Aren't the Dalton Boots on the #1 last? I'm not the best to ask because I seems to be all over the board on sizing. Here is a good rundown of some of the shoes I have and how they fit.
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.
