post #16261 of 70737
I am planning to purchase Leeds cordovan from online store but I am not sure about sizing. Since I am living in Canada I can't go to store front to try/purchase. I know Harry Rosen carries few ae models (Park ave, Dalton and parkway i think) and Dalton is in 1 last which same as Leeds. Is it safe to try Dalton boots to check sizing for Leeds since they are in same last?

I have few Alden models to compare size

Grant Last boots 7D
Alden Indy 6D

Thanks in advance

I think it is better than nothing, and it will give you some idea as to whether or not the last shape is generally pleasing to your foot, and for how much room your toes have.  However, boots do fit differently than shoes due to their height, amount of lacing, etc., so you may still find some subtle differences in fit.

For the time being, i would wipe with a damp clothe, and thoroughly hit it with a horsehair brush.  Spray a squirt or two of water on the horsehair brush from time to time, and see how you make out. 

 

Thoroughly do the damp cloth, i would much prefer all that buildup on a cloth rather than a brush... you should see a ton of polish come off.

If it is on the same last, then it is pretty safe to say that the fit will be near identical.  Because the Dalton is a boot, there may be a slight variance to the Leeds, but i'm sure you can get an accurate fitting.  If you have the disposable income, purchase two pairs a half size apart, try them both on, then return one.... rather than going back and forth with different sizes.

Has anyone found a good belt to match with the smokey grey mctavish?

Thank you for reply. Generally, is 1 last tts? can anyone compare 1 last and 5 last in size wise? since I can try on non-boots AE in 5 last.

Ah thank you for suggestion, but it is painful to get refund for HST i paid for border crossing if I return one pair.(no duties due to NAFTA)
So it is not really practicable. But I will definitely try on Dalton before I order Leeds.

In my experience the 1-Last is true to size.  For me, I can either wear the same size in the 5-Last, or I can go up a half size in length and down one size in width to accomplish a similar amount of comfort.  The reason I know this is because the 5-Last creases funny on my feet, so sometimes I have to adjust to the longer length if I want the creases to fall above the captoe.

Honestly with that kind of shoe, I wouldn't worry too much about being matchy matchy since it is strictly casual.  I could see that shoe looking good with a raw denim with either a navy or brown belt.  I'm sure with the gray, you can play with a lot of combinations of belts/pants and get a funky, yet still subtle and stylish outfit....

Same with me.  I wear a 10D on the 5 last, but a 9.5D/10D will fit just as good on the 1....

There are a bunch of stores downtown that sell AE. Might be worth a call to see if they have something comparable to try. Off the top of my head, there's Rego, Robert Jones, Harry Young and Pace.

What color pants/trousers would you wear with red neumoks?

I find the 1-last to be TTS as well. I wear 8.5D Indy boots and 9D on the AE 1-last. However, I found the 1-lasted Dundee chukka boots to be noticeably roomier than the other 1-lasted shoes I have (Hamptons, Wilbert, Bradley). How does the Indy boots fit you? 8.5D Indy boots are pretty roomy for me width-wise in the forefoot if I'm wearing thin socks, but they feel perfect with moderately thick socks.

I think trying on the Daltons should help give you an idea of the fit of the 1-last.

Just off the top of my head, I could see them working with denim, blues, yellows if you have them, olive green, and probably grey.

Can anyone recommend a good edge dressing for the walnut strand?
