I have the RL Saunders and they have the leather insole, not the Poron. Also, the AE RL's are most often compared to AE's Independence line as far as the quality of the leather goes, though I don't have any of these to compare them too. My Saunders also have the 2-piece combination heel like the cordovan AE's. they fit a little bit more snug than than my 5-last shoes. I like them a lot.
So for sizing do you stay with the same size as your 5 last shoes? As in it is not so snug that you need to make a change in size?
I'm looking to get a pair in tan and suede.
