I've also worked a little on paint showing where the ball of my feet feels like it is. Should it be at where the cap toe ends? The knuckle of my big toe is about where the cap toe line is.


I would suggest more than a half inch and less than an inch is good. Seems to me those shoes are a good fit although it would have been helpfull to see what they look like laced up, also bear in mind that while a half size up will not be much longer they will be roomier in the vamp. So unless those shoes are too tight across the vamp you are good to go. If they feel very tight across the vamp/instep then maybe a half size up would be in order.

I have an opportunity to pick these Mctavish up at a good price used. Are these creases typical of normal use? To me they look more pronounced than normal.

Not working for me either.

Perhaps a stupid question... Is EE a typical width for shoes in general and specifically AE shoes? I ask because while I do see it as an option for some shoes/sizes on the website, it seems like most places don't carry it and many don't talk about it. When I've looked on Amazon I see E and EEE width but rarely (if ever) EE. I ask because I think I'm in between E and EEE. When I got fitted at the AE store we first tried EEE and settled on E but he never brought out or suggested EE which is why I ask.

 

Thanks.

Definitely pronounced,  but I think that is a function of the type of leather, rather than abnormal wear.

Fabian, Those creases are normal. My pair show nearly the same creases and they are getting more prominent as I do a lot of movement in them.

Neither me.

 

I was logging on to use the Chat feature to inquire about the laces on my Kenilworths. They came with 30" laces that seem much too long when tied. Does anyone know the proper lace length for a 3 eyelit shoe?

Yes this creases are normal for the type of leather. Mine show that as well after a good deal of wearing. Fortunately I don't think it looks bad given that they're full brogue and there's a lot going on at the toe to distract from them.

What's the price? I'm not sure that I'd spend more than $50 on those, and that's if I REALLY needed a pair of shoes.

LONGBRANCH BOOTS

 

How has the calfskin Long Branch boots worn for you - as far as comfort right out of the box?  Did you need any break-in period before the comfort began?  Or did the Long Branch perform like the AE calfskin dress shoes - where no breakin is necessary?

 

DALTON BOOTS

 

For others who own the Daltons and have use them for outdoor use -  how have these worn for you on long walks (a few miles) on city or parkside walking trails (not forest hiking trails).  Although I anticipate they are extremely comfortable for indoor use, how comfortable have they been for long walks - like a few miles?  

 

And although they have that very nice leather sole, how have the soles worn for you?

 

Thanks for all of your help,


David

+1. I have the McTavish in dark brown (struggled between getting the dark brown or the black. I love the stitching on the black) and after two days of wear I had creases; more so than any other of my shoes from AE.

Again, agreeing with above, because of the type of leather and the fact that it's a more casual shoe anyway, it doesn't really take away from the look. I'd definitely pick them up if you can get them at a good price in your size.

Regent Streets in Chili arrived over the weekend. Today is their maiden voyage, they look great in natural sun light.

I don't even want to pay $345 for the fifth ave, but i can't turn down a great deal. when does the rutledge go on sale. :)

I don't think that you'll find them for that price anywhere other than Ebay (heavily used, unusual sizes). I've only seen the seconds on sale once. I picked up a pair. They were a relatively new shoe, so they looked like firsts. From what I've seen, the older models are more hit or miss because people have been trying them on for longer.

I have the Long Branch in gray.  I had to go up a width, but they fit great right out of the box.  I also have the Dalton in unlined walnut shell and chocolate lined calf.  All three are very comfortable.
