Sooooooooo i just got back from the Philly AE store, yes walked through the many inches of snow, and can now report that 5 of my 10 pairs of AEs are likely the wrong size. On the 5 last I have been buying 11.5Ds but once they broke in they were too loose, well I confirmed that I should be buying 11D instead.
This is quite a bummer but I guess its good to know now before I continue my shoe shopping. The SA gave me some tongue pads to help take up some room in the shoe, lets see how that works.
Sounds like it's time to buy 5 more pairs!!!
Seriously, this happened to me too. I'm 11 3e on the brannock, so had been buying that size. Soon enough discovered 10.5 3e fit me better across all AE lasts
