I love to hate the #2 last.
anyone know the nam of this now discontinued Allen Edmonds model?
if you wanna call them ask for Kelsey, she is very prompt and helpful. Otherwise ask for Kristle as she is the manager and can give you an additional discount, at least she did for me this morning.
I go down in width for all my loafers to get a fit that is more snug (including in the heel).
I've recently lost quite a bit of weight (60 lbs) have wondered if my foot has gotten smaller.
I've noticed that in certain shoes I have to draw the laces extra tight or that the two sides of the shoe too easily come together. Not exactly sure it warrants going down 1/2 size or going to a C from a D since the shoes do feel fine, but would appreciate some opinions.
In my Park Aves, Strands, McAllisters, I have never been anything but an 11.5D.
Take a look at this picture and please tell me if It looks poor fitting:
I am contemplating purchasing a pair of Park Aves in Merlot. Anyone have pictures comparing calf in merlot versus shell cordovan in burgundy? Especially in Park Aves?
I'd suggest a different method of lacing, e.g. straight european lacing or sawtooth lacing -> http://www.fieggen.com/shoelace/lacingmethods.htm
My shell shoes and boots fit just slightly larger than calf in the same models for the reason you stated. Not enough to change width or size in my experience, just a little bit. My walnut shell Dalton's actually have a little more room in them than my calf and shell Leeds however that could just be my particular boot.
I wish, but the problem is that like the article said there are no slaughter houses in the US for horses, the last one closed 6 years ago. That was when the Federal Government made slaughter of horses illegal in the US from pressure of groups that have a tendency to humanize horses and other animals such as PETA. And that doesn't stand for People Eating Tasty Animals unfortunately. They overturned that about a year or two ago however no slaughter houses have opened since then. Horses in the US are taken to Mexico and Canada to be slaughter ever since the ban and still are.
I just packed a pair of CXL and black calf Bayfield's up to send back for exchange of a gift card for what I paid for them. One is a second. With the poron insole I really needed to size up a half size but wore them for 2 years pushing through the tightness anyhow. It is AE CS that is buying them back, not the outlet and I told her they have been worn hard and are not resalable. She didn't care how worn they were, she was the one that told me she was buying them back, I didn't even consider asking and wouldn't even dream of it given their condition and length of time worn. The CXL is a past slightly worn, this is between the Boundary Water Canoe Area and North Shore of Lake Superior last year:
You need to call and ask, it is the only way you will know.
No one is going to be able to look at this and tell if it is poor fitting.
Agreed, but it's pretty much a given his foot is smaller if he lost 60 pounds. He should go get fitted by AE to see what is current size is.
I'd like to know this is as well. Pretty please.
You're probably right. I actually live outside if Philadelphia, it's just tough to get into the city anymore.
Ahhh I love the Elgins. Those look great! I was going to wear mine today, but went with the green Rancourt boat shoes.
Hmm.. I already have the Black Park avenues, Walnut Strand, Merlot Mcallister and grey long branch.
Should I add a brown Fifth avenue to the collection?
