Nice merlot McA's. They look like they fit well. A lot of guys' shoes look like they could be used for a guitar solo because of how they fit across the strings.

I kind of regret getting the AE versions of the Strand & McAllister...

Since we seem to wear the same size, did you go with the same in your BB Fifth Ave (different insole) as AE Strand and McAllister?

Yes. 7.5 E in Strand & McAllister, 7.5 E in BB Fifth Ave. BB's feel way more comfortable though.

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.

 

How do they size compared to other AEs you have? I own various pairs of AE shoes and compared to my Patriots, I find that the patriots are extremely tight on the instep. I am thinking about returning for a new size… anyone have tips on how to get more room on the instep while maintaining a proper fit?

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.
