I've posted earlier in the thread about my trouble with the 5 last and since it's been brought up recently again I thought I'd chime in. I was originally sized at 8D but there wasn't one in stock and it was clear 8.5D was too big so we ordered and I received my 8D a few weeks later and while the left (larger foot by a good amount) seemed to fit okay, the right was loose. I went to another local AE store (Boston guy here so I'm lucky) and was sized at 7.5E so did an exchange. They seemed perfect in the store but now having worn them seven or eight times when my feet swell later in the day my small toes get cramped by the angle of the last. I'm not sure what to do and I have another pair on order in 7.5E. The sales rep is very nice and said he would work with me and recommended I wear them about a dozen times first. The thing that's tough is in the morning they tend to feel great and the smaller right foot is even slightly loose. But at times they just aren't as comfortable as they should be. Most of the shoes I like from AE are on the 5 so if it's not for me I'll probably start looking elsewhere. Let me ask you guys... The salesman offered to stretch them for me. What kind of negative effect might that have (if any). Will it help? I wonder if I should go 7.5EEE or back to the 8D or even 8E. When I tried the 7.5EEE it just seemed too wide especially on the smaller foot. There seemed to be so much extra leather but that was also early in the morning before any swelling. Thanks, all. EDIT: I should also mention that when I went back in after wearing the 7.5E about 5-6 times the salesman got down, pinched and poked a few times and said that he was certain that this was the right size for me and to give it a few more wears. Also, I'm talking calf skin not cordovan.
