Then I would agree with others - return them for a refund.  Then head over to either an AE Store or Nordstroms and get a professional fit according to your arch, size, width, and styles you would be best fitted in.

 

Had it been Nordstroms, they would have backed up even wearing the shoes for 6 months - because they guarantee with a money back refund or replacement that their staff will professionally fit you.

if you aren't sure of your size, then I would recommend waiting for the anniversary sale. This way, you can either go into the store and get fitted or order several sizes to find out which one works for you. The prices would be pretty comparable and the ones from Nordstrom would be first quality, not seconds.

I actually prefer the single, but anyone else notice this?

Can you share your method?

AE gurus I need your input; do the jos a bank version of the allen Edmonds have any differences from the AE originals? (PA & Fifth) I've searched but can't find anything conclusive. I see in the tent sale they are discounted more then their AE cousins. I've read about the differences with the BB versions hence the question.

One of the first things I checked into when Paul posted the MTO offer was to check into discontinued AE boots. The Brantley was on the 4 last, not sure if it the same as the 4 last today like my Cascades are on. Hmmm shell Cascades.... I too am looking for older boots made by AE that still might be an option, if anyone finds them please post them! The only other boot I have found mentioned is the Andover. And of course the Bayfield.

When I sent an email today asking if they had been shipped I was told that actually my Daltons are shipping and not my Bayfields. It is very strange because my Dalton order was cancelled and changed like 3 weeks after the original order so I find it odd that order is now shipping first. I have requested an update on my Bayfields since the info was not correct. I had my hopes up of recieving them this week, oh well...

I still very much appreciate Ae's incredible customer service just a bit perplexed and bummed by this.

That is sort of what I'm thinking. And hope so because that means mine will be coming when yours do although I am excited to see you get yours too! :-)

Thanks to Paul for the MTO program and a special thank you to Allison at AE for fantastic during the process.

 

 

 

What an absolutely stunning chukka!! Officially AE says they didn't change the shell they used a year or so ago but assigned a master burnisher to the finish of shell. The burnishing on those are some of the best work I have seen yet. Congrats those are gorgeous!

Definitely Players and definitely bluchers - I've got a half-dozen pairs, so I'm pretty familiar with the AE styles I like. smile.gif

 

Here's some pics:

 

 

Again, I prefer the streamlined look of the single sole - it's more just interesting because it's definitely changed (from even what's still in the product descriptions).

I'm pretty sure my Player's is double with a combination heel.

I just got Nathan's from the sale which are the fifth aves. I saw online somewhere that they thought the ja bank versions were made on different lasts. The fifth on 7 and the park on 8 instead of the 5 last. After receiving my shoes I think they are right. Quality is the same. The 7 seems to fit me better anyway

How exactly are loafers intended to fit? I have been wearing my Scottsdales around the house again today and when I walk at a normal pace my heel slips up and down a bit, is this intended with loafers and not something to worry about?

I think you're the only one who's confused on this issue . . .

Weird.  I prefer the double sole for the Players as I would plan on wearing it more casually.  Wonder if they're all sold like this now.

Are you sure that's a single sole? It looks like a double sole to me from your pictures. It certainly look thicker than the typical single sole. It does appear that they changed the heel so it's no longer a combination heel. I personally prefer combination heels because it looks nicer, but functionally I don't think there's any difference.
