    Similar situation for me with my Daltons. Quite snug in the forefoot area, but once the leather warms up a bit they're fine. I'm pretty sure with more wears, it will improve. No such issue with the Sauk (201). Definitely more volume in the forefoot. Out of curiosity, what do you take in the 65?


    In my case (Dalton vs Sauk), They measured the same, but again visually they appear (to me anyway) longer. Was wondering if it carried over to the First Ave, or if the cap toe made that moot.

    That extra $50 over the other Anniversary sale goes a LONG way.

    All treed, all bagged, no boxes. Boxes just take up so much space and are aesthetically a no for me.

    I have to go up in width from from 8E to 8EE on the 65, which unfortunately limits me a bit :-(

    now that it's warming up, any recommendations for what no show socks I can wear with my AE Cavanaughs? I also have a pair of Maxfields.

    Guys, if any of you want a walnut Strand, I highly suggest you wait until the Nordstrom anniversary sale (mid July). I got mine last year for $265.

    So I spent last night going through the shoes that my dad bought for my brothers wedding. He picked up McGregors in black, bourbon and walnut, a black Rouge and dark chili Lexingtons. The suit he's going to wear is a dark charcoal with a very light tan pin. The black McG's had a stretch mark on the vamp, so those were an immediate no go for me. The walnut McG's had a fit issue where one shoe fit like it was a size wider than the other, so those were out. The bourbon McG's had a small error on the back of the of the shoe where the back seam is slightly misaligned, but otherwise is the most beautiful bourbon color that I've seen. He really likes the fit of the Roughes and the color of the dark chili.

    So my question is, what shoe should he wear/keep? I, as most of you gents, don't really wear black shoes often unless it's a formal occasion (which I guess a wedding is) and IMO a black Rogue is somewhat counterproductive because it's a semi-brogue derby, which obviously is a more casual style. I told him that if he wanted a black shoe, that he should go with a PA, a PTB or even a Flatiron. I told him to keep the bourbon McG's and the Lexingtons and wear the Lexingtons to the wedding. What says you gents?

    Chilly morning (by southern standards, at least) with rain in the forecast gives me one last chance to break out the Dainite Daltons.

    Both these and my First Avenues are an 11.5 B, and while the First Avenues feel appreciably roomier and incrementally longer, I think I actually prefer the fit on the Daltons. The initial snugness at the ball of the foot has subsided after ~6 months of wear, and they seem to fit better around the ankle.

    I have 3 pair of the AE no shows that are made by Marcoliani. They are great socks and when i bought them they were buy 3 pair get 25% off, so it was basically like getting a pair free if you bought 3. They're on sale, so you can buy just 1 pair to see if you like them first and not have to worry about buying 3 pair to get the savings.

    As unofficial oxblood week comes to an end, it was either the Dalton or McGregor. Mother nature decided to rain/snow and I'm babying my Daltons so McGregor it is. Back to the shoe tree convo, why do shoes in boxes, in the stores not have them in? Just curious more than anything. Is it because they haven't been worn that often? I'm sure they've been tried on in the store, right?

    11.5 B there, too. I needed an 11 B on the 333, and either 11 or 11.5 is OK on the 108, but 11.5 B seems to work everywhere else.
