Me too.  Would have had them yesterday, but UPS wanted money for some reason.

Wore them for a couple hours at work this afternoon.  Fit great - love them!

2 days later he's sick

2 days after, he's hospitalized...ebola virus

they trace ebola virus to homeless man who frequents the sidewalks he's walks on

 

 

I think you should throw them out or sale them at a deep discount.   What size do you wear?

Similar concern with sizing, but an AE store is an hour away, and I figured with the free shipping to and fro, what the hell?

Indeed. Order a pair or two, try them on, and send the ones that don't fit back. From AE's perspective the return shipping is small price to pay for a happy customer who now knows his size.

How does the 7.5D fit in the toe box?  7E will probably be too big.  You can try a 7.5C or an 8C.  Or you can keep the 7.5D and put in a tongue pad.  You'd be amazed at the difference.

I ordered a 7.5D and I think that a 7D would be too tight on the sides.

Did you try a 7D? It might be fine. If you go to a 7E, the heel might be too wide. If I go from my usual 9.5D to a 9E, the heel is way too wide.

Please post if you end up returning them to AE. That way I can avoid buying Strand seconds for 1-3 years sneaky2.gif. Color?

I just got chills. There are many questions I won't ask.
Since you have already cleaned the soles you may be in need of a ritual to purify both soles and mind. For starters, think of it as a happy little accident.
1) Take a rag with 10% bleach and 90% water. slowly wipe the bleachy rag over soles, allowing the soles to absorb some of the purifying nectar, thusly killing any remaining offensive microbes.
2) Place shoes on their sides facing the sun for 30 minutes to dry, allowing the purifying rays of the sun to further cleanse the soles.
3) Think clean thoughts while doing both procedures.
4) Put on a nice outfit and your newly cleaned Strands and go for a walk. Wherever you see green grass, playfully trod upon it and let natures green glory fragrance the soles.
5) In doing so, be careful of green grass areas where others have playfully trodden before you.
6) Congratulate yourself on sterilizing your shoes and giving yourself a fresh new experience in them.

Peace be unto you and wear your shoes in good health. smile.gif
