Hi everyone, quick question, how far into the toe box should the toes go?
trying to get a good fit on the 5 last is giving me fits, sent back a pair that i ordered in my usual size but felt it was too long, now I'm second guessing myself.
I'd go and get measured but the nearest brick and mortar is far :-(
I spoke to AE Customer Service today about a similar question, where the Strand comes in a 5 Last and my great looking Sanfords came in a 7 Last - even though the two styles look exactly the same! Because the Sanford was discontinued (for now), I did not want to order the 5 Last out of fear it would be too long!
And yes . . . me too . . . for I am no longer in the big city since we moved to Western Montana a few years ago - so ordering from AE for the right size and fit and look may take me 3 returns! But guess what! AE encourages us folks to keep ordering until it gets right! Love that service.
Whatever style you're after, call them and ask what they suggest for the next size. For me in the Sanford, I found that my 11.5 D was a better fit in a 11-EEE with a 7 Last. (Reminds me of knowing my sleep number and the price of gasoline)
