You could also try insoles. I bought a bunch of shoes in Japan last year in 9E before realizing I was a 9D. So when I was in Canada over Christmas I went to Walmart and got some ProFoot insoles which make the shoes very comfortable. So much so that I might consider buying 9E shoes in the future. The only thing I'm unsure about is whether they'll lose their shape and need replacing at some point (the insoles, I mean). If so, it might be a bit of a nuisance. So far so good, though.

These are the ones I got (assuming the link works). They're different from most insoles I've seen in that they cover from the heel to the ball of the foot, rather than the entire inside of the shoe:

I think, though, others have said they don't like wearing insoles so it's certainly a personal preference.

On the insoles, I should add that because they don't fill up the entire shoes, the effect is less than other insoles, such that an E width with the insole is, I think, slightly roomier than a D without.

Very very boots...

I guess I'll hit up the local AE store to try on the 222 last, even though the manager working there is an ass. He gives off the snobby vibe, kinda like the employees at every Brooks Brother's I've been to.

No, discontinued styles are no longer allowed. This is a change in policy that has been covered extensively in this thread and the AE MTO thread over the past two weeks.

Maybe this manager is tired of getting burned spending a lot of time fitting customers who then proceed to order shoes from other sources, depriving him of a commission that he was working hard for. Just a thought.

With one exception, I've never enjoyed interacting with BB staff.

The two normal AE stores I've been to were hit or miss, with the managers noticeably more helpful than the other staff. The best AE employee I've interacted with is Kenard at the Charleston outlet.

Does anyone have pics of the Addison in the wild?

A few occasions in the Madison Ave NYC store, I was given clearly incorrect information about shoe lasts (though it's possible that when I said "Neumora" he thought I was saying "new mora"). Not wanting to be rude, I didn't correct him when he assured me the square-toed Neumoras I was wearing at the moment were on the 8 Last.

I've found everyone in the Rockefeller Center store to be excellent in knowledge, service, and attitude (though I do always make a point to wear my AEs when I visit so they know I'm serious). And of course the ladies at the Jeffersonville Outlet always go above and beyond.

But I'm sure it's common for SA at any upper-end retailer to size up whether certain customers are likely to buy or are just milling around killing time.

BTDubs, wearing my chili Refent Streets to a school board meeting today. My very first pair of AEs, and also my favorite (for many reasons, not the least of which may be sentimentality). Looks very mid-brown indoors, but natural lighting makes the red undertones really pop.

Fifth Streets ITW at O'Hare airport.  Picked these up for $149 from last week's Shoebank boot promotion.  I've experienced none of the squeaking or break-in issues others have reported.  Loving them so far!

Looks great DJ.

Why is one only laced part way up?

 

Edit: Sorry OCD

Good catch! :)  The left shoe came with a shorter lace.  I called the shoebank and they're going to send me a replacement pair of laces at no cost.  Gotta love the Shoebank customer service!

There's more than just the soles. The lasts are also different. Amok, if memory serves, is made on the 4 last, whereas Mojave is on the 809 last. 

Mojave also looks a lot like Clarks desert boots, and Amok is a bit dressier chukka. I got both during the recent sale and I will share my thoughts later today.

I second this. I was in fact looking for the pictures last night myself too.

What product did you use?  I think I'd like to try that with my brown neumoks I recently got via the 2nds sale.
