    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Is AS Wilson a retired design? I can find it on the AS website, not on any of the online stores? May be AFPOS can answer that?

    Hi guys, I am new here. Hope you guys can help me on this. I have AS 109 oxfords (6FUK) which fits me quite well even though I have low insteps (flat feet). I am looking at EG 82, 888 and Carmina Rain and would appreciate any insights as to the fit, eg. would EG's E width or Rain be ok or a bit narrow? Thanks.

    No matter how many pairs of shoes you have, you still need Moore ;)

    Wilson is a style in the AS Exclusive usually used for mto etc. This may well change in the future, but for now is not a stock shoe.

    As part of our continued commitment to SF members, we have the "freetrees" offer running indefinitely for free lasted trees for full price AS shoes and boots. This is the very best way to keep your new AS shoes looking their best as they literally fit like a glove, and lesson the effects of creasing and maintain the original shape of the shoe.

    I wear 6.5/7E EG 82/888; I am a 6F on most AS lasts (6.5F on the 99).

    Thanks DpprDr. Curious about the 99, I thought the 99 is wider/rounder than 109 so why the need to size up?

    It really depends on your feet, I have wide feet, so I sized up 109s same as 99.

    Alfred Sargent Holburns arrived the other day made on the 87 last. I absolutely love this boot cause of its versatility. The leather quality is beautiful plus this last just seems like it was made for my feet :)

    They came from Richard and Michelle the 'Shoe Healers'...I would like to highly recommend them for their superb service and passion for what they do.

    The Moore went out of the house and into the office today for the first time. Felt very good but it developed a heel squeak much later in the day, which became quite prominent no matter how I walked.

    An issue with the shoe length being a tad too long perhaps? I've heard talcum powder or cornstarch may help. Does anyone have any ideas? But dang, still very happy with the buy....
