I'm looking to purchase either the Loake Burford (dainite sole) OR Fisher MTO (commando sole).
Those that own Allen Edmonds, how does the width measure up on the Loakes? Reason is after owning both the AE Dalton and Strands for a month, I couldn't get a perfect fit on my feet and the constant discomfort wasn't worth keeping the shoes. It was more in the toe area that feel squished after 2 hrs of wearing. If I went one size up, it'd be too loose.
I've read somewhere where English boots run a little wide so hoping the Loake Burford would be a perfect replacement for my AE walnut Dalton (loved the boot/color but couldn't stand the fitting issue).
Also, I typically wear size 9 for all my dress shoes so per Pedigree guide, I should order a UK size 8?
Thanks in advance.
I don't own any AE shoes but the Burford is effectively the loake Chester in boot form so perhaps you should ask how the Chester compares to AE widths and that might give you the possibility of more replies.
