Yes, absolutely. And by quite a bit too.

Was wondering how I could transform the kind of brand-new-Dark-Burnished Brown into a more... nicer "browner" color. Would really like to lighten them up a bit. They're so dark right now. 

I used AE's saddle brown polish to lighten up a pair of Delrays. Really like the result.

yup. It's because of the leather used

Good call, OptoDoc. That would be a winner!

IMO shoes built on an elongated last look best on men with a similar physique. I'm too barrel chested and need shoes that make my feet look smaller than they are.

They did a great job on those for you. Wheeling pretty much takes every shoe to newer heights.

VERY DISAPPOINTED with the customer service with Allen edmonds....Placed an order for 2 shoes and 2 size medium shoe trees..

two weeks later, received the shoe and only one Shoe tree...contacted them and they sent me another one for their mistake. A week later, I received a size SMALL shoe tree and there was only one inside...last I remember they do sell shoes in pairs right....complete mess...

 

Very disappointed with their service and last time I will ever order from Allen Edmonds via phone or online..

No it's not. The fact that you ran to the internet to complain says it all, lol...

I wear 7.5EE in Strand and McAllister. I have an Elgin (similar in fit to McTavish) in 7.5E and they are big. The width is actually okay going down one but the shoes slip quite a bit. If I compare the length of the 7.5E Elgin to the 7.5EE McAllister, the Elgin is noticeably longer. I'm thinking 7EE would be a good size for me so perhaps going half size down and same width would work for you. I'm sure everyone's experience may vary slightly.

Go 1/2 size down from your usual 5 last size, and keep the same width. I wear 9E in McTavishes and Neumoks and 9.5E in calf Strands and Park/Fifth Avenues.

I agree with the above posts, a half size down in the same width.
