I think this also depends on how you sized in the Marlows. If you went true to Brannock. I would go one size down. I went half size down from Brannock for my Marlow shoes and am only half size down from Marlow in the UK equivalent size.

Hi guys,

My tassel loafers came in the mail today. They're beautiful shoes. Like I mentioned in my previous post, I ordered them TTS. The length is good and there is just enough room in the toe box. The only issue is a bit of heel slip that I am experiencing. I think this is pretty normal and should go away (or at least reduce a bit) once the shoes are broken in.

Just for fun, I put on a pair of white low ankle socks and then a pair of dress socks over them. By doing this, the heel slip went away. I may do this for a while until the shoes are broken in.

Should go away when the soles break in a bit. Which should be 3 years since they are built like tanks!!

lol - agree that they take a while to break in, but it was more like 3 weeks for me

Wearing mine today. I bought mine used and am still having heel slip issues. I have heel pads in mine to reduce the slippage. I went half size down from Brannock. Don't think I could fit in half size smaller, my toes are as cramped as I can comfortably take.

Seriously. What the heck are these soles made from? Is there a titanium insert that you can't see??? LOL

Looking good! Give the double sock method a shot and see if that works for you. Like I said, I think I'll do that for a while until I break mine in.

Speaking of breaking in the shoes, I plan on topy'ing the soles since I have issues with wearing down the toe quickly. I never thought of this until now, but is there a potential issue with topy'ing new soles? Should I walk around the house with the shoes on for a few days to break them in a bit first?

There's going to be even less flex if you have Topys applied. You may just want to go with toe taps.

I topy'd both of my Aldens and I can't tell that anything was added. Anyway, I stopped by my cobbler after work today to see what he could do for me.  He offered me the standard rubber toe taps, but I think they're kind of ugly, especially on a sleek shoe like the tassel loafers. I ended up getting some thin metal taps. I think I made the right choice. Best of all, he didn't even charge me. :)

I use plastic toe taps until the sole begins to flex. Remove
