I will pm you tomorrow. I am in bed and comfy... :-)

I assumed an 8.5D simply wouldn't work. Again, they haven't arrived yet, but it's possible I'll have something that works well for you. I'll certainly get back to you.

Yeah, these are tough to size. I believe the D widths won't work for anyone with regular width feet. However, the EEE widths all have some serious heel slippage, though I think that's acceptable in a slipper. The 8.5EEE fit okay, but they're a tad tight, possibly from overly thick sheerling. The 9EEE is arguably a better fit for me, though this particular pair has more sheerling in the right vs. the left which makes the fit a bit off, and the stitching/finishing is a little sloppy. I'm trying to decide between the 8.5EEE and the 9EEE but I'm just not sure yet.

Fit is perfect! On the 5 last I'm an E. But on the 1 last I stayed true to the length but went down a width (D) based on how my MTO Dundees fit.

Anyone have fit pics of daltons with jeans? I would primarily be wearing them casually...

Hey Teal, Mike should be able to tell you more, but in the meantime I'll say that I don't think it's related to Independence lining. My stock shell cordovan Daltons had the same soft toe. Unfortunately I've read that it can lead to some odd creasing.

Ps - how are you liking the McAllisters? Also I know I owe you a pm!

Great looking makeup!  The color looks significantly darker than my Cappuccino Macallisters.  I like that shade a lot!

What is the edge and welt color on these?  Love the contrast.

Mine is supposed to be delivered this week.  Very excited J-ville was able to make this happen.  I prefer my AE shell belts to the BB and Alden (which have been discontinued) offerings.
