How do they size compared to other AEs you have? I own various pairs of AE shoes and compared to my Patriots, I find that the patriots are extremely tight on the instep. I am thinking about returning for a new size… anyone have tips on how to get more room on the instep while maintaining a proper fit?
In case you missed my prior posts, I have been wearing 11.5D in 5-last oxfords. After being fitted this weekend I'm more like an 11D or 10.5E in those shoes. The Patriots are 10EEE! The 10.5E I originally came home with were indeed too tight. The EEE's are very comfortable.
