post #39136 of 70737

Considered a pair of Elgins today but passed since I already own the McTavish in the same color.  Going to hold out for some Rush St.'s instead when they go on sale :)

The shoes won't stretch, and the cork sole will shape to your feet which slightly reduces heel slippage with wear. You could try 9Es, but they will probably be too short.

 

You could also try experimenting with different lacing to see if that will reduce heel slippage a bit. Maybe try European Straight? It will probably look better too.

Thanks, Tomlu.

 

Why wouldn´t the 9.5Es stretch? They are a little less snug but bending the shoes while walking and occasional kneeling would also stretch them a bit, right? I fear having them stretch further and making the heel sleep more although your point about the cork sole makes sense.

 

I´m curious. How can lacing reduce slippage?

They should be perfect then. I wear them in the same type of scenario and use the Alden foot balance insole if I need a thicker one

I think so considering below it sells they are only selling sizes they have

Gents, what is the general conversion between a 5-65 / Park Avenue size and width and a 511G / Golf range size and width?

Considering come clearance 1 Ups. I am a 10.5 B or C in 5-65 lasted shoes like the PA/5th Ave.

Thanks

Slowly building a nicer wardrobe thanks to SF. I've got a pair of AE Strands in Walnut and Park Avenue in Black. I'm looking to add a third pair of AEs and just can't decide. I want brown but can't decide on a loafer, casual dress, fifth avenue style....

 

Can't make up my mind. Considering I only have 2 pairs of shoes what would you guys suggest for a third? I wear mostly slacks with dress shirt, sometimes sport coat.

I would likely either add a long wing or plain toe next
post #39143 of 70737
MacNeil in dark brown or merlot would be an awesome choice. J

I'd say Kenilworth in Bourbon. My favorite shoe by far and tastefully understated enough to transition from casual to more business formal settings.

Curse this awful Northeast winter!!! I just can't STRAND IT!!!

Any suggestions would be humbly received!
Anyone...? Anyone...? (Beuller...?)

I know this is a shoe thread, but the belts are related, right? shog[1].gif

I have a brand new Wide Basic Dress Belt in walnut in size 32. Unfortunately I am in between sizes; the 32 is 1 notch too small, meaning that the 34 would be one notch too large. That really bugs me.

Does anyone else have this issue with the belts? What do you do?

Incidentally, if anyone wants a walnut basic belt to match their walnut strands etc, PM me. Mine is new in the package with the tag still attached.

The Strands in walnut and Park Ave in black must be the official intro shoes for AE. I did the exact same thing a few months ago.

I just bought 3 more pairs, but they are all casual: Eagle County boots in black, Amok chukka in tan suede, and Mojave in brown leather.

I have the strand in walnut and fifth avenue in black. I'd say go for the kenilworth in brown. Great shoe

You could just have your cobbler shorten the 34 length belt - they'll shorten it from the buckle end. There's a store in San Fran I was at that only orders 44 in Smathers and Branson belts because they can customize the fit right there with you. Pretty genius if you ask me.
