J.FitzPatrick Footwear - JF Line
Alder - Black Calf
Chelsea boots are a universal favorite, from board room to concert stage and everywhere in between. Simple detailing and supreme convenience make the chelsea an enduring style; add beautiful materials and Goodyear-welted construction to the mix, and the result is a pair of J.FitzPatrick "Alder" chelseas.
**Please note, this last plus Chelsea pattern creates a very generous mid-to-forefoot region. We recommend sizing down 1/2 size from your typical JF size***
Sitting on our rubber Street Walker Sole, our Alders are boots that are both as tough and elegant as you are. This pair in Black Calf is the classic chelsea, for that iconic look perfectly pairable with denim or fine trousers.

J.FitzPatrick shoes have a broad set of fit options, from true to size, on the slim side to more wide. It will be important to make sure you read about the specific last that you are looking to purchase.
One thing to note across the board is that our loafers have been cut on the snug side, compared to the rest of the models. We did this so that you do not need to 'size down' when going for a loafer, rather recommending you stick to your oxford size (**read exception below)
Here are a few general rules
- Our insteps would be considered generous
- All shoes with 6 eyelets will be even more generous in the instep
- Any model in full suede will feel more generous to its leather counterpart
- The boots have a forgiving instep in order for you to put them on easily
- Any monkstrap made on the MGF or LPB will feel more generous to its oxford counterpart
- If you wear your oxfords very snug, then size up for your loafers. However, for most we recommend taking the same size as your oxfords

Leather quality is high.the boot shape looks great. I was advised to go half size smaller and they fit great which is surprising because most chelsea boots don't fit my feets quite right no matter what size I get. I hope we get more color options down the line because I would love a wine like color or in suede on the Saint Helens last
Seemingly high quality leather so far. No flaws in the stitching.
Shipped in timely manner and with a free pair of shoe trees.
Another unexpected addition that I greatly appreciated, but can admit that a person other than myself might not, is that they came with pitched heels.
Will definitely keep an eye on this brand for future styles and will recommend to others with the caveat that they may want to specify pitching or no pitching in their orders.
Thank you for the kind review. While we are appreciative of the fact that you noticed the pitched heels and enjoy them, that was actually not intended. It was a mistake as the JF line does not come with them. The story is long why yours had them but was basically a mix up. Glad that you enjoyed them regardless and thank you for your support.
The Boots were easy to break in. The fit with the insoles that I use inside of my shoes is perfect. I can really say that you and your team have great customer service. I purchased two pairs of boots and you offered the third pair as a bundle so I was very fortunate. in addition to the purchase I ordered a pair of MTO of which you waived the MTO fee, I am grateful. I plan to purchase other shoes.
