AE Park Avenue to C&J Drummond Size Translation

Hi All,

Given the relative strength of the dollar, I'm thinking about buying a pair of C&J Drummonds. I've read up about size suggestions and all but on looking back at the Pediwear website, I see they now have the Drummond in G width.

I normally take an 8EEE in the Park Avenue (5 Last); any idea how this translates into C&J sizing (Drummond is on the 348 last), and whether I should go for the G width or E width? Thanks.

I would get a 7.5G, personally.

Thanks, Grimslade, for your thoughts. I will order a 7.5G and report back on how it fits.

Why don´t you just check out the C&J points of sale in NYC ? Get yourself a proper fitting, buy a little something in the shop -if that makes you feel better- , and buy the shoes online. There´s nothing wrong with that. Finito la musica.

If you wear a EEE in AE I highly doubt a G fitting in the 348 is going to fit your foot. The E fitting fits a US D. The 348 last is not for someone with such a wide foot.

Hey Everyone,

Thanks again to those who posted.

My 7.5G Drummonds arrived about 2 weeks ago and I've had the chance to wear them a few times. The fit isn't perfect but actually ended up being a good bit better than my worst fears. The shoe is a tiny bit long and not quite as wide as I'd like, but I have no discomfort in walking for the better part of the day in them. The above quibbles do not represent serious fit problems.

I usually have worn an 8EEE in Allen Edmonds and Alden; the 348 probably isn't an ideal last for my foot in the 7.5G, but I like the shoe in the fit is pretty good, so I'm sticking with it.

Just thought I'd post an update and let everyone know what my results were.

I wear a 12.5D in AE #5 last & the 11.5E on the C&J Drummond fot me. I probably could also wear the 12E.
