appear- at least my pair has.
