My issue is that the upper of the shoe already pushes against the top of my foot (sometimes to the point of discomfort). Does anyone have any potential solutions? I was wondering if I switch to a 9.5 EE if that would fix the bowing and discomfort? I'm more concerned with fixing the discomfort on the top of my foot than the bowing.

Thanks!


First of all - thanks for again reminding me about those Lake Shore Drives that I missed out on because the SA wouldn't check to see if it was still available in my size (which it in fact was at the time).

 

Secondly, welcome to my world of pain.  What is your normal size?  In a lot of AE's styles I usually go down one half size and stay with a D width - this is what I did with the Grayson, Jermyn, Westchester.  None of these bother me on the top of my foot at all because of the shape of the 97 last.  However, for the 114, 800 and 2592 lasts, if the loafer's leather is stiff enough, that top area is so bad I have to go from a D to an E, then they are ok.

 

The Lake Shore Drive's material is already really forgiving, much more so than the Grayson.  To me it sounds like the last isn't the greatest for you - I might check out something else.  I think increasing the width (because I tried this with the Manchester) would really mess with the heel to the point where you couldn't wear it.

I'm sure they are 8.5D because I'm the seller and I haven't posted them at The MO yet. What you bought was probably from the GMTO. This isn't from that batch.

Congratulation on the purchase.

I think he's saying that he WISHES they were 9D so he COULD buy them.

Why selling? Too many Eagles?

I have decided the same.

Haha you're right :-) sorry I misread that.

I'm waiting on a burgundy shell Frankenstitch to miraculously show up. Want to be ready with funds when that happens

Completely my bad. I misread a few key words in your post. I didn't mean to offend with my post, I (wrongly) thought you meant it was 9D and you bought it yesterday. Obviously I need to read more carefully next time.

Now... What can we do about those toe fingers to make an 8.5D fit.

This is a throwback. This was the AE Dalton in the mid 1990's.

Rain this morning so I went with the Aberdeens. I'm thinking about changing the laces for some flat kind. There seems to be a lot of room in the exposed eyelets.

Awful weather in Brooklyn this morning. Walking against the wind led to thoroughly soaked trousers.

Long Branches had my dogs covered, though.

I wanted to order the McAllisters in Bourbon, because that's what I had tried on in the store, but I saw they only have bourbon available for the McAllisters with dainite rubber sole or with combination tap sole. What are the pros/cons of those vs the regular leather sole?

The combination tap sole is a great sole. It is very hardy. I have it on my Patriots, and despite the fact that I'm really hard on soles and have worn them during the rain and walked on wet concrete with them, they hardly show any wear.

 

I have the Clark Streets, too, which have the Dainite sole. The sole is comfortable, but it's not nearly has hardy as the combination tap sole.
