Sadly this is what I was expecting to hear. I was also thinking it in the back of my mind. That's why I haven't worn them yet. The only crappy part is that I live in Canada, so it will cost me $40ish to return the shoes, followed by $50 to ship out a replacement. I'll call them tomorrow and see what we can have arranged. Thanks for the insight guys

2 for 500$ still fairly good (thats almost what it ends up coming to..)

There's no duty as they are made in the USA and I've only been hit with taxes once (Shoebank shipments were always marked at lower values whereas Jeffersonville listed the full value).

$250 to Canadian call it $260
$260+13% HST= $293.80
Add $45 shipping from Jville, call it $47 CDN = $340.80

The other week I needed a size changed and they offered free shipping to me if I paid to ship the small ones back. Cost me $26 from Toronto to Jeffersonville.

If this is of any help, Superfeet Black insoles may work for dress shoes/boots. I tried them one on the shoes which similarly had a wide fit and the fit became acceptable, but still not comfortable enough. I ended up returning both shoes and insoles. You might have better luck with the boots though--give it a shot.

I was making an attempt at being funny to ridicule how getting decent things in Canada is much more expensive, but yes that pricing is correct.

I might try that, i'll see what Jville says when I give them a call.

Good to know, maybe this will be the case for me. If so, just another case of great customer service from AE.

 

 

Also, does anyone here find that the shell version of a shoe fits bigger than the calf version? the dalton in 12D in calf for me was snug at first, and has now stretched to be the perfect fit. But the shell dalton in 12E was way way way bigger. Even with wool socks, it wasn't snug. Seems like it shouldnt has increased in girth so much with only one size up in width.

What's the policy on sizing for Elgins? Are you guys sticking with the same size as your strands and other 5 last shoes?

I'm a 10D in the Strand and McAllister and others and my Elgin in a 9.5D fits me the same.

Would 0.5 size up from 5 and 1 last be too big in MacNeil?

I guess the double butyl sole with a flat welt would be what's on the Dalton boot....

 

I think the LW needs a split reverse.

Yeah, from looking around I think it does need the split reverse.  Now I just need to decide between a double butyl sole and a single butyl.....I think the single will make it look less bulky, but we'll see.

A few quick i-pics:

 

Thanks to your pics I totally just impulse-bought a pair of those. Thanks, SF.

I wear size 9D for most 5-lasted shoes and my Elgins in 8.5D fits the same. I did try size 9D at the store when I bought my Elgins and I think those would have worked as well if I wore thicker socks or tied the laces tighter. But 8.5D definitely was the better fit.

Well, SF is dangerous like that, LOL! But at least in this case you're not out a ton of money and I think you'll be happy with it as long as it fits well.

Would be for me. I am the same size in 1, 5, and 7.

I feel like all of my shell shoes feel looser than their calf counterparts.

That's assuming that everyone that wants to do an MTO is looking at shell.

They look nice and awfully tempting to me now.
