The thing is size 7 is pretty much the smallest size I can go. There's little to no space between my heel and the heel of the shoe when I push my foot all the way in. I'm going to try 7E next, if that doesn't work out, EE, or would you recommend me going straight for the EE?

Keep an open mind on going down a half size in length when you go up in width.  May not work for you, but that is the normal formula for many, so do not automatically dismiss it.  Try on a 7E and and a 6.5E and see how they fit.

Good morning gentlemen,
I just wanted to follow up on my previous post.
I contacted the Allen Edmonds outlet in Italy and they di carry the same lines. The only difference is price, which is way above what they are sold here in North America. Ergo "buying America made shoes in Europe=not a good idea".
I've been wanting to buy a split toe/apron tie for a while now to round off my collection and I seriously can't seem to decide what to get. Just to keep it in the AE family, there are Delrays and Lasalles that are calling my name from Scilla and the Parkways that are singing to me from Cariddi..
On top of that the Alden's are leading the charge of the barbarians lines..
In essence I really don't know which direction I have to take! All I know is that it will be a brown shoe and I will be wearing it casually (weekends, jeans, casual Fridays with khakis).
Would you have any suggestion?
Thank you all,
Max

Where are you in Italy? I might be able to help you get some AE shoes here. I'm in Naples.

I have the combo tap sole on Cronmok Boots, and on McAllisters from the anniversary sale.  They really are the best compromise between leather and rubber.  They are much more comfortable than rubber because of the leather construction (oaked sole on the McAllister).  They still feel like leather soles.

Does anyone know what the available edge trim options are for MTO? I sent an email last week to Paul to start the process and am waiting to hear back but figured some here may know as well.

I got my samples coming tomorrow and will be ordering same day. I will ask all the options for edge trim I am hoping for antique.

Perfect. Please let me know; antique is what I am hoping for as well. How long did it take for you to get your samples?

Naples! Homeland of Pulcinella, pizza, caffè and sartorial bespoke! Plus another 3000+ years of history in between..

I split my time 50/50 between Italy and North America for work, I believe purchasing AE in NA is more convenient based on the email I received from the outlet in Serravalle with prices, but thank you VERY much for your offer!

It's a effin' madhouse- but Naples does have it's advantages! 

 

get my AEs shipped to the US base I am stationed at and I would have been glad to offer to help you out- but since you are able to get them in the US than you wont be needing me! 

 

Sorry for the 5 posts- my iPad was not playing nice.

What exactly does the AE antique edge trim look like? Are there any current production AE shoes with the antique trim? I'm thinking something along the lines of what's on the brown Jefferson or Rutledge, or is it lighter than that?
