post #33136 of 53443

Got my McTavsish's today.  They seem to slip in the heel...i went with 11D, which is what I have in Long Branch, Fifth Ave, Strand.  Should I try another size or just deal with the heel slippage?

The slippage might reduce or go away once the soles break in...

That is kinda tough to say. If you wear them too much you won't be able to return them. Anyway to test fit another size?

Wear them indoors until you are certain.  They should take them back as long as they haven't been worn outdoors.  Also, many report sizing down half a size in Rough Collection shoes, so you may need to as well.

excellent!  I love how the color seems to adapt with the clothes you wear! It looks like you have three different colored shoes... very nice!

Thanks.  I'll wear them indoors for a bit.

I would not keep anything with heel slippage. If it is just a tiny bit, then it may go away, but if it is noticeable then try another size. I have tried shoes with heel slippage to no success. AE is also a lighter shoe compared to other brands and no heel slippage should be present. Try a 10.5D and 10.5E.

My two criterion for shoe fit are:

1. My forefoot is not uncomfortable
2. No heel slippage

I think most people size down half in length and sometimes have to go up a size in width. I happen to have the same size for my 5-65 dress shoes and my McTavishes, but I had to use a tongue pad to fill the McTavishes.

The Strand and Fifth Ave in 11D fit well and are snug to my foot.  The Long Branch in 11D have room in the toes, but fit well.  These McTavish fit well in the foot, but there is definitely slipping in the heel.

If it is "definite" slipping, then I'd save myself the trouble and go down a half size.

I emailed Allison to ask if AE could remake the Wolverine 1000 Mile 744 Ltd as a MTO. She informed me that Wolverine owns the pattern and used their own last, so she can't do it. She did say that the Promontory Point is the closest. I checked the AE website and it doesn't say what last it's on. I would guess the 1-last. Anyone know for sure?

No, it's made on a new last numbered "B34."

I asked the same question a while ago and Allison told me--quite expectedly--that they can not replicate the 744LTD due to the design and the last being proprietary to Wolverine. Replicating this boot would thus be a copyright infringement. 

 

This said though. 744 is on sale until tomorrow at the Neiman Marcus. It's 25% off + an additional 10% if you subscribe for their emails.
