AE Mora fit - Advice please

Hello all,

I was just reading NukeMeSlowly's post on his experience with his AE Mora double monkstraps, and it got me thinking.

I would love a pair of inexpensive double monks in dark brown, and the Moras seem to fit this description.

However, I have a high instep.
I have learned via trial and error that I cannot wear certain models of AE shoes, such as the Park Avenue (even in a EEE fitting) as the instep on the PAs is simply too low.
I cannot lace PAs up properly (too great a gap between the "v" of the laces) and if I do pull them really tight so as to close up the "v", my foot feels as if it is being crushed.

Therefore, I would greatly appreciate some advice as to the fit of AE Mora model.
Does anyone happen to know if it has a higher instep than the PA?
Can anyone with a relatively high instep comment on fit?

Given that I do not have any way of actually trying on a pair prior to purchase, any and all advice is appreciated!

The Park Avenue, which is made on the 5 last, is awful for people like us with high insteps. You will find the Mora to be a comfortable fit.

Bob,

That's good to hear - thank you very much for the advice.

I'd be interested to hear of any brands you have found to be particularly good for people with high insteps, so that I can focus on those when shoe shopping.

Regards,
JH
