@wurger , I know you have an extensive collection so I'd appreciate any advice. When breaking in your new pairs, did you feel some heel slippage? My foot won't come out of the shoe obviously, but I feel a bit of sliding in the heel area. I find AS makes a very good quality, rigid sole and I'm hoping that problem will go away once broken in.
@Afinepairofshoes I am ordering a pair in a 9, although I've never had to drop 2 full sizes in any shoe brand before.
