Compared to a Barrie last shoe:


Not sure what it is about the Jodox, I just really like it. It was the first 'real' dress shoe I ever picked out & paid for myself, to be worn at my first 'real' post-college job. To be sure it's not for everyone. I just wish AE would follow through and start making it again for those of us who like it - preferably in shell!

I emailed tifosi's contact at AE regarding an MTO (possibly shell) and/or to see if they plan to start producing the Jodox again. I'll let you know what I hear.

Here's a couple more pics (sorry - all iPhone shots):



Compared to an Alden Barrie last PTB:

Here is the response I got concerning the Portland boot.

"Thank you for your email earlier today. The Portland boot will be available in the US. There are some adjustments made to to the last and then later this fall season it will be available for order.
A specific date is currently not available. Thank you for your patience as well as your interest in Allen Edmonds footwear."

Really considering pulling the trigger on a pair of Dalton, I am only a little worried because Im not sure what size to get. Some people said that the 1 last was a little narrower than the 5 last and to order 1 width higher (D to E), some say to stick to the same size. Is there more of a consensus when it comes to this ? Did anyone get the Daltons in the same size as their other 5 last shoes ?

Its hard to believe o picked these up for $129 from the Jville outlet. THANKS AGAIN to the OP who mentioned they were selling them for that price. The only blemish I noticed was a small scuff at the heel!

 

Lets see them! and the scuff.

I wear an 11.5D on the 5 but was fitted 11.5E on the Dalton last.

I got them in the same size BUT since they are boots I also usually wear them with thicker socks.

I know some on this thread get the same size in the 5-last Strands as the 1-last Daltons.  I personally sized 1/2 size up for the Daltons (same width).  That works pretty well for me.  I maybe could have gone up a width in the Strands.  This is probably confusing to you considering the other input you have had.  I went 7.5D Strands and 8D in the Daltons and maybe I could have gone with 7.5E Strands.

 

I think I would start with one of two choices for the Daltons if I were you:  1) Go up 1/2 size and stick with D width.  2) Stay the same size and go to an E width.

 

Good luck.

I have not found that to be the case at all. I wear EE in the 5 last and E in the 1 last.

Thanks for the advice, the answer from the AE store was actually that the 1 last was wider than the 5 which confused me a little.
 

and then comes the opposite answer from subutai, im sad now.

 

edit : subutai's answer does confirm the AE salesman's affirmation but is the opposite of  what people have been saying before.

I, personally, wear the same size in the 5 last and the 1 last.
Actually his answer confirms AE's answer. If he takes a EE in 5 and E in 1, that means the 1 last is wider.

I already buffed out the scuff...here they are...



I have some renomat on the way from http://ashineandco.com and I can't tell you how awesome they've been. Cheapest Saphir prices and shipping half the amount of the other guys...

That renomat will remove the extra polish AE seems to throw on these!
