Allen Edmonds Men's Eastport
Styleforum Top Picks
So if you were to order a new pair would you go up in length or width or both?
I agree totally. My AE Eastport are very high quality and great, but run a bit small. Shoe trees and wear are stretching them to the proper size for me as well, but got blisters after the first few wears until my feet (or shoe?) adapted. I walk A LOT during the day though.
Since they are recraftable, I haven't decided whether I'll have AE do that, or just outright replace them, since they are not terribly expensive (compared to recrafting services).
I did get some blisters on my heel the first couple of times I wore the Eastports - I'm thinking it was due to the lack of socks. But after 2-3 wearings, they are very comfortable.
The Eastports are excellent deck shoes.The tan looks even better in real life. Plush leather insoles for all day barefoot comfort and re-soleable. The outer leather is wonderful. I highly recommend this shoe. I wear a 10.5D in most AE models but my Eastports are an 11D for a touch of extra room. They still lace snug enough and I personally won't be using them on a boat.
