I'm planning on buying a pair of monkstrap style AE shoes. As my feet have high instep, which one has a roomier vamp -- Warwick or Mora 2.0?
I have a really high instep also - I never tried the Warwick but would agree with harlequin based on the difference between the 201 & 108 alone.
Not sure about what others you have looked at, but the Mora was way too roomy on me, plus it was passable but definitely not optimal in terms of instep. The Franciscan fit way better, but the Norwich stole the show in terms of a good fit.
I'm considering the Freiburg as well. Not sure which color I'd want though. I have a Dundee 2 in brown burnished and a Gobi in tan saddle.
Do you know how the 201 last would fit compared to the 511?
Hmm, so you'd say the 201 is a hair bigger than the 511? I might have a chance then. My Dundee 2s are 13B and I wouldn't want them any more snug, and there's no 14A Freiburg.
Which color would go better with khakis?
Glad you got them! They look great. Can't remember if I told you this or not, but those *should* be on the 511 last. That's what got confirmed at least. Either way, enjoy!
Yeah that looked too rounded to be the B34 but I thought it was the angle -
Thanks @Garland, no, I requested 511 but you never confirmed you could make them in 511 last. These Normadys have more volume than any other 511 lasted item I have, would likely choose a 15c if I were in a store trying them on. (And I have nothing b34 lasted, so assumed the expansive volume was predictable in a b34)
Unlined Kudu is incredibly soft/pliable so cranking laces tight works well, as does usual lacing to the top instead of their suggested ankle wrap. I'll use an orthotic from a 511g boot to fill volume and they will be fine.
Most of the new items are not available in 15 despite the 201 last offering 15 on other models. I have a hard time rationalizing buying anything new anyway, but hate seeing the options limited this way.
