    In general, a shell cordovan model will fit a touch bigger due to the nature of the material. Traditional leather is a lot more elastic and will stretch over the last, and will shrink back down a bit when the last is removed. Shell doesn't really stretch, so it maintains the shape of the last better.

    also you can get your fix in other ways easier these days - I just bought a sweet #4 shell wallet. much cheaper (and attainable) than shoes and I get to use it and admire the color every day!

    @Deusis makes nice ones

    First new pair of Aldens in a couple years, and my very first pair of suede Aldens. I present to you my new Alden of SF snuff suede Indy:

    I'm also looking for recommendations on a waterproof/protectant spray? I know of Saphir Super Invulner, but I was wondering if there was anything more readily available (such as on Amazon).

    Dear Style Forum,

    I am looking to buy a pair of Alden LHS loafers but can't seem to find the right size. I typically wear 10.5D in Allen Edmonds dress shoes. I tried on the LHS loafers in a size 10D, and the width on the balls of my feet were perfect, but the heel was slightly too wide. What would be the proper size given that I have normal width on the balls of my feet and narrow heels? Would anyone recommend heel liners/pads? Would those work?

    Thanks!

    Enigma, yeah, the LHS can be a pain in the rear to size. May want to look for a 10C. DC, SF, Madison or ShoeMart should have them in stock.

    Just to confirm, the AOM Tankers have a storm-welt, while the Leffot Tankers are regular welt?

    AoM verision is a reverse welt, Leffot is a flat welt.
