Hey guys, I am an 8e in AE, can also fit a 7.5eee with the tongue pads.

How would I size in the Penny or Italian loafers?

Do I stick with the 8e? Worried they may be too loose without laces. I have a wide and flat foot, so maybe loafers are a no go with AE?
I would go 7.5eee, since I feel like loafers should fit snugger. After all, there are no laces to tighten them up.

The 7.5EEE he already has to add tongue pads to laced; I assume you meant 8E?

What models/last are you an 8E in? Different lasts can result in different sizes, especially loafers. I wear 11EEE in 65/1757, 11.5EE (or EEE) in 511, but 11.5E (With stretch at pinkie toe) in 606/2042/79 loafers.
Here’s a good start on recommendations for sizing on lasts. Italians are on down there:

Neo did a great service compiling all of this info.

Shell wolverines today. Unlined burgundy shell is great. Also, face masks are fashion now and should match watch band and shoes.

I normally just use Bick 4 on “casual leather” like oak street, CXL HM, Strandmok, etc. Is there anything else I could or should be using in addition?

Happy Halloween!

My brother likes to say he works for a living, he delivers for UPS on an industrial route. Empties and fills a 26' truck every day, often more than once. So when I asked him to take a picture of my boots out in the desert and he asked why I wanted a picture of my boots, of course I lied.

I do love these CXL HMs, and while they were far from my first AE (which goes back to the early 90s) they did re-ignite my passion after a few years off.

Question for the group...I bought my brother a pair of these same boots. He has been wearing out $100 cemented boots every 2-3 months (Columbia etc.). After a break-in period, he loves the way they feel but is saying the Dainite is on track to wear out after 3-4 months. Recommendations on a sole for a guy who does 30,000+ steps a day and wants something as light and durable as possible? I'm going to try the Vibram Arctic on his Weatherproof ones once the Dainite is worn out (he works in Denver), but I could use a recommendation for an April-October sole on the CXL ones. Christy Wedge?

Appreciate it. One more question. I'm graduating from AE care products to Saphir. What color is best for matching AE Walnut, Chili, and Oxblood?
