    I picked up some AE Strands as a graduation gift to myself today from Nordstrom. They feel comfortable, and not knowing any better I bought them. After looking at pictures online, I realized mine have an enormous gap in the lacing. They are a 10D. I have a lot of free space in the front and I'm thinking of going down to a 9.5EEE. Nobody locally has anything other than D width in stock so I'll be buying online. Any opinions on which size to try from those much more knowledgeable than me? For comparison, I have some Florsheim Imperial wingtips, which I can't remember the model of, in 10EEE and they do fit perfect with only a small gap in the laces.
