In case you missed my prior posts, I have been wearing 11.5D in 5-last oxfords. After being fitted this weekend I'm more like an 11D or 10.5E in those shoes. The Patriots are 10EEE! The 10.5E I originally came home with were indeed too tight. The EEE's are very comfortable.

Wow! I too am an 11.5D in the 5 last (Nuemoks). I will have to go into a local AE with my current pair of Patriots and see if I can get them switched out for the proper size. I will be blown away if I too am a 10EEE, that would be crazy. Fingers Crossed.

If these prove to be versatile for me I may just go ahead and order the shell Patriots down the road anyway.

They're just a tad loose without socks. I may try some no-show loafer socks to see how I like that.



I also have to give the best recommendation possible to the staff at the Philadelphia Allen Edmonds store. Great service and very patient with me. Now that we have out first local AE store in the region, I suspect my wallet will be crying uncle.

Have you checked out the Sherman Brothers stores?  Good guys!

Thanks, but they won't ship to Canada due to "low inventory". I'm not believing that one.

Any opinions on driving mocs? I want a casual loafer to wear with shorts. Been looking at the highway 1, boulder, el dorado, etc. any opinions on fit, style, durability?
