Thanks lostron. So if I wanted to take Mr. Grangaard up on his MTO offer and got a cappuccino shell version of the McAllister, sounds like this would end up the same as a cappuccino shell Cambridge.
Related to Paul's generous offer, does anyone know how "custom" you can go? Would it be possible to get a MacNeil or other LWB on the 5 last?
I just asked about having the MacNeil made on the 5 last as I love the 5 last and have no idea how the 7 will end up fitting me. She said they used to do that and played around with it for awhile however no longer do. The results were just too unpredictable so they stopped doing it. Yes you can have your cappuccino shell McAllsisters built just like the Cambridge if desired with double oak soles, which is what I elected to do.
Personally I believe in cleaning the shoe with conditioner\cleaner before applying any product on top of them either cream or wax. Sometimes just the conditioner\cleaner will give good enough results that I skip the polish or cream. But in any event feel applying both is not overkill as long as you don't apply too much, or too often.
The sun came out, so I took a new group picture of the shell. This encompasses all colors currently available from AE. From left to right:
Black Park Avenue, New Burgundy MacNeil, Old Burgundy Leeds, Dark Brown Dundee (we now know that brown and dark brown are the same!), Brown Strand, Cappuccino McAllister, Walnut Dalton.
That is some beautiful shell porn!
Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
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.
Looks pretty normal to me. The owner may not have used shoe trees when these were not being worn.
Allison is a shrewd saleswoman with regard to us SF folks. So, what are the odds you come back for a second pair in cappucino within the year? Because no matter how much you love your new Walnut shell Daltons, you're alwasy going to get that little pang of regret every time you see a picture of someone else's in cappucino. Mark my words.
ScottyB said he got new firsts for $180 direct from AE, which sounds fantastic cause when I called, seconds were $230 ish. Regardless, I think $105 is a deal. Those shoes look basically new (especially looking at the soles) and you got them for the same price as a DSW Cole Haan, Rockport, Bostonian, etc
If they fit, I'd be happy with the purchase if I were you.

First Post! Been reading everyone's post for a while now, great community.
Just received my Bourbon McAllisters this morning! Took advantage of their 91st anniversary sale.
Size is 7E. Tried on 7.5D and 7D at a local shop, but both were tight. 7.5 also had too much room lengthwise (like an inch). 7's were good in length but too tight.
I measured my foot using AE's sizechart and according to that I was 7E, so I ordered that after consulting with their website's "live chat" personnel.
For those who'd like to know. Every step in size is a 1/16" increase in width. Every step in width is 3/16".
Width wise, the 7E feels great but judging the lace gap, I could probably go to an EE but it may be too loose after it breaks in so I think I will keep these.
The ball of your foot should fit into the widest part of the shoe, since it is the widest part of your foot. The captoe line has nothing to do with gauging fit, as it is purely decoration and length of the captoe varies between styles and manufacterers. From your red mark on the photo, it looks like you are about right, but only you (or a trained shoe fitting associate) can feel where the widest part of your foot is in relation to the widest part of the shoe. It isn't hard to do though, and you should be able to feel it without going back to a shop. If you can't tell based on how your foot feels in the shoe, try squeezing the shoe along the widest part and see if you are also squeezing the widest part of your foot.
Don't place too much emphasis on where your toes end. As long as your toes aren't squeezing together or hitting anything, you should be fine. Shoe fit is based on the ball of the foot to the heel. That's why people are able to wear shoes with those with long pointy toes. For what it's worth, the area that you are saying your big toe hits is a perfectly normal location.
If the ball of my foot is on the right location, should I go for a 7E instead of dropping to a 6.5E? It also seems a bit cramp around my pinky toe area.
