    Are they getting chewed through because of heel slip or because there's something digging into your foot?

    So much awesome.

    I am assuming that the top of the heel counter is digging into you. You can take the palm of your hand and push against the heel cup from the outside of the shoe. It should loosen the heel counter up so it is not digging into your foot. I have put a towel over a shoe in the past and used a pliers to work the heel cup a bit more. But I am a bit aggressive.

    In the Dalton boot, how much difference is between 8 D and 8E width?

    7.5D in Rush Street and 7.5D in New Orleans are perfect for me.

    Ok, so this does not top Shark with Double Dainite (awesome by the way), but these just arrived and are pretty cool IMHO. Stirling have some bloom on them.

    They don't seem to slip at all, it just feels like they are curving into my Achilles. Best guess is that the Poron insole has my foot lifted a bit in the shoe, making the fit not ideal. Going to try to soften the heel counter to see if that helps.

    Sounds like it's not a big deal that I missed them. There's a pair in 8.5 D, but no way would I try a half size up with this shoe on the 201. I hope AE never gets rid of poron. I know it messes up the fit for a lot us, but to me, single leather sole + porn = most comfortable shoes ever.

    Anybody have the Caen in brown leather? If so, what are your thoughts? Would you recommend them?

    Thanks.

    Great choice!! Black is great in shark but a lighter color (say chili) really shows off the texture. Shark skin is just not that popular anymore.

    @audog has 'em. Apparently very similar to Normandy, just less distressed. I can't imagine him NOT recommending the Normandy/Caen!

    Yes, He will recommend them! Leather is Kudu like Normandy, have clear lug sole, like other Caens. Not quite as distressed out of the box as Normandy, but a little “worn” look to leather. The Kudu is buttery soft, you can’t go wrong if you are looking for a brown leather casual boot. Or a black casual boot, because I have those as well.

    How long do you suppose I give Brooks Brothers to ship my shoes before I become enraged? Thanks!
