    FYI, AE isn't taking D width shoes and simply marking them E. European retailers generally prefer and buy E width shoes from US makers, because the European consumer prefers to wear their shoes shorter, and for that reason needs some extra width.

    How would a shorter show mean you need it wider?

    Let's assume you wear a 10.5D comfortably. If you put the same shoe on in a 10D you'd feel pinched, because it's now not only shorter but also not enough width (the shoe gets shorter but also incrementally narrower even though it's a D width - everything sizes down by scale). But if you put on a 10E you'd have the shortness (what the European gent prefers) but now you have the extra width (which is closer to what you had in the 10.5D). So in the end you're just wearing a shorter shoe, but you don't feel cramped otherwise.

    Because you're further into the toe box taper, so you need the extra width to keep the usable width the same.

    Happy Friday pals! Dressed down a bit today with some Ralph Lauren cords and a vintage wool sweater. Cold outside so it's boot weather! Unlined walnut shell Dalton for the weekend send-off.

    For whatever reason, this color is notoriously hard to photograph!

    I'll hit them with a wet rag again which is what I do after every wear and then brush like mad. Usually takes care of it.

    Thank you. I am always surprised by the low turnout numbers here.
