Iv'e read that I should go down half a size but this is the first I read about a full size. I'm a 8D in my AE's but I had to go with a 7.5 for the kenilworth. HMM!

Hey guys,

 

I jumped on merlot franciscan from this thread: http://www.styleforum.net/t/383341/allen-edmonds-monk-strap-megathread-huge-sale

 

 

I'm wondering how these would fit? I usually wear size 7.5 - 8.5 and have wide feet.

 

My current shoes, 7EE ferragamos, are good for me length-wise but they are very tight in the width (probably because I've grown since I got them).

 

I like my shoes to feel a bit loose, so hoping these will be comfy!

Someone else asked for a spreadsheet download option. Can you tell me why this is important and how you would use this?

Thank you,

 

 

Wow good to see my request was made reality!! I think this will really help us consumers target shoes within our price range.

Would it be possible to have the inventory status for each shoe on the site? Even if it's not totally accurate? I think it would be helpful to know roughly how many pairs of each shoe is available.

 

I know this isn't exactly what you're looking for but, if you select a model it WILL tell you which stores have it.

 

So as long as you know which models you want, you can easily narrow down the store locations.

You may well only need to go down half a size - that's what I did for my other shoes.  I size at an 11.5 but wear an 11E.  My McTavish indeed fits larger than my other shoes.  Even the salesperson at the AE store told me my McTavishes were too large (but not so large that they're uncomfortable).  I will say that they fit much better if I wear thicker socks.  That's hard to do in the summer when it gets really hot :)

Evening gentlemen, I've been trying to find a traditional pair of loafers that fit without slipping and it has been a nightmare.  Is there a certain style of AE loafers with a higher vamp?  I'd prefer traditional penny loafer rather than tassel if possible.  Thanks!

Do you guys throw in a tongue pad if you have a slight bit of heel slip on a shoe?

Depends if the shoe is new or not. I usually get some heelslip while I'm breaking in shoes, while the soles are still rigid. Just wear bandaids if the slip is giving me blisters. If there broken in and slipping sometimes just a thicker pair of socks does the trick for me. But I do have some tounge pads in a pair of loafers and they works really well.

Forgive me, being new to forums, and to this thread. I am buying my first AE shoes, have a pair of Lexingtons on order. I did not see many reviews and wondered if folks here have had good experiences with this shoe. Humbly Bb.

There are a couple that work for me ( high instep) so of course, AE is cutting them out. One is the McGraw. The other is the RL Singleton. Both are penny's. Some sizes can be had at the outlets/ Shoebank. None of the current AE loafers worked for me.

I just received an MTO pair of Lexingtons made out of brown CXL yesterday. I haven't worn them other than trying them on, but I like them. Fits about the same as most other 65-lasted AE's I have. I think it's a versatile style.

Fit pic I took yesterday for the MTO thread:

At 34, I think I'm just hitting the point where I can get away with wearing them.

Perhaps I'm not the typical younger guy, but I'm 28 and just purchased two pairs of tassles (Grayson webgem/MTO & Lake Shore Drive MTO)
