    Why the sore feet in my dress shoes??

    Hi Guys, So I ask the question, why are my feet always very sore after a days work in whatever dress shoe I wear? I currently rotate 2 pairs of Hugo Boss shoes (oxfords and derbys) and a pair of Cheaney oxfords with a Dainite sole. Also own a pair of Handgrade C&J's which I haven't worn yet...

    Allen Edmonds fit & sizing help

    Lots of people have asked questions related to sizing, fit, etc. so I thought it might be helpful to compile the info I've gathered based on personal experience. People can feel free to add to this. Last This narrows things down a lot - won't absolutely determine whether something will work...

    Alden Shoes: Sizing Guide

    Lasts Alden's lasts may seem a little confusing to first-time buyers. Our posters in the Alden thread for 2016 (archived pre-2016 Alden thread here) have a wealth of experience and knowledge about Alden sizes. We were able to compile this guide thanks to the contribution of many users who have...

    Perfect fix one foot smaller than other boots

    Just made an account so I could share this. Had been looking for a fix to extra room in the heel of my boots. Just got Saint Laurent ranger boots so I wasn't about to use any adhesive tongue pads. Looked at equine gel cushions and thought man I should just use a running sock and basically thats...

    Just received Chukkas, question on sizing

    Hey all, I just received a pair of Gordon Rush chukkas I ordered off of Gilt, and have a question on sizing. This is my first pair of chukkas and I wasn't sure how they fit, so I ordered the same size I wear in sneakers, an 11. Seems like a mistake as they feel rather large. Do you normally...

    Should you size down on Loafers?

    Is this the common standard? Mainly asking about Ferragamos if you can provide insight on those. If not, a general answer is fine. Also, these would be monk strap.

    Birkenstock Sizing?

    What's with Birkenstock sizes? I typically wear a size 9 shoe and my last sandals, an "elegant" (if one can use that term for a sandal) Born design I purchased in Yorkville in Toronto, were 9's. Yesterday I decided it was time to try Berkenstock's. Dillard's (one of the few stores in Greater...

    One foot bigger than the other - What can I do??

    Just bought a new pair of shoes (pictures will be posted). My right foot is slightly smaller than my left, as a result the right shoe slips off a little bit. What would be the best remedy? An insole? Heel grip? Thanks

    Allen Edmonds Shoe Sizing Question

    Hey so I am looking into slowly upgrading my shoe collection on a budget. I've decided to go the used Allen Edmonds route and recraft if it's necessary, resulting in good-like new shoes for 50% off or more. I'd likely be going for Park Avenues, McAllisters, Lombards, MacNeils, 5th Avenues, and...

    Air "whooshing" Sound From Shoes

    Does anyone have an issue with their shoes making a "whooshing" sound when they walk? It seems to happen on my better fitting shoes. The shoes that most closely resemble the shape of my foot seem to have a louder sound. I guess when the leather closely fits my feet, the air moving through this...

    What constitutes of a shoe that is too big?

    Obviously, every shoe maker will have different lasts/styles for each shoe. I recently purchased a pair and when I "shove" my foot in all the way in order to have my toes touch the front part of the shoe, there is a small gap near the heels of my feet. Does this mean my shoe is too...

    Shoe crease causing pain

    (I saw some old threads on this topic and chose to start a new one rather than bump an old one.) Some Allen Edmonds Park Avenues I've worn approximately 10 times have developed a crease that presses on the joint/knuckle of my big toe -- mainly on one foot, and to a lesser degree on the other...

    New shoes, how tight is too tight?

    Jeez, sorry, this seems like such a childish question, but it's really bugging me. So as I mentioned in another thread, I purchased a pair of Allen Edmonds Lexingtons, size 8.5D. They are tight. I wore them yesterday afternoon (about 3 hours) and today (about 9-10 hours) and my feet are...

    Difference between 10.5D sizing and 10W

    Hello all, Just had a question regarding the difference in shoe sizing overall. I was recently at nordstrom buying a pair of allen edmonds shoes in a size 10.5D which fit perfectly. However, I saw another pair of shoes that I also liked but they didn't have, 10.5D, I asked for a 10W (10 3E...

    Agonizing over 1/2 size when buying shoes - - Pointless?

    I bought a few pairs of shoes this week and, as I often find myself doing, I agonize over 1/2 sizes. One is slightly more snug, but will give and break in, the other will be slightly looser. I can never make a choice that I am 100% happy with. I always wonder if I should have gotten the other...

    Loafers slipping at the heel

    Hi All, I've just got some new black loafers to go with some mid grey smart/casual trousers, and the size 10 feel very comfortable but the heels slip quite alot when I walk, but not uncomfortably so. (in fact they still feel comfortable walking) I also bought the 9.5 and these don't slip, but...

    Vans, small sizing?

    Recently I bought some vans, but they did not fit. I used the following chart: US 10.0 - EU 43.0 28.0 CM US 10.5 - EU 44.0 28.5 CM US 11.0 - EU 44.5 29.0 CM US 11.5 - EU 45.0 29.5 CM Whereas I normally wear 9.5uk = 10.5us they did not fit me. Whereas the chart says 28.5 cm japanese, I...

    Loafer fit - too loose, or intended?

    Long time lurker, first time poster here. Hi everyone! I'm hoping someone can have patience with a question from a sartorially challenged. *clears throat* I recently ordered a pair of penny loafers, and finally got them today. Thing is, I've never owned a pair of good loafers before (yes, yes I...

    I have thick ass feet so shoes don't fit...

    I have really thick feet. Not wide, but thick. I guess it is from doing Taekwondo. Anyway, my problem is that I can find shoes that fit length and width-wise, but not enough height-wise if that makes any sense. So the top of my toes (especially my big toe) gets crushed whenever I walk and...
