Yep, I sized up in my Patriots. Oddly, they are a size 9EEE, yet they fit more snugly than my 8.5EEE Strands.

I'm finding that I'm walking the leather soles of my shoes down at the toe quicker on the right than on the left; it seems crazy, especially on JR soles, but should I just topy or toe tap soles from now on? Topy-ed soles are not showing uneven wear. (Damned knee injury changed my gait. I push off differently now when walking...)

Wow, they did an amazing job with those PTBs.

Was wondering what the style name of your To Boot NY shoes was?  I like how they don't show the welt like the AE Carlyle does.  Looking forward to hearing back.

You will not see a full-body shot of me very often . . . but I thought the Sheltons really made this ensemble work:

 

 

I can't believe that with the Sheltons now being discontinued, AE doesn't offer a single saddle.  They have to fix that post-haste.

Is that your house or a store?  Nice rack ;)

That's my closet.  Used to be a bedroom.  Those are just the boots - I have three other racks for everything else.  :)

Will AE recraft a shoe which has had the rubber toplift replaced by a different cobbler?

Unfortunately I couldn't get a concrete reason for them to be seconds. Sales dude said he saw no issues with them. I figured I was putting up $10 to bet against him...

Received these today. They look pretty good. I can't tell what is and isn't a reason for a 2nd. They both have a small nick in the sole under the arch (who cares) and one has some very minor discoloration around the broguing (also who cares), but the stitching is weird. They look fine from the outside except that you can see into the brogue holes because the second line of stitching doesn't attach to the leather underneath. They are fully assembled but only one line of stitching holds them together. Theoretically this doesn't bother me. I doubt they will suffer any ill effects from it. 

 

One question I had as a relative newcomer to AE's shoes in general, and the 65 last in particular, is about fit: I measure somewhere between 10-1/2 D or E and an 11 D. Foot length is almost spot on for a 10-1/2 and width could be either, but my heel-ball (arch length) is almost spot on for an 11.

 

I got the neumok in an 11 and I notice that while fit feels pretty good, they seem exceptionally long in the toe.

 

Width seems solid in that the laces pull the two sides just shy of meeting (thick socks).

 

Unlaced, I can shove my foot forward enough to get my index finger behind my heel.

If I lace them up snug, I can barely squeeze a pinky between my heel and the shoe, which seems fine.

 

But then there is this 1 inch space between my longest toe and the tip of the leather on the toe. Is that typical of the 65 last? Long and pointy?

Correct fit is determined by heel to ball placement, so go with that. Toe length is generally inconsequential. The 5 last will run long in the toe for most feet.

For length-wise fit, the widest part of your foot (ball of foot/where your toes connect to the rest of your foot) should be at the widest part of the shoe. This is the proper flex point of the shoe. So you should be sizing based off of your heel-to-ball of foot size, not heel to big toe. To put it another way, if your toes were to be chopped off, you'd still wear the same size shoe you did when you had them.
