Being outside the US, I usually save on shipping by using a forwarding company. To save further I let them consolidate my purchases before sending it to my address. Finally received some of the shoes I've purchased from shoebank and allenedmonds.com

They don't look too bad to me, and my pair seem to have some similar wrinkling as well, just not as bad. I didn't even think about returning them. Also, it's on part of the boot that most people will rarely see, and the more you wear them, the more they'll crease and this will not be noticeable. I don't know though - maybe I'm just jealous that I didn't get mine for $129 smile.gif

Mine had some of this "bunching" or wrinkling as well. Almost like the outer leather wasn't sewn to the lining completely straight. But it wasn't nearly as bad as his. I figured that I'm going to have quite a bit of creasing on the shaft anyway due to my unmanly skinny chicken calves, so I just accepted it.

If mine had been as bad as his I would probably have returned it as well. I've bought seconds with much more minor missteps (alliteration intended).

I wear 8.5D/E in calf/shell 5-65 balmorals, and 9D in the 1-511 calf/shell Dalton (though the calf feels a tad narrower). I tried 8.5D and 9D in the Shaker Heights and the 9D fits perfectly. Quite comfortable.

I ordered mine in the same size as 95% of my other AE's (including several 5 lasts) and they fit great.

Thanks guys.  Sigh - another 50/50 split on size up 1/2 a size vs. same size.  Keepin' me on the fence. :brick:

Ah, I see.  That was a quick comment from the iPad.  On a bigger screen now, I think I see a bow-tie in that profile pic, so it must be Cody.  Of the few times I've been in the Park Place store, they're the only ones I'd ever met.

 

Are you guys going to the trunk show on the 20th?

My personal experience is to keep the same length but go down in width. At least, I wish I had done this. The 73 last is the only AE last where 3E is actually too generous for me.

@Kahuna75, I am officially kicking myself for not snagging the black pair I saw on the shoebank a few weeks ago. Love the contrast on that!  Nice shot.:fonz:

...those two shell shoes are the exact two models I've managed to limit myself to in 2014. Nice choices all; wear them well!

I have a sizing question. I'm about to purchase a pair of burnished chilli Park Avenues. The 12 D fits snug. Length is fine but there is a tad of tightness in the width along the forefoot. The 13D feel very comfortable, basically how I would want a pair to break in but the AE rep said they would stretch out and look bad and maybe even not fit so good. He advised me to go with the 12D and it should break in fine. What are your guys recommendation and experience. I work outside a lot and the last thing I need is sore or pain in my feet. Thx

Ah, I was just referring to the Dalton pic and tighter jeans and small legs indicated a woman. Plus every time I've been in there Cody has had a suit.

I'll be there the 20th most likely unless something comes up. Lupe knows what I'm looking for anyways, though would still like to see them in person.

Stick with the advice of the SA. My shoes would fit great when first purchased but overtime stretched out so much I had to sell them.

The "it will stretch out" thing is false and very bad advice from tha SA. Shoes need to feel comfortable when you first get them or they will never feel comfortable. This is from someone who was in the shoe industry for 20 + years. A podiatrist will tell you the same thing. Maybe try a 12E, but a jump to 13D is probably not a good idea.

Does your foot spill over the footbed/insole? Why not try a 12e? If your foot does not spill over the footbed to wear you can feel the edges of the insole and you are not stretching the leather with the front of your foot to where it is overflowing the welt then stick to what the SA said...

Do they not have a 12 1/2 D?
