Early Christmas present for me. Stopped by my local menswear / shoe store and they had some AEs marked 1/2 price. So I couldn't resist these Odenwalds. If you are wondering, the 9D fit best while 95% of my other AEs are 9.5D.
Sorry for the bad pic - it's a quick one at my desk. I will try to get a better photo tonight after some AE Leather Lotion.
That was my experience. I had Sheltons in the same size as 95% of my other AE shoes and they were very tight across the top of my foot towards the toes. It was so tight I ended up selling the shoes.The Carlyle feels exactly like the Shelton when I tried them on at my local store.Note: I have a relatively high instep and this likely contributed to the tightness.Chris
