The fit is really good on them, it's an 8.5D and an 8D was far too narrow. It's possible the best fit may be an 8E in this boot but by no means does the fit not work and with these being Cappuccino Cordovan, having them remade is not an option at all at this point.

Yeah it's an 8.5D and I have heard people say that exact statement about the Bayfield in smaller sizes.

After the way our Vancouver Canucks have tanked this season, I've decided its time to bring out the football Neumoks.

Anyone else a Verona fan? Picking up a new pair tomorrow to replace an old pair. Damn good loafers...

I have also been itching for a cordovan penny loafers as well, might give the patriot a try. Does the half sock liner in that model make a difference in comfort?

I had a pair of shoes (non-AE) that were flexing in that area and pushing down on the toes, I got rid of them, after a day of walking around it felt like my toes were in a vice with every step, but it was pretty extreme compared to yours.

 

Bayfields in 15D look the same way, makes me not want to wear them until I get skinnier jeans to go with them.

My cobbler is quite the photographer, and decided to snap some shots while they were in her shop. This makes them look too nice to wear!

Yeah mine are nowhere near that, it's more of that I can just notice the leather is there across my toe rather than actually hurting or pinching in any way when it flexes.

Fantastic photo indeed, the leather reminds me of sting ray

A few days ago, wore my AE Ritz's, which are a seldom seen shoe in this thread......

post #40479 of 47206

I understand that leather will indeed crease some, but today is only the 4th time I've worn them and am beginning to see these creases.  Am I over thinking it, or is there something I should be doing to prevent this from happening.  These are JAB AE Nathans 2nds btw.

 

EDIT: I use shoe trees after every wear.

How do yous think black dalton's with jeans looks? I need a pair of black dress shoes, cus I don't have any, and would rather spend the money on something I'll use casually, rather than get boring ol' black cap toe oxfords. Thanks.

Very normal, just keep the vamp moisturized properly to prevent cracking in the long run. I use Lexol conditioner on the vamp of my McAllisters periodically along with AE cream polish.

Was kinda wondering the same thing. Thinking about picking up a cheap set of black bayfields. Just having a hard time picturing it.

I keep seeing rumors of the 2/250 sale from the Shoe Bank. I THINK that deal was also good for 1/125 in the past. Brooks Brothers is reportedly having their 30% off corporate discount sale on March 20 and I think they have a AE made version of a strand if I'm not mistaken.

I'm looking to purchase a pair of AEs to more complete my collection.  I already have black McAllisters, walnut Strands, and bourbon Mora 2.0s.  I'm thinking either a merlot/burgandy or a darker shade of brown like dark brown burnish.  I wear jeans with a blazer more often than slacks.  Which color would you guys recommend?  Also, would $272 be a good price on a pair of merlot McAllisters NIB?

I'd go burgundy/merlot. AE's merlot is an excellent shade and yes on the McAllisters.
