Ive had a problem like that before and keeping the shoes with shoetrees for a week flattened out the high spot

They are running out in my size so just curious if anyone else has dealt with this.

Out of curiosity, why buy second McGregors at this point, when you can have firsts for $197? That's a steal, even spending $40 more.

Sometimes it's about availability.
For example, the McGregor is available in my size in three colors from the Shoebank. There are none in any color available as 1st quality.

My closeout Kirkwood seconds in the darker brown cxl arrived. No seconds markings. Boxed just like my pairs of firsts. Short of a tiny bit of rough leather on one toe, these might be the most flawless AEs I've ever received - first or seconds.

They don't have any firsts in my size so it's a no go. I tried the screwdriver and it didn't seem to budge. There are some others available and they said they look good so I might just exchange them and make it easy.

And you get bags. Unfortunate that they don't have your size.

Mint condition chilli Bradleys that I bought off eBay for $80. I think they have literally been worn twice.

They look great...one of my few regrets, did not expect the Bradley to diminish to shell only.  Enjoy!

Walnut Madison Parks, these will be my workhorses I'm pretty sure. I went against logic and bought 3 pairs of walnut AEs for my first three. Have black PAs and Oxblood Daltons coming in today. I need a brown pair for #6. Opinions on Bourbon vs Brown Vernons? I need a darker brown although I'm not sure I want another formal shoe (work doesn't require it). Also curious about thoughts on the fit on the McGregors (thinner fit?).

How do the Madison Parks fit vs. 65 last?  I've thought about returning my McGregor seconds and getting a 1st Madison Park in Chili since they're on sale at Nordstroms right now.

Should be able to tell you today. 10D Mcallister is all I've tried on so far in the 65 last and it was tighter than I'd like. The PA seconds I ordered were in a 10.5D, so we will see. The Madison Parks in a 10.5D give about a 1/4 an inch of play which is just right for me with the laces tight. They are still in their break in period but I imagine I'll be wearing these 2-3 times per week unless I get a pair of walnut clearance Rogues in 10D. The 201 last is my favorite so far, sized down by 1/2.

Does anyone know what last the Madison Park is on? I can't find that information anywhere.
