I wore an 11D in the 5 last and 7 last. It's a bit too slim for me so I ended up selling my AEs. Not sure if 10.5E would have worked better
Thanks for your input - much appreciated. I have a pair of 5-last AEs that I'm going to sell because they're just too narrow to be comfortable, but the 11E 5-last is wonderful. I think the best option is to order both a 10.5 and an 11 in D-width and just see what works. Luckily JCrew has free shipping and it's only like six bucks to return something.
So...does anybody ride a motorcycle in their Indys?
