I don't know if I should thank or curse you for luring me into shell with those nice shiny 744s. I've since acquired a few more pairs, including walnut shell Dalton's incoming. They should be done soon in a week or two.

Your welcome. And I'm sorry. And know EXACTLY how you feel.... smile.gif

My brown shell Patriots fit snug but pretty much perfectly so I ordered the burgundy also. Much to my surprise they are about a quarter size larger. My right foot is just a bit smaller than my left which is common and when the heel hit the ground they flared badly, and when they closed they would push air out. Great, now a loafer with bowing issues! Several AE SA have said minor bowing like that is caused by lack of foot volume but I already wear superfeet insoles. I purchased a pair of thin odor eaters and using only the right one cut it so it is only about long as the superfeet inserts. The bowing and gush of air went away. Might be worth a try. 

 

If it is major bowing you can measure it by comparing the right shoe against the throat opening in the left. It is too large there is nothing you can do except send them back to QA to have them check it and replace it if it is out of specs.

Gents, your opinions please. 4 last vs. 5 last- If I'm a 12E in the 4, should I go 12 EEE in the 5?

I found EEE is too much. I wear EE in the 5 last and E in most everything else

I'm trying to buy a pair of Amoks from the Brookfield location but need some help. Tan and olive colors are easy to find, but does anyone have pictures of the Amoks in "mocha" or "brogue"?

I've seen other Allen Edmonds shoes in brogue and they looked like the current snuff suede. The SA said that they are a "cinnamon color". She also told me that mocha is the color of mocha coffee. Unfortunately these descriptions don't really help me. Are one of these code words for the bitter chocolate color? I'm lost.

I don't know, but now I'm hungry.

Need your advice, purchased these from J'Ville outlet as seconds. Wore them once and just noticed the heel is separating. Structural defect? Return them?

Any pics if the old burgundy shell finish versus the new one? I was unsuccessfulyself using the search function yesterday.

Looking for my for my first pair of shell. I was originally thinking brown Patriots, but will also consider Burgundy.

Also considering Cambridge now, but I'm not sure since I have walnut McAllisters and could also just get them burgundy calf.

Decisions decisions....

Are you sure it's separating?  It looks like an uneven cut.

Here are the shark Sheltons!  Also, here are my bone/walnut Summit Avenues, along with the Boca Ratons I bought.
