Thanks for the response. I only have a few pairs of AEs so I am still feeling my way through their lasts. It is unfortunate there is no AE boutique here in Toronto, stores mainly carry D widths and have limited styles. The Strand in 8.5D is a bit too snug at the widest part of my foot and so is the 9D but not as much. The issue I have with the 9D Strand is when I look down at my shoe the vamp seems to exceed the width of the sole (muffin top for shoes), my guess for the #5 last I might be a 8,5E however I am hooping the Jefferson in 9D with the added volume might do the trick. My only concern would be heel slippage. My 5th Ave in 9D slips a tiny bit, not enough to put in a tongue pad or an insole....the Fairfax is a perfect fit. BTW I have the Big Sur and the Players both in 9D as well and Boston in 9.5D but I use a half sole with it.
