I just received the Daltons and even at width E, they are still a little too tight.  I know that the leather should break in but it is very uncomfortable.  I'm more than likely going to return it, but it sucks cause the guy I talked to said that they are going to discontinue the Dainite sole for the Daltons.  They have another Dalton in the Bourbon color instead of the Walnut with a wider size, so I may have to go with that.

Having some messed up toes already, I feel like it'll be a bad choice to keep this size and mess up my feet even more.

Really disappointed :(

i feel like there is always this battle between AE and Alden shoes and for me, i have an interesting relationship with one of the companies. Most of my life (35 now) I have been an AE guy as i love the consistent fit, quality (i own many shell cordovans) and look. a few  years ago i started dating this girl who eventually became my wife. Low and behold her family is deeply rooted in the Alden shoe company.

naturally, i was super excited about this and i have since bought many shoes at cost prices. However, if i had to honestly choose between AE and Alden, i would go AE 99% of the time. Why? it really comes down to style and fit. Aldens in general are built for larger guys and at 5'7" their shoes dont really fit me. they are incredibly boxy and large and just dont fit my style. AE sizes fit me a whole lot better especially the boots. Alden boots not only look huge but their sizing is all over the place according to the models. Obviously quality is top notch at Alden but again the vast majority of Alden shoes run and look quite large.

just my 2 cents.

Alden has several lasts and not all are boxy. The Trubalance last is used on the Indy boots and the toe is obviously boxy and its wider. The Barrie last is he most common, but the Grant and Plaza lasts are not boxy at all and are true to brannock sizing whereas Barrie most go half size down and up to a full size down for Trubalance. I've never been a big AE guy. Most of the time I have a hard time during the break in period and prefer to just avoid it.

I ended up selling my Vibergs late last year, thankfully I still got @ 90% of what I had into them - so I was happy about that. Just never got broken in or comfortable enough.

Picked up a pair of Wolverine Chukkas earlier this year though, they are great. Very happy for the price.

That's amazing you got that much back on your Viberg's. Which last did you have? I know 2030 isn't for everyone with a narrower toe box.

To keep the conversation going...after 18 months of wearing my 3sixteen ST-100x five times a week, I've since semi-retired them added a pair of ST-130x and ST-44x to my rotation. Went ahead and got a Tanner Goods Standard Belt and Utility Billfold too. Also picked up two pair of Filling Pieces sneakers during their summer sale a couple weeks ago - Low Top Classic Black and Low Top Perforated White.

Digging them sneakers for sure. How did the 3sixteen's fade? I don't think they stretch as much as some other brands. I've been rotating between a pair of Rogue Territory x Blue Owl slub SKs and Pure Blue Japan xx-012. Love how the fades are coming in.

I just got a brown leather belt from Tanner on their second's sale. Need a new wallet tho. Check out Ewing Dry Goods and Vermilyea Pelle too. Really nice handmade stuff.

I have owned 4 pairs of Rancourts. Excellent stuff, the only thing I don't like is the wear rate on the single leather soles. Super comfortable, I'm wearing their Ranger Mocs today.

Offhand, is anyone interested in a used pair of  9D Oak Street black trenchboots? The Dainite has almost no wear on the sole. Talking, cheap cheap in relation to the retail price.

As I've stated before, I'm a creature of habit and stick with what works for me, whether it be blades, cars or shoes(AE for dress and Golf, Bass, Bean & CH for casual). My cowboy boots are Paul Bond customs.

That being said, I do have a few pair of the Doc Marten MIE shoes and while they are nice enough, I guess I never drank the kool-aid cuz while they were ok, the styling is a little different than my tastes runs.

So Maddie has a student who owns a big independent shoe store in town and I guess that they were talking after a lesson and she said that I've had a rough couple of weeks and she wanted to get me something and asked him as a guy, what would he suggest.

Well, obviously he thinks of shoes/boots, and as I buy all of my AE, CH and Docs(all 2 pair of em, lol) from him, he said that he had a "stash" of of limited edition, vintage and not your run of the mill shoes/boots and he had the perfect pair in mind.

So she drops in and he takes her back to his office and then opens a door in the back and it's like a huge walk-in and it's about three times deeper than hers at home, shoes floor to ceiling three sides around and 6 pair each on either side of door, again floor to ceiling. It had a ladder like the old style libraries that went to the top shelf and tracked around the closet on wheels.

So he goes in and pushes the ladder back and climbs up and took a pair of wing-tip Docs off of the top shelf(top pics below).

Turns out they're a MIE LE pair of Anthony's. Released a few years ago I guess. The blue pin dot material is silk from a 9th gen tie maker from outside London that Doc works with. At first I was like "WTF," lol, however once I put em on with black slacks or jeans, I like em. They're different and out of the ordinary, sorta like me, lmao.

She got the second pair cuz she thought they'd look good with boot jeans, which I wear alot, lol. They're nothing special I don't think though they too were in the closet/back room however I'm changing the laces to black cuz they look like a pair of friggin hockey skates minus the blades with white laces. The steel toe could come in handy at the bar, lol.

I looked at their online catalogue and they have some sweet a** boots that I was unaware of and I'm going to get the Anthonys in brown(non LE boots) with a brown silk and a few other pairs of their MIE boots.

Thanks Sweetie, you're the best :)

Lovingly to Madison, to the rest of ya, I send my Best, hahaha,

Allen Edmonds without a doubt. Like many have said the break in process can be a little hard depending on the materials. I have probably 8-10 pairs and majority of them have been recrafted.

The service is best around!

Been away from this awesome thread for awhile and had a couple updates on purchases.  First, I decided to give OSB Natural CXL a try--pretty impressed with the quality and the relative ease of breaking in.  Only tweak I'll eventually make is add a dainite sole down the road.  The construction is awesome and people notice them everywhere I go.  Can't wait for them to darken up a bit and build some character!  Black Friday purchase so the price was an easier pill to swallow.

And perhaps my favorite purchase last year: Truman CF Stead Waxy Mohawk in Snuff.  Love the flesh out look and I do not baby these things.  If you want some unique offerings and Viberg prices scare you...these guys in Colorado do it right.  Love the stitch down and their CS is top notch.  Will probably get something again from them in 2017.  I'm hoping they refresh some Horween waxed flesh offerings.

That's the exact pair I want!  The waxed flesh is supposed to age really well.  OSB has a similar offering but I'm hoping Truman has some new releases soon.  The new tempesti sample they posted the other day looks amazing...

I'm a Johnston and Murphy guy also.  They aren't outrageously priced, they look good, they're comfortable, and they hold up.  I bought a pair of Dockers oxfords for work and the heels wore out in less than a year.  That's the last pair of $60 dress shoes I ever own...

I hit up the thrift stores a few times a week and collect what ever is worth buying. I have a few pairs of Ecco for daily beatings. Some older Italian and American J&M's, a few pairs of AE, Cole Haan, Salvatore Ferragamo along with a few nice vintage pieces. Needless to say the wife hates when I walk in with a new pair :)
