If I want to go up 1/2 size in length from 9.5EEE, should I go with 10E or 10EE?

Thanks

Okay so I looked them over in more detail and the walnut and dark chocolate calf shoes are definitely good to go. The Natty CXL, on the other hand, I'm more iffy on but let me know what you guys think (the issues aren't as bad as Kahuna's).

Uneven lace area on the left shoe

 

Of the typical 2nds flaws, this one bothers me the most. I tried one of Ian's lacing methods on one shoe of a pair of Rapid Cities, and it straightened them out pretty well: http://www.fieggen.com/shoelace/sawtoothlacing.htm

 

Depending on how close the facings are when you lace them up (and if you're willing to bar lace them), it might be worth a shot.

Was wondering if anyone here has the AE Banchory grey wingtips advertised here...

http://www.footwearonlinemall.com/mens-allen-edmonds-banchory-grey-leather-p-22338/

 

I found a pair on clearance at a Nordstrom rack for $129.  I tried them on and was amazed at how comfortable they are (almost felt like they were unlined suede).  Wanted to snag them, but wasn't sure what I would wear them with??  I thought sockless as a summer shoe (they are closer to dirty white than grey).  I wear mostly business casual (i.e. khaki, navy chinos, some seersucker, not much denim, and wool greys).  Will this shoe find a niche in my wardrobe?

 

If you own this shoe, what do you pair with it?  Any pics in the wild?  Much thanks in advance!

You can wear the grey Banchory in situations where you would otherwise wear a pair of white canvas sneakers.

New site (2 weeks old) + broken English + pictures lifted directly from AE's website + no way to contact them except through email?

 

I wouldn't touch it with someone else's ten-foot pole.

I actually found the shoe at a local B&M Nordstrom Rack.  I shouldn't have posted that link.  I only meant to use it as a reference for the pic (it was the first hit in my google search).  My intention was to acquire feedback on how useful the shoes are.  I appreciate you both looking out for me and a questionable-looking website!

That's about what I thought.  Was hoping for a little more versatility. Thanks!

I have them and they are amazingly comfy...with the v tread I used them a lot this year. I wear them a ton with navy, black, dark gray, casual pants. I have no business situations that require any sort conservative matching. I also don't do any rules with pants lighter or darker than shoes. I think they would look fine with jeans and as you stated the comfort factor will have you looking to wear these every weekend if they are no good for work.

I also got the from the rack at similar price. I did spray them with protector so they have been out in all types of wether and still look great

Thanks Kahuna.  They are so very comfortable that I may have to find some use with them.  With that price, I think it is worth a try.  Cheers...
