    It's probably the leather. All my Indy line shoes seem a bit looser than their counterparts on the same last.

    Black McTavishes today. I absolutely wouldn't wear it if it didn't have the natural colored sole.

    Unacceptable creasing is that which causes structural damage or itself causes a fit issues. Looks fine to me. If they feel good, they fit good. I have great creasing on a pair a little too long, and (what I would call) bad creasing on a pair that fits perfect. Probably because of my extra long toes. Feet are different and the creasing will be different on every shoe regardless of what some may say.

    I checked out the J&M. They are all right and I may go look at some in person this week-end. However, they just don't look as good on the web (price tag excluded of course).

    Very nice! Does that walnut pair at ~6 o'clock have a really short toe cap, or is it foreshortened?

    [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][/IMG]I just got my mcalisters delivered yesterday. They were special ordered since I ordered a 9.5 B. Is love input on two questions:

    1. The insole of the right shoe is a little "bouncy" like it'll occasionally come up slightly and when it gets pressed down it lets out some air. The left one isn't like that, it's firmly in place. Any suggestions, opinions?

    2. I got a pair of 9.5 B walnut strands about 2 weeks ago and they fit great. Although the mcalisters are on the same last I think these mcalisters might be too big despite being the same size. Can strands & mcalisters in fact fit differently? Anybody with similar experience have a suggestion?

    Vey new to AEs here so I appreciate the input :)

    Bourbon strands came in. Loving them. No noticeable defects or issues with the pair.

    Nice looking shoes! I have yet to roll the bourbon dice but I would be quite pleased with that outcome.

    Great looking shoes! Always wish I could have gotten a pair -- but as usual, they weren't made in my narrow size.
