The boulder, grand Cayman, etc are kind of narrower for other peoples info. I like them myself.

I went with my same 65 size. Length and width seemed fine. I could just feel a part of the sole pushing into the side/ball of my foot. Since I wasn't crazy about them anyway, I figured best to send em back.

On the back Mctavish, they are comfortably larger than most of their dress shoes. I wouldn't change sizes. I have a pair. They are great, flexible casual shoes.

Just saw eagle rivers 2nds are down to $117. Had to laugh, as I bought and returned them when they were closer to $200. Ordered in my 5 last size (9d) and they seemed huge in the toe box. Plus, I expected a MUCH darker finish. Something about the light color made the soles jump out too much. I have since seen pics here on SF of someone who darkened them substantially and they looked great! Thinking of trying them in a 8.5d. I figure the leather is soft enough to stretch a little if needed. I am also hoping to eliminate the need for boot socks, as I live in Texas and, well, we don't exactly have a winter like some of you.

 

After trying on the Gobi in both 9d and 8.5d, I decided on the 8.5. I was shocked that I went shorter than my 65 size, but they fit like a glove. Anyone have a comparison of the 222 vs 809? What about the 222 vs 511? (My snuff fullertons may fit me the best of all my AE.)

 

Thanks!

Question for you sir.  The Gobi and going down to 8.5, how does the rear section (heel & waist of the shoe) fit in comparison to a 9D 65 last?  

 

 

I have a bit of room in the rear in the 9D 65 last, and have toe room.  Was also considering going down to 8.5D for the Gobi, or 9B (which none are ever on the shoebank)

 

Thanks

The custom colour Neumok webgem is available again, but it seems the number of colour options has dropped from previous years.
Nothing like the range in the photo below.

I had two different pair of 9d 2nds sent my way. Both looked perfect but went back with structural/insole issues. Frustrating but my SA took great care of me. He ended up ordering a handful of them in 9 and 8.5 and picking out the best. The 9d was definitely (too) roomy in the toe box, the 8.5 felt slightly short and a little snug at the widest part of my foot. I didn't notice too much difference in the rear, both seemed to fit ok when the laces were pulled tight, but the shorter length did eliminated slippage. I spent about 3 days wearing them around the house before deciding. Though lined, the suede is very giving. After 5 wears mine are still a little snug but I expect them to loosen up with time. They are super comfy!

Stay Away from burnished red! :brick: 

 

I do not think all the colors are loaded yet as it says 14 will be available

Got my Bleeckers in the mail yesterday. What a stunning design. And since I grew up on the actual Bleecker St. in Manhattan, a special delight. My wife tends to offer relatively muted praise of my footwear, but she was gushing about the Bleeckers.

 

To answer a question that came up before, I would definitely not size down with the 65 last. Zero extra room. A little snug even, but I'm a little wide for a 9D.

 

Incidentally, AE has effectively extended their "Extra 20% of Clearance" deal by simply lowering the clearance prices once the promotion ended. If you're someone like me who just can't bring themselves to spend $385 on new shoes, this is the opportunity to buy. Classic models tend not to be on clearance (especially not in traditional colors), but there's still plenty of choices.

 

Finally, I also ordered the Sturgis in black to see if I liked it. An attractive boot, but I'm not a boot guy, so I feel like the upper part of the upper is constantly poking me.

Ah, I see. The McTavish is all over the map, it seems. Best to just try it on if you can. Or order two sizes and return the other.

Rocket - don't rethink anything. Lets say you measure 9d. If you get 8.5d in the 65, get that here. If you get 8.5e in the 65, get 8.5d here. Simple.
