Allen-Edmonds Park Avenue for both casual and dress? - Page 3

What is my true AE size? Any advice?


i think the problem is the last, not the size. the five last which the park avenue is built upon is a last suited for low insteps, and your high arches probably mean you have a high instep. try a shoe on a different last. or see if you can find a 10.5EE. but i think you need a shoe built on a last with a higher instep.

Thanks for the tip! I ran by there (it's kinda crazy in there ) and found several almost new AE shoes, but none were in my size unfortunately. Do you know how often they get new stuff in? How about any other hidden gems like this store in the Phoenix area (for anything... shoes/clothes/etc)?


Last Chance gets new stuff weekly - on Wednesday's I believe, so it's worth checking back on a regular basis. And yes, it's always crazy - but worth it for the prices.

Well Suited is a resale store with two locations, Camelback and 20th Street (SE corner) and Scottsdale and Lincoln (SW corner behind Black Angus) - they get a lot of upscale resale clothing and you can take stuff you no longer want and get cash or credit for use in the store.

As-Is Department Store Outlet (or it may be called Final Chance now) is on Scottsdale Rd about a mile North of the 202 on the West side behind Burger King. They always have a ton of Aeropostale and often Ralph Lauren stuff for really low prices... (like $10 a shirt)... it's not as upscale as Last Chance or Well Suited though.

Buffalo Exchange has several locations around the valley, but they are more streetwear.

Thanks for that Novaguy.

Are the Broadstreets style a more likely fit for yours truly by accomodating me in an 11E say? ie Being a wider or more suitable last for me?
