Brought home my first AE shoes today, black Strands, after weeks of lusting & researching. The incredibly patient salesperson helped me through trying on tens of shoes until we found the right fit. I normally wear an 11.5D and after plenty of trial-and-error, found the 9.5EEE was the best fit for my square, flat feet.
In 30 years, this is the first pair of shoes I've owned that actually fit. I'll ignore anyone that laughs at me wearing my Strands with shorts because, gosh-darn it, at least they'll fit. (Okay, I might not wear them with shorts, but khakis...)
