Allen Edmonds Appreciation Thread - reviews, pictures, sizing, etc... - Page 736post #11026 of 7073710/12/12 at 9:46pmpost #11027 of 7073710/12/12 at 9:53pmSorry was trying to post my last reply on my iPad and did not do so well. Yes the bourbon strand is calf. So I guess I'm trying to decide on going that direction for new and diffrent color and save a few colors or just get the brown shell strandpost #11028 of 7073710/12/12 at 9:55pmQuote:
Get the brown shell Strands. It's one of the most attractive models AE makes, and it is shell.post #11029 of 7073710/12/12 at 10:01pmpost #11030 of 7073710/13/12 at 2:09amthinkin 'bout pulling the trigger on a pair of Bayfields. how does the sizing work in terms of the 8 last? 10D in the 8 last = 10D in Bayfield?
also: i've seen a lot of you guys say that the Bayfields run narrow. you guys know that CXL is well-known for stretching a lot, right?post #11031 of 7073710/13/12 at 2:32ampost #11032 of 7073710/13/12 at 8:01ampost #11033 of 7073710/13/12 at 8:09ampost #11034 of 7073710/13/12 at 8:11amQuote:Originally Posted by mexicutioner

I had the Bayfields in a D, needed an E. They did not stretch at all in the width.
On my Indy boots, the lacing has gotten a little bit closer, but that's it.post #11035 of 7073710/13/12 at 8:58amQuote:
Mario, I'm glad you threw this out there. I think all this talk and asking for advice about sizing and stretching in general is mostly nonsense and probably leading people in a bad direction.
People should get their feet properly measured and default to that shoe size, unless recommended specifically by the manufacturer (e.g..: this last always runs 1/2 small). If you have to mess around with the sizing, then the shoe is just not right for your foot. Sizing up or down in length or width just creates other problems. This is one of the reasons AE makes different lasts - to accommodate different foot types.
And if CXL stretched so much as to change the sizing, do you think reputable manufactures like AE would be using it, or at least not giving out advice?
Seriously, all these gyrations are way out of hand. They will only lead people to trouble.post #11036 of 7073710/13/12 at 9:11ampost #11037 of 7073710/13/12 at 9:16amChromexcel stretches a bit, not so much that it changes the size of the shoe much. But it does wrinkle and crease more than calf or shell cordovan, which can give the appearance of being "stretched out". It is clearly suited for more casual use.post #11038 of 7073710/13/12 at 9:32ampost #11039 of 7073710/13/12 at 9:56amQuote:
Always. On my boots I use combination trees because they happen to fit a little better. Depending on shoe size, tree size, shoe last, and tree design, your trees for normal shoes may or may not work for your Daltons; might have to size down on the trees.post #11040 of 7073710/13/12 at 10:16amJust curious for those who own suedes. Found some old stock AE suedes at the lock Rack, but they have a semi noticeable bald spot. It's small but the white bald spot kinda pops out amongst the brown suede. Is there a way to touch it up so that it blends in better with the brown?
