I fit both 10.5D & 9.5EEE. I feel like I can even squeeze in 9EEE just fine on the 5 last..

 

I am not sure if 10.5D is indeed too large (no creasings happen when I wear). I do like the feeling of have least amount of empty space in the front toe area, as long as the toes are not touching the uppers.

 

When I can do 9.5EEE and 10.5D... Something is really off with the sizing.. right?

 

Which one fits the "heel to ball" of your foot better? Get that one.

are talking bal's or blucher? I do 12E in 65 lasted blucher and 12eee in bals' I started out think that 13e fit me in both...so fit can be learned over time...just takes that one pair of "Perfect" to set you on the right path...but as other poster mentioned you want the ball of your foot at the widest part of the shoe.

I still want to wear around the 9.5EEE to see how creasing lines up with the ball of feet. But I think 9.5EEE might be fitting more appropriately.

I was talking about all bals. I wore the 10.5D strands yesterdays and I felt that it was bit roomy for my toes. But mind you that I wear loafers so often that I feel weird to have footwear that has too much room in front of my toes (i.e. oxford shoes). I think that 9.5EEE allows very minimal space for my toes, giving me impression that it is more "secure."

Lots of cross-pollination between the two.

If they had them in brown, there would be no question for me because I love the 333. However, I'm not sure I need another walnut or chili, and the black just don't appeal to me. I would love to pull the trigger on some flatirons as well, but similar issue. I don't want them in black or walnut and bourbon has just never appealed to me in anything yet. I don't really have the money to do an MTO. 

 

I didn't have a Bob's Chili in my collection yet, so I got that in these shoes. It's the only one I have in that color, so I like them for that reason.

Help me sort through my thoughts as I look to spend my October budget on the RDA sale:

 

I'm thinking about going with Warwick's in black. I love the smooth line of them, and I have really liked my Mora 2 and Franciscans (each in different colors). I don't have anything on the 201 last...I have always just bought 8.5D in everything (around 10 pair now) and dealt with the differences by wearing different socks. That was before I discovered this thread about sizing.

 

Has anyone adjusted their sizing specifically for the Warwick?

 

 

If I don't go with the above, I"m considering the Fifth Avenue for a Dainite sole...is the Dainite better/different than the V tread in winter?

 

Thanks Gentleman!

Finally got around to polishing the Bleeckers. Was careful but still took some burnishing off. Followed with a little bourbon on the toes and heels. Not too shabby.

@shoenoobie Personally I tried 65 bals in 6.5E, 7D, 7.5C, and 8B and they all sort of seemed to fit, even though I wear 7D 99% of the time. Call me crazy but with the rda sale I am debating whether to gamble on an 8B or 8.5A bal to see how it works out. Maybe a waste of money, maybe not though.

Ok, I've whittled my choice down to the tan McTavish ($157), the brown Kenilworth ($127), or the bourbon Ft. Collins ($117). 

 

What's the way to go here people?

I am loving my tan McTavish. Got them a few weeks ago during the last shoebank sale. They are my 1st pair of AE shoes.

I'm a huge fan of the plain toe derby. Incredibly versatile. So my vote goes to either Kenny or Collin. They're essentially the same shoe just on different lasts, so pick the one that fits you best (3 vs 5)

Cornwallis vs Park Ave 

 

For my first pair of oxfords? 

Park Aves look more formal but I'm 26 and am a real estate agent so I think I can get away with being a little more fashion forward. I really like how the Cornwallis looks but am thinking maybe I should get the Park Ave just to be safe. What do you guys think?
