These look new and unworn. Beautiful shoes! I need a pair of shell Daltons.

I'm just going to put this out there:  I understand some of the advantages of shell cordovan, but I only seem to like it in burgundy, and I like the look of calf better in general.  My wallet approves, so don't try to talk me out of it!

More shell for us! Hooray!

Have any of you guys with high insteps found certain lasts to be more forgiving/ comfortable? I have, what I believe to be, a normal arch, however my instep has forced me to go up a width in shoe (108 last and still not 100% comfortable) and am thinking about purchasing some new shoes during the Anniversary Sale,  and would like something more accommodating.

I will be purchasing the Park Avenues in Black and possibly the same for Brown.

However, I do like the look of the AE Warwick in Brown.

My question is whether the AE Warwick Monk Straps are appropriate for an office? Or should I stick to the Park Avenues, possibly Fifth Avenue?

Thanks

A single monk is more appropriate for the office/suit than a double monk IMO. Pretty classic style. Single monks are underrated and are awesome smile.gif

 

Agreed . . . and I would add that IMO all monks (single and double) are more formal than any bluchers.

Try the new 201

My Leeds are the most comfortable AEs I own.  They're bluchers on the 1 last, both of which are a godsend to those with high insteps.

For derby/bluchers, I go from my Brannock size C up to E.

 

For oxford/balmorals, I go 1/2 size down and wider up to 3E.

Wow!  You go from a C to a 3E for oxfords/balmorals?!?  Is that, and your derby/blucher increase, across all lasts?  Do you have trouble with your heal staying put when increasing the width by that much? 

post #57989 of 70737


Thanks! I do very much like the look of the new Rogues!  I have only tried on shoes in the 108 last (as there are many discontinued/cheap models available), do you have any experience in the sizing comparisons?  Do you find the 201 last to be true(r) to your Brannock size?

I also go down 1/2 size in length with balmorals; I go from my Brannock size 10.5 C -> 10 3E. There's a little bit of space width-wise but no heel slippage.
