Appreciate the responses. I'm close to you chrispy, 7.5D Barrie, 8D 1000 mile, but the AE 5 is a bit too short/narrow for me so I wear an 8.5D (an 8E was way too big in the heel). My sneaker sizes are all over the place, and many just don't fit comfortably. How's the 8D AE for you? I may just go for it and order an 8, the WvG shoes look incredible.
