Allen Edmonds Appreciation Thread - reviews, pictures, sizing, etc... - Page 4153  

post #62281 of 70737



While these go with nothing I am wearing today, I just got them and had to put them on - a pair of Harrisons I just received from the outlet for $127!  They look so good and for that price I feel like I'm stealing.

You're not alone. We just don't get to provide input on these pictures.

Got my Kirkwoods in size 12E and 13D - love the shoe but neither are great fit....ugh and double ugh..I really like this cross between beefroll and boatshoe. May try a 12eee and 13B just to see if I can dial this in.

New to style forum and enjoying all the appreciation for Allen Edmonds I'm some what new to Allen Edmonds I own two pairs a walden in black and a cavanaugh in oxblood. I have had very good experiences with Allen Edmonds and there amazing customer service. I have a question that hopefully you all can help me with. Ok so I have two pairs of loafers both of which have padded heels and some what of an arch support. I have noticed that shoes that have the original insole " leather insoles" Look pretty much flat. After wearing and the cork footbed molding to my foot will it create a mold of my foot and in theory have the arch support that my foot naturally has or will the leather insole stay flat in the arch area. I need some advice before I jump in and get something that will not work. Any advice would be helpful thanks

I was having a similar problem with finding a proper fit on the Kirkwoods (tried 10D and 10E) and decided to compromise and just get the Maritimes (in 9.5 E).  I hope the ability to control the tightness of the lacing will help alleviate the issues I was having with fit.

Part of my issue is the pattern - just does not look as good on my foot as other pairs of beefrolls or boat shoes. If I can not get a perfect fit then I may have to pass all together. 12E is really tight on me and my toe is a touch to close to the end otherwise I would roll with them and the 13D has too much buckle along the top sidewall. If AE would make a friggin 12.5 things would be much easier for me.

 

What was your fit issues?

Yeah I feel you. I really like my pair but they suck fit wise.

Has anyone seen the new Cornwallis and Yorktown that have been showing up on the Shoebank? I saw Paul said the Cornwallis is his new favorite, can anyone describe them or post pics?

Also, someone buy the Black Cordovan Fifth Streets in 10E before I talk myself into it even though that's not a great size for me. Especially since a shell dress boot is just all sorts of a contradiction.

I've never been a big fan of the park as it has never really appealed to me. Would the University, Vernon or flat iron be good alternatives?

Is the Maxfield or Cody not a formal, funeral type loafer? Sadly none of the black lace-ups woo me like they do in colors like bourbon, etc.

I am just constantly in a search for loafers that fit my foot properly (high-ish instep with otherwise low volume flat feet that run slightly wide and have a narrow heel).  The only loafers I have ever found that fit perfectly without alteration are my AE Riminis (from their Italian collection and discontinued).  

I had a pair of the AE Port Washington boat shoes in 10D and I found they were too snug in width (I plan to list them on eBay tonight), but these Kirkwoods seem to fit longer; hence, my sizing down.

I didn't even realize that AE limited its boat shoe type of shoes to whole sizes - that complicates things even further.  Best of luck to you.

Don't knock the PAs, they're one of my favs😊
Those alternatives you listed kind of have a lot going on for a funeral....id say harrisons would be your best bet. I totally wanted to say baton rouge and be an asshole but decided to play nice.

The Kirkwood discussion had me chuckling a little bit - I tried them in both browns in my 65 size and they actually fit better than any other boat shoe out there, but I hated how they looked.

@DeathandTaxes - Riminis, awesome. Check out the arezzo - to big for me but might work for you. Also the Patriot/ascher, but you might need an E in those.

Welcome to the forum. The foot bed should compress and mold to your feet. I'm no expert but I'm sure it would be hard to say since it depends on how much arch support you would need. When switching to shoes with leather insoles it took my feet awhile to get used to and actually stronger to support my body weight.

If you like the padded support, AE makes a few versions with padded insoles. You can also look at Brooks Brothers models which have padded insoles. There are also leather wedges for arch support that you can also get.

I would recommend to let the shoes break in to see if you need additional arch support. You can accelerate the break in by wearing them a few times in door.
