I've found that kennilworth runs slightly large. My other shoes in the 5-65 last (pa and fifth ave) fit like a glove in ten D, while the kenilworth is too long. I like the shoe, but the 9.5 is too small. Haven't yet tried a ten narrow or any other combinations like that.
You might want to try an insert or something to take up a little bit of the space tho if you plan to keep them.
So I just bought my first pair of Allen Edmonds, the Brown Kenilworth (Seconds) in size 8.5 D online.
Unfortunately, I'm not sure if it's the right size for me. When I put my foot into the shoe untied, there's about a centimeter of space between my heel and the shoe. However, when I tie the shoe as tight as I can, it seems to be an okay fit. I'm really confused on sizing should be and how it should feel.
Can anyone give me some tips on determining whether this is the right size for me or not? Or should I go into a retail store and ask them to help me figure it out? (Although I'm not quite sure what the response would be bringing a pair of factory seconds into a regular retail store)
Thanks a lot!
