I don't see how the fit would be any different. They size the shoe on the last, with lining or not. Because of this the fit would be basically the same with or without the lining, at least until they break in, but that has less to do with the sizing and more to do with how the lined vs unlined shapes to your feet.

Not sure what this guy was doing, but here is a prime example of a consumer wrongfully trying to fix his shoes instead of working with AE to resolve an issue.
Remember guys, use AE's customer service to your disposal, don't try to fix issues yourself.
Review of Chocolate Daltons-
"I've dreamed about owning this boot since 2011. While I was picking up some polish for my Walnut Strands, I noticed the new boot on the display stand. My wife told me not to try them on because she knew I would buy them. 2 years later, I was presented with an opportunity to acquire a pair. To my disbelief, the boots are made to order. So it took 3 weeks for my package to arrive. It felt like Christmas when my boots finally arrived. I tried them on on the carpet for 30+ minutes. I didn't want to scuff the bottom until I was sure of the fit. Everything seemed like it was going to workout.While wearing the boots the next day at work, I started to feel some pain at the top of feet. It was around 10 am and I was at the office for a total of 2.5 hours so far. I understand that there’s a break in period for shoes and was expecting some discomfort during the first day. By lunch time, the pain was unbearable. I headed home to grab my trusty Strand’s to finish out the work day. I left my boots at the office to wear them in the morning to complete the breaking in process. I’d be damned to finally get this boot and let one day of discomfort stop me from wearing them.I was only able to wear the shoe for 2 - 3 hours at a time everyday. The top of my foot would be sore from the pressure of the boot. The discomfort was from the tongue area of the boot. Right where the tongue is sewn into the boot.After two weeks of trying to solve the issue with wearing the shoe, I called Allen Edmonds customer service department. I wanted to know if this is ongoing issue that would solve itself over time. The representative was very pleasant and well mannered and assured me that this is not normal. I agreed to wear the boots another 2 weeks and call back to see if there was some other method I could use to solve my issue.I wore the shoe on one more occasion and sent the shoes to the shoe cobbler the next day. I don’t know why I didn't think of this at the beginning of pain but the shoe cobbler is the expert on the caring of shoes after you purchase them. I asked the cobbler if he could stretch the shoe by the tongue area. He assured me he could and I left my boot with him for the next week. During that time, I had the cobbler add sole guards (getting ready for the snow) and heel taps to preserve the original heel.Fast forward, I picked up my boot and could tell that some of the issue had been resolved. But to my dismay, after wearing the boots for 2 - 3 hours the pain was back and leather was still pressing against the top of my foot. Still not willing to give up on these delicious looking boots, I decided to wear the boots with no laces. I figured that this would relieve the pressure from the tongue area and provide me with the solution I needed. Surprise again, I was still unable to make for 3 hours of wear. Now i know how women feel when they wear painful shoes for looks only. It's ashame that these boots won't work out. I was looking forward to years of wear.Now I have useless $400 boots that I've yet to wear an entire day. I’ll have to sell them on some exchange to recoup some of my money. Then I can purchase another pair of Allen Edmonds. I’ll most likely purchase the Fifth Street because I still need another boot for the Winter snow months and I've already had success with this style.Make sure you try these boots on a carpeted area for a prolonged period of time. If you feel any pain, you may want to order another pair or try a different shoe."post #35914 of 7073712/31/13 at 9:35pm^^^Scottyboy, I don't see why you'd want to give this guy more airtime. It's like giving a bullhorn to a heckler. Just wait a few weeks and someone will come over here and spew off about how bad his AE shoes are.post #35915 of 7073712/31/13 at 9:50pmpost #35916 of 7073712/31/13 at 11:33pmQuote:Originally Posted by kentyman
I would guess the chili welt is a little lighter, and obviously more red.
The edge dressings you mentioned are the only ones I have confirmed from Allison. I have them listed below with links to examples. I feel like there might be a non-transparent brown edge, but I'm not positive. Anyone else know?
Thanks Kentyman! Just a minor update on edge dressing. Tan is different from natural according to Allison. Suede Stewarts have the tan ink edge dressing while banchory's have the natural edge dressing.post #35917 of 7073712/31/13 at 11:37pmpost #35918 of 707371/1/14 at 12:11ampost #35919 of 707371/1/14 at 5:00amQuote:
I have a few suede samples on the way right now from her so I am sure she would send you anything you wanted. You may even find out they have a few things laying around not shown on the site or catalogpost #35920 of 707371/1/14 at 6:51amQuote:
I think I was the first to realize we could do a MTO for the $197 sale price, and I ordered mine 6 weeks ago yesterday. Was told 8 weeks, so hopefully soon.post #35921 of 707371/1/14 at 7:16amQuote:Originally Posted by GOP Shoe Guy

FYI, for anyone who is still interested, I got an email yesterday from Allison confirming it's not too late to do the MTO for the sale price.post #35922 of 707371/1/14 at 7:45ampost #35923 of 707371/1/14 at 8:21ampost #35924 of 707371/1/14 at 9:32ampost #35925 of 707371/1/14 at 10:44am
