I'd say I have about 20 uses out of these Allen Edmonds Stands and I'm noticing creases on the inner side of the shoes...Mostly the left shoe. Is this somewhat common/uncommon? Maybe one foot is wider than the other? Thoughts?? Anyways...I spent time at the AE store trying out different sizes and these were the best fit. Though at first these shoes were very uncomfortable, however after the 10th time wearing them, they are becoming more and more comfortable.

Thanks @James1051 . They were made for Club Monaco and have a few nicks - who cares for $77! Usually my size is 12 D, but these are 11.5 D and are perfect! Must be the suede.
That is odd. Mine are 1/2 size up from my usual size and they feel quite snug.

Normal. All my 65-last shoes crease this way

I've got a few pairs doing that to varying degrees. As long as they're comfortable is my concern; creases happen.

Sir, aside from your consistent good lighting, I'm putting this one down on my list of possibilities for the future. The oxblood in this pair is what I would consider an ideal shade. I owned a pair of PA's a few years ago that were in oxblood, but they were more like a dark purple and I wasn't crazy about the color. Oxblood is one of the few colors I do not own any shoes in, although I own a couple merlot pairs.

Kicked off the week with a birthday bang. Started the morning in burgundy MacNeil (not pictured due to being late). Ended the day in bourbon Higgins Mill, out for burritos with the fam. Hope you all have a great week!

It is all about the shape of your foot vs. the shape of the last. I have very flat pronating feet. My foot pushes down on the arch area of all my shoes. Some lasts more than others. I do that on the 73 last in just 2 wears. Nothing to worry about and not much you can do unless you spend $3500 on a bespoke shoe. They can actually put arch counters to stop or limit that.

Taking out the Jefferson today. Decided on burgundy socks because they have some blue. Unfortunately you cannot see the blue at all. Rule breaking today if it still is a rule.
