Rated 5 out of 5 by Worth the Long Wait I ordered a pair of these shoes in Burgundy at the beginning of July 2010. They were immediately placed on backorder, and the delivery date was pushed out numerous times. I ended up waiting four months for these shoes, which is a staggering length of time for a non-custom product. I waited impatiently, and with trepidation, as I read several internet blogs bemoaning a drop in quality of the Alden-made shoes. At various points I considered canceling my order to seek an alternative. I am glad I waited. The shoes finally arrived last week, and they are absolutely gorgeous. I can find no significant flaws anywhere - the leather is wonderful, the seams are all straight, and there isn't so much as a misplaced stitch. On top of that, the fit is as close to perfect as an off-the-shelf pair of shoes can be, and they were comfortable right out of the box. This is my second pair of Brooks Brothers Shell Cordovan shoes, and I'm just as happy with this pair as I was with the first. I would buy them again without a second thought. As long as Brooks Brothers keeps offering quality items like these shoes, I'll keep coming back for more. November 16, 2010
Rated 4 out of 5 by Looks great, fit poor First, the shoes look stunning. Even with non-custom size, it took over a year to find them. I usually wear 8.5 E. Since they run a little longer, the BB rep asked me to order 8E. Inspite ordering Wide, the shoes felt extremely narrow between little toe & big toe mound "on my feet". Whereas, they were loose near the heal & my feet constantly kept coming out when I wore them. Though, I ordered half size smaller, there's still some space above my toes. To soften the leather, I wore them a couple of times in my house. So far, I've wore them 3-4 times. Every time I wore them my entire leg, from muscles to bones, my soles, sheen, calf & thighs hurt like crazy for a day or two. After first time wearing it outside, the sole appeared as if I've been wearing them for years. The upper leather scratches very easily, leaving a permanent mark. Would recommend replacing the sole with rubberized one for year around usability & availability in wider sizes. February 1, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Better than I expected I thought these were going to be good, but they are even nicer than I expected. #8 color is very dark. Red-black, but it will get lighter with age. The fit on these shoes is perfect for me. I selected true to size (I normally wear 8.5, and I purchased 8.5). Apparently these are using the Alden Plaza Last which is true to size. August 12, 2010
Rated 5 out of 5 by Dynamite These shoes are excellent. They are made by Alden and come on the plaza last, which I think is very nice in general and looks great for these wingtips. December 2, 2010
Rated 5 out of 5 by Wonderful pair of shoes. These cordovan wingtips look great and are very comfortable. After trying many other premium shoe brands, this Alden for Brooks Brothers provides the best fit and value. The stitching and detail are well done and the quality of the leather is outstanding, I don't care much for the metal eyelets, but the rest of the shoe brings a good balance to the overall look. As long as Brooks Brothers continues to offer quality shoes like these, I will keep buying more. Fits true to size. No dissapointments! May 25, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by My Favorite Shoes I'd been told that I needed a pair of cordovan wingtips if I was going to dress like a "real" attorney. I had decided on some Aldens, but I didn't like the shape of the shoe -- a bit too "old man" for me. When I heard that Brooks Brothers had a cordovan wingtip by Alden made on their Plaza last (a bit narrower shape), I went into the Madison Ave store to check them out. They're gorgeous, and the quality is evident just from looking at them and holding them. They did take a few weeks to break in (my toes hurt for a while before that), but now they're comfortable. Can't wait for the patina to start forming. I also confirmed that if the shoes ever need repair, they will be repaired by Alden cobblers. January 10, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Simply the best wing-tips These shoes are classic, fit perfectly, buff to a high-gloss and always look great. You cannot go wrong with Brooks quality in footwear.. These are a staple of my work wardrobe. October 4, 2009
Rated 5 out of 5 by Alden Shoes Are Among the Best in the World Alden are THE master craftsmen when it comes to Cordovan shoes. The durability, fit, and comfort are exceptional. June 2, 2010

Answer: 
In discussing the matter with Alden, I understand the 037H is made on the M-75 last, which is similar to the Plaza last. It should run true to size.

Answer: 
Both shoes are made by Alden. 037H is made on the Plaza last. I am sure, since I own a pair. Not sure what abou the other. Could be the Barrie last. The differnet lasts do fit differently; in general Barrie lasted shoes run half a size big.

Answer: 
The 02AH Black Fleece shoe is a Longwing Blucher/Derby design with a storm welt and a double sole. 037H is a "short" wing Balmoral/Oxford design with a single sole. Under traditional style rules, the 02AH would be considered a less formal shoe, suitable for wear with more casual clothes; whereas the 073H shoe is a more formal shoe.

Do you guys plan to ever replenish these shoes or will they remain perpetually understocked?
