Does anyone have a Dellwood and/or thoughts on the 4 last? Is more 65 or 511?

Hint on RDA from the store. He thinks it'll drop on the 30th. I was in there to buy some trees. Sadly (and stupidly) AE is discontinuing the far superior tree, notice the difference in the heel, for the cheaper tree as the sole option.


That is a shame. I see Woodlore still sells a full selection of better shoetrees, and I was under the impression they were owned by AE.

I heard from AE that the knob trees were "likely" to be discontinued soon. I really like them, but I would use caution if you're buying them for shell. They do put a little more pressure on the uppers, which may or may not be acceptable depending on your shell size. For calf, they work great.

If the 4 is the McGraw, it is wider than the 5 (might be shorter, too)
The McGraw is the only pair of AE shoes I've had to return and it was because they were so tight across the ball of the foot that my bones would pop when I took a step, and the shoe left an imprint on the top of my foot if I wore it for a while. Maybe the pair I got were mislabeled, but they were much narrower than any of the shoes I have on the 5 last. Length seemed similar to my other shoes though.

4 last should be very volumous.

Website has the good knobbed version on a 2 for 50 sale right now. Probably closing them out. Sadly, I threw away the boxes on the two lesser version trees that I bought in the store last week. I still ordered two of the good ones though, so now I have a couple of backup/sneaker trees.
