All this talk about CT's Cherry wholecut has really piqued my interest in getting a pair of shoes with toe medallions, but I dislike CT's enormous handlebar-moustache looking design. I much prefer Loakes original Norwich. However, Zappos has the AE Dryden for a bit less money. My concern is sleekness though. Im wondering if maybe the faux-cap-toe perfing on the Dryden will widen the toe (What I'd really love is an AE wholecut on the 8 last, but alas...). Zappos's sole shot makes the toe look like it as right angles to it (though AE's own picture looks better). Can anybody who knows both the Loake Norwich and the AE Dryden, or anything else by AE on the #2 last (Burton, Saxon, etc.) comment as to the sleekness of the Dryden, as compared to the Norwich, which I find quite nice. Thanks!
