They are "repairable" theoretically in that a cobbler could try to glue the shitty plasticated sole back onto the shitty plasticated leather, but let's not continue with this, eh?

 

Check out those links, and the links to which they link, and the linked links' monks.  That way happiness lies.

A crosspost from the quick questions thread - figured you guys might have more expertise:

I just purchased some unstructured 10.5 AEs online. Previously, I had bought some Gravati shoes which were 10.5 US, which converts from my normal size of 9.5 UK and fits pretty well. However, AE lists on their site a 9.5 - 10 UK-US conversion. Any thoughts?

post #28458 of 47155

Check the width fittings too.  Personally I also take a 9.5 UK - usually.  Sometimes 10, very occasionally 9.  I also sometimes need a wider fitting, depending on the last.  I have one pair of AEs, in a size 10E.  They are most comfortable.  I have four more on the way.

 

A 10.5D might fit me (seemed OK when I tried another US maker), but theoretically then so would a 11C or even 11.5D.  I tried on some Corthays the other day in a US 11 - fine.  The thing is, though, I would advise against going up in length and narrower in width, because it would mean the toes are not fully in the toe box.  This can mean the toe box chops your toes and the creasing on the vamp will be worse and in a strange place.

 

Anyway, this is all very simple: print off the AE size chart and see - it's on the site.  Worked out totally accurately for me.

Very nice to see the suede strands will be on sale in the upcoming promotion, I have been eyeing them for a while. Anybody else have any additional information? I hope there are some options on the 3 last!

Also, for anyone sized 9D in the 5 last. I just put 2 pairs (Walnut grain park ave and black fairfax wholecut) up on ebay with no reserve! Please see my sig for the classified listing with the ebay link within.

How does AE Walnut compare to Ravello?

Calf or shell?

Ravello generally has more red to in it. I can take a photo tomorrow if someone doesn't beat me to it.

I did something similar with a pair of Augustas

Out the box, AE walnut appears lighter to me. But, my AE Strands have darkened a bit and my ravello shell has lightened a bit, especially across the vamp. Now, their difference in color is slight and, I suspect, mostly due to the difference in the sheen of the different leathers.

I wear my AE walnut belt with either.
post #28468 of 47155

Im in between sizes but went ahead with the AE plunge. I bought a pair of Fifth Ave's in size 7.5D and Strands in size 8D.

 

The FAs are breaking in slowly but still very snug on the sides. The strands are still fitting, but I'm worried they'll loosen too much.

 

Any chance there is a slight size difference between the two even though they are on the same last? Should I size down to the 7.5 or stay on the 8?

The Morgan doesn't look as nice as it does online. Don't like the burnishing look.
