    Be careful following David's "advice". The unworn shoes for return is AE's actual return policy. Sometimes David infers things from stuff he's read online, but his comments aren't always factual. People have posted about about AE taking back shoes that were worn for some time, but this was due to extenuating/exceptional circumstances. Don't expect them to do so for everyone every time.

    As for the stiff insoles, others have posted about the firmness being something that takes time to get used to if all you've ever had before are soft padded insoles. But this is something that is better that takes a little time to get used to and in the long run, you and your feet will like it better.

    As to the sizing--you had stated that you tried on five pairs of PA's and these were the best, most comfortable. It sounds like the SA did take his time to ensure the correct fit and wasn't trying to just push the sale and get you out of there. These could very well be your correct size and it could very well be that it will go away after break in as the leather soften at the creases. While I really shouldn't be mentioning Birkenstocks in SF, when they are NEW, they ALWAYS rub the top of my toes and hurt/blister, but it also ALWAYS goes away after a little break in when the leather softens at the places where they flex from walking. While I can't swear that this will happen with yours, there's a good chance on this type of issue that it will.

    Hey all, I just bought some shoe trees for my new shoes and I am worried if they are going to stretch my shoes. Do the shoe trees look to big or are they fine?

    Quick sizing question: I take a 10D in McAllister and McTavish. Would I go with the same size for MacNeil?

    TIA.

    NO NO NO!!! You are supposed to apply the edge dressing BEFORE you do the cream!

    Just kidding, sorry couldn't resist . That is the exact same treatment I used on my burgundy Leeds for many years to good effect. I feel as long as YOU are happy with the end results that is what matters. There is nothing wrong with your treatment IMO. To maintain them I still wipe with a slightly damp rag and brush for ~5 min. then buff with a buffing cloth for another 5 or so. Great choice in picking the Leeds by the way.



    Thank you for your reply Cold Iron.
    I love the Leeds. They are my favorite shoe to date.
    I have emailed AE for a custom order in light brown shell Leeds, but they told me they only have dark brown.
    The problem is that I want them different enough from the burgundy to justify the 750 dollars order.
    How dark is the dark brown?

    Well... this might sound ridiculous but asking can't hurt. Do you think it would be possible to order by phone for delivery in Canada? (Hard to get decent things for decent prices here).

    Perfect thank you! I measured my foot according to the AE guide but am unsure how accurate that would be. I'm debating whether or not I should stop by Harry's tomorrow to try a few pairs on... Sounds horrible I know.

    There is also a few Brooks Brothers locations in Toronto depending on where you are. I'm not sure how the fit is with their insole though.

    i measured according to their guide, and ended up being a 1.5 sizes smaller (followed directions, confirmed print with credit card, etc, had someone else measure my foot).

    i'd just try them on somewhere if you can
