Never owned a pair of AE's before, ready to make the purchase. I wear 10.5-11 and have pretty narrow feet, I'm interested in the Strand Walnut calf or the Fifth Ave Walnut. Please let me know if you have an stock left.
Everyone happy with the MacNiels in shell? Never seen or tried em on in person. They compare to Alden longwings (e.g. 975s)?
I'm headed over to the Allen Edmonds store today to try them on and see about sizing, usually a 10.5 D. I'll post back what my fitted size ended up being. Edit: Turns out my feet have shrunk and gotten fatter (matches the body, I guess!); now a 10 E. They didn't have any 10 E MacNeil's in stock, did try on a 10.5 D and there was a pronounced pinch. They are bringing in a 10 E shell but it will probably be a few weeks. From the feel of the 10.5 D, though, I'm pretty confident it will be the right fit.
