^Come on man, lace them up so we can see for real.

I don't think lacing them up would help, as that is really how close the "V" on the top could meet. That's why I'm asking if I should I go with a 9.5 EEE or go with a different last.

 

Thanks

I asked the same question a couple of days ago in this thread when I posted a picture of my 5-last fit, and I got several great responses. You might want to look back at those pictures and see what folks had to say. It's almost the exact same scenario, although not quite as exaggerated as in your picture. I ordered a pair of AE Hales to see how they fit. I suspect that they'll be a good bit more accommodating of my high instep.

I would give a 9.5EEE a try. If that doesn't fit well, try a blucher like the Kenilworth, Delray or Flatiron. These should provide more room for your instep.

Thanks for the info! Much more helpful than the post of the skinny guy with a weird mustache above your post.

Thanks for the advice! I'll definitely give a 9.5 EEE a try. And if it still doesn't fit right I'll go try some bluchers or a Boardroom from Jos A Bank, which is pretty much like a Park Ave. on the 7 last.

Would this be the Reston store, or is there a new manager at the Connecticut Ave store?

 

 

The last time I was at the store, the lady said she was the manager for both stores (DC & Reston).  She also said that Reston has a larger inventory.

Interesting. Good to know. I live in DC though, so the shop on Connecticut is much more convenient than slogging it out to Reston,

After seeing all the slushy ice in Chicago I think I am forced to put some tap soles on my Daltons. I think that's the least I can do.

Really? I don't know if I have been to the Conn St store in DC, but Reston is pretty small.

Was at Conn St store once 5 yr ago from out of town. Was looking for Mora (which they didn't have--no surprise at the time). I remember it being pretty small (the store, I mean).

I wouldn't bother with the EEE. Going up one size in width is worth 3/16" of an inch, hence two sizes in width are 3/8" of an inch.

Long Branch in nature...

Unfortunately lighting was bad, and the color is funny with the snow

They look stunning and remind me of Alden Alt Wien for Epaulet.

Has anyone compared the Frye James Lug Wingtip boot to the Long Branch?

Frye James Lug Wingtip:

Long Branch:

http://www.allenedmonds.com/aeonline/producti_SF6041_1_40000000001_-1

I prefer the Frye because it seems a little less bulky and perhaps more of a year-round boot where the Vibram sole on the Long Branch. However the Long Branch is more detailed and with similar price points, I am having a difficult time not adding to my AE collection. FWIW the little research that I've done on Frye seems to indicate a quality product. I've only handled their womens boots and have always come away impressed with the craftsmanship.
