post #37441 of 87356

I bought some park avenues today and have an issue:  My left foot is a little wider than my right foot.  The right shoe fits perfectly, but the left shoe feels a little tight on the outer-left side.  I'm not sure if I should just live with it or if there's another solution.  

 

Any thoughts?

^ Seems like a great question for the AE forum.  I think we all have this problem to some degree, as no two feet are the same, including your own two feet.  I buy shoes for my larger foot, and the smaller foot thus gets a little more room.  Sounds like you did just the opposite, so you may either need to wear them a bit until the leather stretches, and if it doesn't, look into having them stretched.  Or you can return them and get a size wider if it isn't too late.  The last on which Park Aves are made is the longest/narrowest made by AE.

Sorry, I thought I was posting in the AE thread.  Thanks for responding though.

How is that?  Are your Alden's self-adjusting to different size feet? crackup[1].gif

So, if I wear an 11 in most tennis shoes (Nike, etc.) and Red Wings size 11 run a little big on me, should I try my luck with size 10 in Alden? Of course, with J. Crew I can return, but I'd like to get it right the first time. Thanks.

I'd start with a 10, but in the Barrie or truebalance lasts, you may be a 9.5.

I recently picked up a pair of new Indys from an SF-er abroad. After lacing them up, I've accepted the fact that they will stretch out and become too big (even with another insole).

I've tried the right shoe on once. Knowing the strict Alden return policy, are there any options in trying to get it swapped for a smaller size? I know I can't break the last but I think I have slightly creased the inner side of the boot. I will go to the NYC store once I return and figure out what my exact size is.

Is my only option trying to find an exchange on the forums? For anyone looking, I'm hoping to trade these 8D for a smaller pair (I'm guessing 7.5 atm).

Thanks. It's the latter so I'm crossing my fingers a 10 will suffice!
