    Great points, as certain skate companies lasts (spot the Canadian) have had issues with volume on my most recent pair 6 months ago.....

    It looks like my foot is slightly back from the widest part.
    I printed an AE Brannock yesterday and it shows 7.5d!

    The sitting down picture is me sliding my foot forward to show the space at the heel.

    I appreciate the feedback. Stupid questions to ask, but my city, as great as it is, lacks a lot style wise.[/QUOTE]
    I would give 7.5E a shot if I were you.

    I swear you and I have nearly identical taste in footwear. I feel like I'm one of the very few people on this board who have and prefer the original Eagle County to all those other SMUs with leather soles.

    Damn. There was really that much difference between the suede and saddle leather fitment? I hope they end up working out.

    This pair in stone suede is really comfortable, but I'm somewhat surprised at the color variation I'm getting in different lights. They range from a lighter grey-ish tone to a very tan hue depending upon light, shade, etc., to the point where they can look like two different colors in pics:

    Granted the first shot was with a DSLR and the second two are straight off an iPhone, so the color balance and processing is going to be very different, but it's actually a decent representation of what I saw today out and about. Aside from an off-white pair of Doc Martens bucks, these are my first foray into suede shoes and I had no idea that the color could change like this.

    Haha it seems so.

    The OG Eagle County is awesome and I could not understand the hate on it. At the time I bought (about 2.5 years ago) I scored them at $127 as factory seconds and honestly felt like I hit the lottery. The leather on them is fantastic, waxy, and has a very Tan Dublin look to it, though I am not sure they actually used Horween leather on them. My only complaint is that I should have gone up a width in them, I can comfortably wear them with thinner socks but not boot socks.


    This pic I found online back then that sold me on them.

    Remember those $50 Harrisons I picked up?

    Here's the pic from the eBay listing:

    Here they are after I tree'd, cleaned, conditioned and polished them:

    Here they are with their other adopted Independence cousin, the Hopkinson (paid $80 shipped).

    Finally got a black captoe and my first black AE shoe.

    I got them for $127 as well, around the same time. I recall seeing that guy's post with photos of them which definitely helped sway me in the right direction. They do tend to run a bit narrow. I got an E width which is usually perfectly adequate, but I think an EEE may have been the optimal choice for them. Either way, I love them.

    Jst got here today. One of my biggest AE steals. A pair of firsts Allen Edmonds Cornwallis oxfords for $255. I think I'm actually happier with this pair than my AE Chili 5th Avenues that I got on the AE Anniversary Sale...

    Was about to put these away for the season and then the weather turned. Got to wear 'em twice this week :) I don't get to wear these often but they're one of my favorites. AE should launch a 'Connoisseur's Collection.' It would include a balmoral boot, Chelsea boot, gunboat, spectator and an opera pump. Multiple suede and shell options would be offered.

    Very jealous! They are the next shoe on my list, but I've been waiting for them to come down in price. I have them in Walnut and absolutely love them. Really want a pair of them in brown, and would've jumped on the $255 deal if Bloomingdales had E or EEE widths.

    A few small drops of rain won't hurt these guys.
    This is my only monk strap shoe, and I like them a lot.

    Thanks to @Mreams99 & @ Pudman43 for their advice on turning Bourbon into Dark Chili a few pages back. Much appreciated!

    It's amazing; bitter chocolate can go from looking like a really dark brown to an almost vibrant color that I would mistake for snuff or brogue suede in some lighting.

    Before I bought these, I was hoping Nordstrom would put them on sale as part of their 2016 Anniversary Sale this July. Who know. Maybe they will. And they actually do have EEE widths. They look amazing in walnut too. How are yours holding up?

    That would be great if they did.

    My Walnuts are holding up well, although I've only worn them 2-3 times so far (they're still fairly new).
