and use an insole to take up some of the volume.
I just got two pairs, and may buy a third, if they have my size.
They are indestructable.

Interesting. So they're not low instep like your Ludwigs? I need a pretty high instep.

Do you happen to have any front view pictures?

sounds like you and i have similar feet. have you ever tried a stretcher just to make up the last little bit of difference in the pinky toe area? I did that with my 5-last AE's and it worked out fairly well. they still rub, but aren't anywhere near as tight.

Because they are chukka or ankle boots, the instep matters less.
I can't find any front view pics. There was a "sold" entry on ebay
a day or two ago of the previous model of these shoes- which I own
which might have had a front view but I can't seem to find it.

Very happy to have found this thread. I tend to stick with AEs mostly because it's the only make where I can consistently and reliably find US 14EEE. I'd love to try Carmina or the English makes, but I've never been able to find anything even approaching my size (and in fact the folks at Carmina and Meermin told me via e-mail that they don't don't even have extra-wide lasts). So, AE it is.

Whoa, 14EEE? That is truly out there. My condolences. I can no longer complain about not being able to find shoes that fit.

The Forest last from Carmina comes in an "wide" that they call a EEE. For my US 12EEE feet, a Forest last 11.5Wide fits very well. Might be worth a shot if you can get the length.

This is good to know, thanks.

Weird, I wonder why they told me a EEE width wasn't possible?

I'm 6'4", about 220 lbs, so at least my feet are in proportion. That said, finding things that fit well, from shoes to suits, is a challenge.

Here's a pair of Chukkas I'm about to list over in B&S, but I figured I'd give you guys a shot at them first:

Loake Gatcombe (for Charles Trywhitt) in a 9.5/UK G fitting. This is very similar to the 026 last, but just a bit longer - I am a "big" 10.5/US and these are roomy and I'd bet they would work if you were an 11 as well. G fitting is a EEE US. Brown, three eyelets, Danite sole that looks new. Worn about a dozen times (see sole for wear), always stored with trees, comes with unopened tin of Loake polish and shoe bags, but no trees. Great winter shoe - very versatile! $165 shipped - PM me with any Qs.

Same drill as above, but here are a pair of AE Randolphs that Brooks rebadged and sells for $318.

Here's a link to the BB site:
http://www.brooksbrothers.com/Penny-Loafers/MH00026,default,pd.html?dwvar_MH00026_Color=BLCK&contentpos=10&cgid=0522

These are a 9.5 EEE/US but beware of the random madness of AE's last sizing as I am a big 10.5 and had to size down the same way I would on a typical UK fitting. Lovely dark brown color, sole has factory installed topy, so great for wet weather, goes with just about everything in your closet. Worn probably about 8-10 times - always polished and stored with trees and in perfect condition, but I am going in another direction on the loafer front. Comes with bags but no trees. $150 shipped.

want:  any AE 8.5 3EEE, don't care about condition.

+1. I'm a 14EEE and generally stick to Allen Edmonds as well - I thought I was the only one, lol. I'm 6'7", 240lbs, so relatively proportionate to my massive shoe size, but still, tough as fuck to find shoes that fit (not to mention shirts, suits, etc.).
