if I had any desire to drop about $400 on a red and green shoe, your makeup is the best looking to me. Please remind me how you got the red Dainite (which looks great on that shoe). Simple sole swap for an upcharge when ordered? An old MTO?
I got them last year and ordered them with a sole swap. It was an option on the order page. There is someone else on the forum here that has them with green Danite on.

Yeah... all I see are inappropriate organs
Reminds me of a story.

A guy is finally convinced by his family to see a psychiatrist. The doc starts the workup and gets to the Rorschach images. He shows the patient the first image and says, "Tell me what you see."

The patient says, I see a guy and girl having sex.
The doctor shows him the second image and again asks what he sees.

The patient says, "I see a guy and three women having sex.
The doctor shows the third image and repeats his question.

The patient says, "It's a group of people tangled together in an orgy."
The doctor says, "I'm afraid you are abnormally focused on sex."
Me?!, says the patient. "You are the one with all the dirty pictures."

Holy SALE batman.

When they first announced the $199 sale there were over 200 items in my sizes (9.5E, 10D) in-stock but now there are less than 50. Do I need to order more before it all disappears?

Got kicked off the AE Enthusiasts page today. Boy that was easy. Just had to suggest that the way they manage the page is much more inconsistent than AE’s quality ever was.
lmao that was you?! I happened to see your comment and I thought it was hilarious because it was true. I didn’t get a chance to see the post where people kept discouraging the first pair though. It’s really sad that that community is like that. Usually I’ll see that kind of stuff one Reddit, but only because someone is asking if the pair should be returned or not.

Thankfully y’all aren’t like that here. It can be a bit intimidating to post here though, because I see a lot of regulars here and hardly any fresh faces.

We've all been the fresh face! Have no fear of posting!

Would anyone, with more knowledge on sizing than me, explain the difference between a 9.5E and 10D on the 511 Last (i.e. Leeds, Wilbert)? I straddle the line between 9.5E and 10D on the 65 last and ultimately go with the 9.5E because I need the width more than the length but not sure how it translates to the 511 which is already a wide last.

Sizing is like quantum mechanics. If you think you know it, that is the sign that you don’t. But on the 511, I would try the 10D first.

What if I know quantum physics? Would that help with sizing shoes correctly?
(I don't actually know it)

Not trying to be funny, my 10D Wilberts started out great but after about 2 years of consistent wear they are a bit too wide, yet anything on the 65 last I need in a 9.5E otherwise they are too narrow.

The 511 runs shorter than the 65, so some men will benefit from 1/2 size up. I would start with 10 D, but you say those are too wide. 9.5 E is likely not going to improve that issue, as it will be wider. However, the overall volume in the toe area would be less above the toes. 9.5 E and 10 D use the same volume, but it's distributed differently if that makes sense. The other possibility is that the 511 might not fit you all that well. It's not the best last for me.
