1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Hello. Sorry to bore you guys with a sizing question. I know most members recommend to size down half a size from Grant-last to Barrie-last. I have boots in the Grant last in US 8.5D which are are fine overall but a bit snug at the end of the day (pinky toe). Sizing down alf a size to Barrie (to US 8D), will I have more room at the toes then with Grant US 8.5 D, or will I loose the extra room of the Barrie-last by sizing down half a size?

    Thx!

    Mine is 8.5D on Grant and 8D on Barrie. Both are fit very fine to me and just a bit more room at the toe on Grant (8.5d) since it's a bit longer compares to Barrie (8d).

    But if you are snug on 8.5D Grant, you may go with 8.5D on Barrie.

    Zippy, you are killing it in your Leffot LWBs.
    Congrats on finding the right fit! Now good luck getting every shoe in your C width. :)
    Looking good and rain compliant. Good stuff!
    Yeah, I track far too much via a spreadsheet. I will take a snippet of it when I get home from breakfast.
    The UPS store can't open early enough for me! I am very excited to get mine!
    That's a great stick photo! It is very well framed!
    Looking great in the King of Aldens! -Mike

    Thanks!

    Yeah, that's not going to happen. If I can order new Barrie shoes in 8C, I will, but I'll probably just stick with thicker socks and maybe a little heel grip or something for my 8D Barrie shoes. I think it's exacerbated by the extremely stiff double leather soles that Alden uses. My 8D Barrie suede shoes fit better (although they have flex-welt soles and are suede so they're more tightly lasted). Fortunately, the D-width in the TTS lasts like Aberdeen and Plaza is quite good for me in the heel.

    New pickup for you Mike? Stunning shoe, I just didn't realize you were one of the lucky few. Very nicely done.

    I'm with you Ttown. When Alden is on their game, for my money, there's none better.

    You know Alden shoes are so hard to find specially non color 8 shell I tried and its either sold out or get on some waiting list. It's crazy how fast they sell out.
