    I'm trying to become a believer in American-made shoes again and so I've decided to try Allen Edmonds. I tried the Strands at an AE store here in NYC and loved them but I just wanted to try to find a way around spending 300 bucks on my first try so thanks to you guys here I've since become aware of the Shoe Bank and just today ordered a pair of Moras in Brown Suede. I am pretty excited. One question How do the lasts of the Strand and the Moras differ?

    shoebuy.com or endless is the cheapest way to get AEs from my experience. Definitely cheaper than shoe bank for recent models.

    Wow, I'm suprised you can still get those. Great shoe. I found the Mora last to be a bit big in the heel area. I still like the shoe, but it is a bit looser in the heel than I'd prefer.

    I am another one who finds the #8 last used for the Mora to be too loose in the heel area for my feet. I think this is a fairly common problem. I have the same problem with the #2 last.

    The Strand is on A-E's #5 last, which is their longest and narrowest. It is a good fit on my feet in my normal size, but not everyone finds this to be the case.
