Occasional lurker, but first-time poster here: I have a question about Allen Edmonds and hope this is an appropriate thread to place it in.
I've bought a couple pair of AE loafers and found them to fit really well. I wear a 10.5D. So I bought a pair of Park Avenues from eBay in that size. They were in great condition but had obviously been well broken in by their previous owner. Anyways, they did not feel great. I guess it was the way they creased on top of the shoe. So I tried again, this time a used pair of Park Aves in an 11D, but I had the same result. I could wear either pair if I had to, but they were definitely uncomfortable.
So my question is this: is the discomfort more likely to be a result of the style? Or the fact that they were broken in by some other dude's foot? I like the style, but don't want to drop $350 on a piar of new Park Aves unless I can be fairly confident they'll work out.
Thanks in advance.
