AE Dalton Shell Boots (1 last ) - 9.5E - These fit absolutely perfect
AE Bradley Shell (1 last ) - 9.5E - These fit perfect
AE Dundee Shell (1 last) - 9.5D - These are a little snug but the 9.5E fell off my feet ??? Don't understand this at all?
AE Cambridge Suede (5 last) - 9.5E - A little snug but still a great fit
AE Nuemora (new 333 last) - 9 E - I've never sized down this low before but these fit perfect. (Thanks to the SA for ordering me several pairs to try on!)
AE Fifth St Boot (5 Last) - 9.5E - Perfect fit
AE Weybridge (7 last ???) - 10D - great fit - These could fit better but I think it's the shape of the last.
AE Strand (5 last ) - 9.5E - perfect fit
Alden LWB #8 shell (Barrie Last) - 9E - A little big but wearable
Alden LWB Cigar shell (Barrie Last ) 9D - A little snug but wearable
Alden LWB Tobacco Calf (Barrie Last) - 9D A little snug but wearable
Alden Captoe Boot #8 shell (Grant Last) 9.5D - Perfect fit
Alden Ravello Shell Wingtip Boot (Barrie Last) 9.5D - A little large but they fit when wearing boot socks
Alden Cigar Shell Indy (Trubalance Last) 9D - Perfect Fit
Alden LWB Sand Suede (Leydon last) 9.5D - These are my best fitting Aldens!
Hope this helps.

Thanks, Pastor, this really helps me.  I'm planning on increasing my AE and Alden collections and seeing how your other AE and Alden's fit is really helpful.  And sorry you're correct, the AE Daltons are on the #1 last.  I didn't know the shell Daltons came in an E width.  I have a D and kind of wish I had an E but maybe they'll break in nicely.  It's interesting that your Alden Leydon last is your best fitting Alden since it's kind of in the middle of Alden's lasts as far as narrowness/wideness goes.  I guess that means the AE #1 last is on the narrower side compared to Alden lasts.

 

Thanks again.

I know this is an AE thread but I have to say that your Alden Ravello wingtip boot generates extreme envy on my part.  I'd have to see how I do with the Barrie last but they are kind of my to-die for boot right now.  Can I ask where you got them?

Hmmm my shell Dalton's are a D and fit more like an E and are a bit large on me. I've been taking up the extra space with heavier socks. My foot is between a C and a D, normally closer to a D. You wouldn't happen to be a size 10 would you?

I've been going back and forth on what boots to get......the wife and I are going to Europe over late December/early January and I want a boot that could take some rain/sleet during the day yet still be able to wear them to dinner that night with a nice sweater or sport coat.  I was thinking possibly the chocolate calf Dalton with the rubber sole.  Any thoughts or recommendations?  Thanks!

Sorry, I'm an 8.  But that's interesting because I had thought my foot was a C/D also and I find my shell Dalton's snug, right back of where my little toe is.  I guess at the widest part of the forefoot.

nice!  I just sent my new pair back to get exchanged out due to the heel

splitting.  are the medallions on your strands pretty centered on the toe?

that was another issue I found on the strands i sent back, hopefully the

new pair will be better.

I did a 2 for 200 once before on their discontinued and seconds and everything was perfect. I ordered some walnut shell cordovan strands. Ill post on them and take pictures when I get them.

The shell Dalton's were MTO last Christmas so that's how I got an E width. The Alden Ravello wing tips came from the shoe mart. I've posted several pictures on the Alden thread.

I just checked and they seem to be pretty centered.....if they aren't, I can't notice!

Just received my Strands from the factory store (seconds), 9 1/2 C , which is what I normally wear in most AE's (sometimes a D). The amount of space I have at the laces is quite a bit more than yours, should the spacing on my shoes be closer, like yours? Do I need a wider shoe? Their snug now, but not uncomfortable.

 

Thanks

IMO, the gap is too wide, but it may disappear as you break the shoes in. If the rest of the fit is comfortable, I'm not sure if I would worry.

Please post photos of your seconds smile.gif

From my understanding there should be no major flaws

My mindset is like it will be buying refurbished electronics, which you will never know or tell if there were defects in the first place.

Any thoughts about using this on the Navy Neumok and the walnut Strand?
