The classics like the Park Avenue, Strand and McAllister have been on sale for the past 3-4 years as part of their Anniversary Sale. I bought my Park Avenues last year for $260. Most likely it will be on sale this year again

@Neo1 I was reading your fit & sizing help post to try and figure out what size to order for the Patriot and Randolph.  The 65 (7.5 EE) works for my foot pretty well and like yourself, I size down .5 in length and up one in width from my brannock (8E).  I've been told by others that they went down one width from their 65 size for the Patriot, have you had a similar experience?  What about the Randolph?

These shoes are size 10E.  The left shoe has this crease going on and slight heel lift.  The right shoe does not have any crease or heel slip (basically a great fit)...  Both my feet measure the same on the Brannock device.  Maybe a shoe construction anomaly?  

 

For reference, I have tried on the Rogue in 10D (different last I know 201 vs 65) but they felt very uncomfortably tight.

In my opinion both of them have what I would consider abnormal creasing, but it is more pronounced on the left shoe.  Did you try 9.5 E?  The Rogue should in fact fit bigger, the one I tried on had too much volume for my foot in the same 12 B that I wear in the 65.  That's just my opinion though, so take it FWIW.

 

A good way to test to see if there is too much volume is to press down on that area where your creasing is, that should be pretty close to the top of your foot.  If it feels like you're pressing down some dead space to get to your foot, then you might have a fit issue.

It very well could be that the shoe is too large due to size variation.  Or I'm wondering if it could be because your left foot is smaller than your right?   

 

I've learned recently by comparing my Carlyle's that there can be significant size variation within the same size.

Shout out (is that a thing anymore?  Should I upvote, give rep, or karma?  Something else?) to Sean at Riverhead.  

 

I asked, via email, about a pair of Cambridges during the flash sale today.  He obliged my requests to take some pictures, having had not the greatest luck on 2nds (and some 1sts) in the past.  Even went to the trouble of holding them aside with trees to send out before close of business...

 

...I ended up backing out.  Self-funding my wife's maternity leave (which she doesn't get, really) takes 1st priority out of my savings these days.  The state of New York, Sean, private business (read: AE), and I all lose out on this one because paid maternity leave is a myth in this country.  :brick: 

 

On the flip side... she gets to spend more time with the kids, which hey, is worth more than the shoes anyway. :slayer:

@AndyMiddles Glad to hear someone actually looked at that. So...

Bearing in mind I measure a c-width on the brannock, the patriot is definitely not too wide. 65 size (meaning d-width) the heel to ball fit is actually quite narrow, really locking you in. The toe is on the large side. I would NOT go down the width. Majority of people might even say up a length, but id probably start with 65 size. You may really hate the fit, a lot of people do.

Randolph is more "standard" - it actually fits quite wide , at least for me. Wide toe, widish heel. Again id say 65, but maybe drop a width on this. As a person with narrow width but high arches, the Randolph is the exact wrong fit for me, but id imagine most people would prefer it.

Got these off the Shoe Bank several years ago when I was ordering something else.  They were just listed as MacNeil Casual Brown for about $100.  I really like them since they are pretty casual and go with almost anything.  The leather is really strange.  It has a rough texture and soaks up conditioner like crazy.

As suggested, I tested the volume by pressing down on the crease and there is much more volume on the left shoe as compared to the right shoe.  Without measuring circumference of my feet,  there isn't striking visual difference between left/right which leads me to be believe the left shoe may be constructed slightly different.  

 

I have some Strands in 10e at home that I haven't worn yet and will check size and volume when I get home.

Interesting.  My dad picked up a pair of McGregors from the bank and one shoe was literally a half size bigger than the other.  We both tried them on (same size feet) and had the same issue.

Yummy. I'm planning on buying a Strandmok + Neumok soon. Just waiting on the Navy Leather Strandmok to go on sale >.<

 

Off topic, but does anyone happen to have one of those $50 off regular priced cards?

I'm also wondering, does the Amex deal return annually?  Or is it one time only thing?

I believe they had the event once in 2015 and another in 2016 (ended 6/19/2016). Sadly, I did not know about AE then and only recently got hooked, bah!

My shoes have similar creases. Is it too long or too wide?

First wear for 5th Ave Dark Chili Dainite seconds. The creasing on the left shoe seems odd. Thoughts? Am I being picky?
