My man, he said he was an 11 in everything, wished he got an 11 in Alden, and the 11 in Wythe fit him perfectly. WHAT MORE COULD YOU WANT?Great thank you Gus. Your suede boots look terrific and they are certainly in their natural element right there.
The Alden loafers you got are the LHS on the Van last or are they another one of the Alden loafers?
The boot jack is an excellent suggestion too! Thanks.
I obviously don’t know about these particular boots but I’ve found cowboy boots work down to just around 8” leg opening. Maybe a hair less.The shafts are usually pretty pliable leather.How roomy is the shaft? Wonder what kinds of hems/taper they would accommodate.
I know you know this, but Aldens are built on different lasts, which have their own sizing requirements. Seems fine and normal to get as much sizing info as you can online before making a purchase, which can otherwise affect returns?My man, he said he was an 11 in everything, wished he got an 11 in Alden, and the 11 in Wythe fit him perfectly.

how "non slim" is your jeans, wonder if I can wear RRL Low straight with these (pretty *edit sure RRL slim for example won't work)I wear a US11 in most dress shoes although an occasional 10.5 if it is an extra roomy last. I bought a pair of Alden loafers earlier this Spring and took a 10.5 at the suggestion of the shop owner and I regretted not getting the 11. I took the Wythe suede boot in an 11 and was glad I did. It is an easy fit which allows me to take it off and put it on without a major struggle. It is a very nice boot with classic good looks and construction. I am tempted to order the one in black as well.
Here is the suede version in action near my home:
