Get thinner socks?

 

Seriously, your shoes shouldn't fit great with one set of socks and terrible with another unless you have exceptionally thick socks...

They fit great with thin "dress" socks, and my RL thin wool "holiday" socks, but with my think winter wool socks they are to tight. You still think that is normal?

 

Sorry for the noob question.

I understand the winter sock being tighter, but I don't think this should really change the sizing of the boot THAT much. I could of course be completely wrong. Still, I'd give them a few wears just to see if they stretch out a bit. In fact, try lacing them slightly looser and/or with a different pattern. Even for a winter sock there should be enough play in lacing the shoe to account for the thickness of the sock. Or try finding a different winter sock that is warm but thinner. Assuming you might wear these in the fall or even summer on possible "excursions" you want to be able to wear the boot with different thickness socks, and you shouldn't need 2 different sized boots to do that.

Yes, this is normal.  All of my AE's are fitted to dress socks and would be too tight if I put a thick winter wool sock or athletic sock on.  Fit your shoes to the socks you will normally wear with them.  When I got my Malverns, they were perfect for a dress sock and too tight for thicker socks.  I made the decision to wear them with dress socks.  Wear your boots around on carpet for a few days with the socks you will normally wear them with and see what you think of the fit.

Beautiful - that dark brown in the Daltons is very nice, wear them in good health. 

 

Yesterday: black calf Graysons

Today: my new Bayfields in brown Chromexcel

P.S. to tie into the previous conversation, I sized up a width in these, to accommodate thicker socks.

The Graysons look great- can you give us a quick rundown of the fit and how you like them? I feel like they are underappreciated vs the randolphs and westchesters. Unfortunately, the 7 last might not be for me

Just received my red CXL belt and bracelet; matches very well with the red Neumok.  AE has added the Cottonwood belt that matches the Neumok leathers, a little late for me though.

Mctavish.  Probably the most comfortable pair of shoes I own.  I can wear them all day long.

Good question! I found out from here. But I think the news came from some people here who visit the outlets on a regular basis. I'm guessing you could email Edward at Freeport and ask to be put on an notification list.

Wasn't so sure about the black ones, but those look great.  Might have to pick up a pair.
