Tbh, a 7.5E would probably fit me better than my current 8E, but 8E is still acceptable.  Oh well.

Feet get longer over time anyways right?  lol

oh and don't feel swell a little as the day goes on?  

(I'm trying to ease my mind a little if you didn't notice)

Well its weird eh. My current regular shoes are 59€ shoes from Gallus (yeah you don't know them wink.gif). I have two pair. One in 40 and one in 41, but both are "wide", although I couldn't tell you if thats the AE equivalent of E, EE or EEE.. I cant tell you which is 40 or 41 without looking at the markings and both are super comfortable but the rubber soles are through through. I glued some leather over the rubber soles to make them last longer smile.gif
The AE Leeds in 8EEE really hurt my right pinky toe a lot but the fit was perfect otherwise. Now I have the Leeds in 8.5EEE and the pinky is fine but the fit is a bit loose otherwise. This is all on the right foot. On the left, both 8 and 8.5 feel great fit wise and the shoe is not loose, even in 8.5, but the creases are obviously weird and I do think that the shoe is a bit too long for the foot.

Why dont they just make 8 EEEE?

creasing on my right shoe is not affecting the cap toe of my PA, but it is slightly affecting the cap toe of my left shoe.... wah,  same issue as you lol

I just received a pair of Patriot seconds, in burgundy.  They have more problems than any of the four or five pairs of seconds I've ordered before -- some loose stitching around the toe box of the left shoe and a sort of divot in the vamp of the right shoe.  What do you guys think -- worth returning, and eating the $10 restocking fee?  They cost $127.

stitching is not a problem whatsoever, but that puncture looking thing on the vamp would make me want to return them.

The Warwick and Norwich are very different shoes from my perspective. I have both. The Warwick is a lower profile, longer looking shoe. Mine are an 11D. The Norwich is a higher profile, thicker soled shoe. I believe mine are also 11D but could be 11.5 B, I don't recall. I believe the Warwick does have a padded insole, but hadn't noticed until your question.

I have yet to try this new last one, did you take the same size as the 65 last?

I posted a response on the next page.

Yes feet get flatter and wider with age l as the tendons loosen up. In the meantime thicker socks would help. Or get an orthotic insert to reduce the volume inside plus you get additional cushioning.

You could also choose models with poron insoles which take up more volume or the indy line insole which is basically the standard leather insole with and extra leather topped cushion on top.

While you are considering these things, feel free to kop my 8E burgundy shell strands that you see in my sig :-)

Ouch. I didn't know feet COULD even get wider than mine are currently. If and when that happens? Bespoke.

I love the look of this loafer, it's the same last as the Patriot, but the finer (more almond shape) apron gives them a more refined look IMO. The stitched apron seems to be a new AE technique. The stitching is closer than their other penny loafers, and they have a fine line running in-between the stitches. Very nice, and it looks like i can get this model in oxblood as well...

 

Loving these shoes............

Yeap, from Earl. However after finding some Alden 9015s I'm torn.

How does that Rutledge compare to the PA?



And is there any last that is known to have a bit more room in the toe box?

 



I got them both in the same size. I normally wear and measure a 12D in most lasts. I briefly had some Harrisons in 12D that fit good, but since this Rutledge was only available in an 11.5D I had to try it. Right foot felt great but the taper to the toe on the left got my pinky pretty good. And being 2nds no telling if it was something funky with the lasting process. Its all for the best though, as beautiful as it is it would get limited use in my rotation right now.

@traditional AE - had a question for you. Is it just me or do the older 97 loafers (Jermyn, Westchester, etc) fit much narrower than the Grayson, even if they are the same width?

Btw - those Warwick do look really nice. I never tried that one.
post #62654 of 70737

Greetings gentlemen. I'm a newb to the SF and the AE world. Just wanted to introduce myself as I've been perusing this great forum and I appreciate the knowledgeable people and info. So I owned ZERO AE shoes 3 months ago and now I'm the proud owner of 11 (sorry, only 7 pairs pictured). Yeah, I went nuts but its a healthy mixed of first and seconds and also used pairs from ebay. I'll post a few pics of what I'm working with. Looking forward to interacting with you freaks!!!

 

Back Row L to R :

Park Avenues - Black

Cliftons - Walnut

Mcallister - Merlot

Strands - Walnut

 

Front Row:

Westgate - Black

Austin - Chilli? (I believe these used to be walnut and were burnished.)

Vintage Leeds - Burgundy

Cannot comment on those two, but older shoes on the same last are different. My original McAllisters are a 10D. By newer ones are an 11D and the older pair seem larger. I have an older Grayson in an 11B that fits fine, and a newer one I believe in an 11D that equally fits fine. I had a Newport I never could wear in a 10.5D due to pressure on top of foot, but now have an I believe 11b that fits awesome.
