I wear an 8.5e in the 65 (and fits me perfectly, very tiny gap in balmorals) and an 8.5d in the leather Gobi. If anything, the Gobi is a touch roomy. The Gobis are my favorite AE and get the most use though. I find them to be very versatile.

Anyone from Europe that has ordered from allenedmonds.com? Or is it maybe a cheaper alternative somewhere? I was thinking to order a pair of maritime. I think that will be a good pair of shoes to have in the summer. Many in this thread are speaking highly of this model so I'm confident that it will be the right model for me.

I dropped down a 1/2 from my 65 last - but this was largely due to the volume of the shoe and the fact that mine were suede. Keep in mind I have low arches/volume feet. I had both 9d (tts/65 last size) and 8.5d before ultimately deciding that the 65 size was just too big in the toe box and near start of the lacing.

 

With your case, I would start with the 10.5D, then perhaps try the 10eee. Enjoy them!
