Bump!I’ve been wearing my Daltons, Williamsburgs, and Hamiltons pretty frequently over the past couple of weeks and I am fearing that my brogues (McAllisters, Strands, and Fifth Aves) will stop getting worn.
My boots are just more comfortable, and I think I know why. As the heel of my foot has molded the beds, I think my heel has sunk down a little which has allowed for my ankle bone to rub against the sides. Any suggestions? I’m thinking about putting some renovateur on the areas that are rubbing to try to soften them up, but I’m not hopeful it will really accomplish anything. I also got some wool socks from AE that are thicker than the wool ones I have from Brooks Brothers, but the difference isn’t that noticeable.
Thank you! Yes it was! Late last year and got out of training in March. Really been a good time so far.Congrats! And if I recall correctly, this co. you joined not too long ago?
Those are beautiful. I love, love brown shell and with this boot it just knocks it out of the park.
Sounds like the throat is too tall for your foot. Does the shoe fit correctly elsewhere? Being 65 lasted shoes you mention makes it harder, and I would really consider if the shoes are ideally sized. I had that issue with the 201 last, and just flexing the side of the throat where it made contact allowed it to lay down enough to not be painful. The rest of the shoe was a compromise fit, so I no longer have any 201 lasted shoes. You could put an insert in (at least at the heel) to raise your foot up a bit if you are sure you have best fit elsewhere in the shoe.Bump!
Here is one you don’t see everyday (which is ironic considering the name):
These are vintage AE “Tom, Dick, and Harry.”
I bought them from a great eBay seller who is also one of our members.
Someone else on the vintage dress shoe thread found an old AE Catalog that showed the age.
They are in exceptional condition. They appear to have been worn once or twice. Unfortunately for me, they are too long and wide for me now. They are 11.5D if anyone is interested.
