I took my regular size 9eee. Not sure on the lining but it’s a hell of a lot better than my slippers from Lands End.
The lining flattens somewhat. Bare feet I have a lot of heel slip, average thickness dress socks are pretty good and thick ones make them feel to short.Interesting. I have super low volume feet, wear 65 in 9D, and brannock ~9.5 'C & a half'... tried these in both 9.5D and 10D. Only the 10D felt like it might work width/volume-wise, but even that seemed so tight that I could not slide my foot in and out as you would slippers.
Are you wearing them like warm shoes? Or more like slippers? Does the lining flatten down substantially with wear? I really wanted them to work, but afraid they need to go back.
Technohorse. The shoes didn't take dye that someone sent to elegant Oxford for patina.
Ultra refined means corrected. That's my take.
That’s super disappointing. I don’t mind corrected-grain offerings, and AE has done this over the years many times. I really dislike if they get rid of full-grain entirely, though. AE has been a great entry point for quality footwear. For many, that means collecting at least a couple classic-line shoes and pivoting to sneakers, shell, suede, or wherever else. If AE stops making classic-line (or any???) full-grain shoes, i and many others would have to recommend that newly interested collectors begin elsewhere for a classic shoe (e.g., cobbler Union, Thursday, meermin).
