post #36481 of 52412

Hey guys, super quick question.

I have daltons in an 8.5E and they're a hair more wide than I'd like, but fit fine if I play with the lacing. I'm thinking of picking up a pair of Park Ave's in 8.5 D, will that be fine? I was previously fit in an 8E PA, but don't know if there's much difference between the 8E and 8.5D. Additionally, almost all my other dress shoes are an 8.5D with a couple that are 9D's and still fit fine. The only thing that hasn't fit me is a shoe that's a 9D but fits slightly big and an 8.5C. Those were mistakes! Heh.

Hi all,

 

with AE.com's measurement, I get 

- length: 8 right on

- width: W7 right on

 

I've tried Lasalle 8D and thought that

- length: perfect fit

- width: tight and starts hurting the pinky side of my feet longer I wear, I started feeling sore & pain.

 

I'm thinking of ordering *Parkway* size 8D, but based on the allenedmonds.com,

parkway runs wider than normal AE shoes where Lasalle runs either *true size* or *narrow*

Would you say I would feel comfortable in 8D ? or should I order 8E?

 

It is unfortunate that any local store in Toronto do not carry different width length. They only carry normal D.

 

Can any of you give me some feedback ?

 

Thanks,

I'm looking to do one in a navy suede :slayer:

Welcome, James. Good choices with the Daltons and Cliftons.

 

I'm in Austin, too. Hope "cedar fever" isn't affecting you as much as it is me.

Sounds like Horween's Chromexcel or Essex, to me. Hopefully someone can confirm/deny from your pictures.

Ready for whatever Mother Nature throws today. Grey Long Branch needed some attention... Should I HDLP these? Love the color, don't really want themto darken.

That color is awesome - a pair of these is in fact en route to me right now (firsts for $159 - thank you, Vincenzo at the Shoe Bank!) and seeing yours is making me totally stoked about mine.  I'm interested in care suggestions as well.

Looking good.

The Canadian guy asking about duties/taxes for AE shoes shipped from the US - while you may not have to pay duties, you might end up having to pay taxes. They're two different things as far as I understand.

Thanks! This cedar is killing me! I've never had allergies / been allergic to anything I'm my life. I've only been in Austin for about a year and this is a first for me

Austin is killer for allergies. I grew up there and never had issues untill I moved back after college.

this forum needs some livening up  ...:sly: Which brings me to my inquiry that I posted last Friday regarding the number of "second" quality shoes that AE produces. Why are there so many? Is it really that many or does this forum skew my perspective on the number of second quality shoes? Why are issues with stitching, pinking, and medallion alignment oftentimes not noticed by quality control and sent out as first quality shoes? Is it because those making the shoes aren't true professionally trained craftsmen? Is it because of the speed at which they are required to work?

 

Please understand, these questions are in no way a knock on Allen Edmonds. I do not have any sort of bone to pick with Allen Edmonds, the only pair of AE shoes I own has no quality issues whatsoever. I have ordered my second pair and am waiting for them to show up at my doorstep. I also know that AE is more than willing to work with you if your alleged first quality shoes have these issues, or even issues that are far less concerning. I'm just curious to hear what you all happen to know/think about the subject... :stirpot:
