Which do you prefer in the V gap?

@TexasTexter  Similar to @Lobster33 and @JLC2.  

 

In 65 balmorals I 'could' wear an 8.5D, but a bit tight at the balls of my feet and the instep, and a tiny bit too much space in front of my toes, (my heel fit was fine).  8E was MUCH better.  

 

I've also tried a 7.5E, its OKish, but then the widest part of my foot doesn't line up perfectly like it does in the 8E.  

8D was too tight and bad V-gap.  

8EE too much volume.

 

Brannock is 8.5 D/E.

Definitely the 7.5 E.   In fact, it's one of my best-fitting shoes.   The midnight Navy Park Aves I ordered recently are in the same size.

So if you could pick any Shell Cordovan shoe in Allen Edmonds current production what would it be?

Another Dundee.  Brown or Black or both or for that matter Natural or Navy.  I have Burgundy.

 

Or a Leeds.

 

Or a Strand in Brown.

 

I should also note, as an addendum to my previous post, that in shell 65 balmorals 8D does fit better than 8E.

Shell Cornwallis, and in Bourbon because I'm a dreamer.

Wait did @TexasTexter mean currently produced in shell or currently produced in any leather?

post #14813 of 17604
If you never hear from me again, it's because I didn't dress like a cowboy when going to a western themed bar tonight. (sorry for the non AE, those are my 1000 Mile Boots. Figured I could run/defend myself better in these than my Daltons.) I can't speak enough about cardigans. I could wear them daily. Also gonna be rocking to Game's new album on the way there. I'm a cultural mess...

In shell currently.

Burgundy Leeds.   I would have said navy Carlyle, but that's not in current production.

If you suggest the walnut Strand, would you recommend the mainline $335 Strand, the $257 Brooks Brothers Strand (40% off coupon referenced above), the $229 factory second, or a Bartlett?

I have no comment on the style, but walnut and a burgundy/oxblood/Merlot would both work with what you describe. Given your preference for black and darker Browns, you may be more comfortable with the burgundy spectrum.

What's everyone's captivation with the Leeds?  Can you wear it business formal?

If you choose shoes based on being able to "run or defend myself" you need to hang out in better places or get a better class of friends.

The Dundee is amazing.  I would agree.  Leeds, not sure what it's claim to fame is.  Strand= definitely.

You might get that in the upcoming trunk show!
