The 404's are a tad loose overall in 10E (but not inappropriately so for such a heavy duty boot) so I thought I would check in here first before breaking out my credit card. In AE I'm anywhere from a 10E to 10EEE depending on last and whether it's calf or cordovan. I have Park Avenues in both 10EE and most recently 10EEE; the latter being most comfortable. That said whether we're discussing a loafer, boot, or balmoral shoe, my shoe size is a consistent 10 in AE with only the width being in question. I'm looking to change things up and perhaps find some more comfortable lasts and broader shoe designs.
I guess I'm most curious about sizing LWB in Barrie (975), balmoral wingtip in Tremont (974), and Straight Tip blucher in Aberdeen (2160). Is 10E the way to go regardless of last?
Any thoughts on the merits of the Alden 974 versus the AE Cambridge?
