    My TTS is 8D. My normal 5-last size is 7.5E. I just ordered some Sheltons from Amazon (I had a coupon) in 8E and 8D to see which one fit. I went to my local AE store to try on a pair but they only had one size in stock (not mine). I'll report back when they arrive. Granted, these aren't BB versions so may not help with your BB Walnut/Brown but maybe with the Finches.

    Considering a pair of suede Amok's;

    What do I need to do in order to pretreat/protect and care for them thoroughly? I have avoided suede shoes up until now because I know it to be a nightmare to take care of and almost impossible to clean once stained. I have heard there is something I can treat them with so they absorb a protective barrier. Any advice?

    anyone swear by the fit guide on ae's website? i wear 10 in red wings, 10 in clarks db's, 10.5 in nikes/sneakers, and 10.5 in other dress shoes.

    the fit guide measured me as 11 on one leg and 11.5 on another, so i went with a 11.5 as it recommends? or did i screw something up?

    Got my RL Saunders and BB strands from this sale. Some minor imperfections with some spots on the uppers and poor finishing on the soles. Nothing that can't be fixed with some polishing.

    I forgot to also mention that the Walnut/Brown Sheltons had some tiger striping on them. I had seen this before on Walnut Kenilworth seconds. Anyone know how correctable this is (in case my replacements have this, too)? Can you just polish over them with Walnut enough to blend them in? I'm unsure if this is due to inconsistent dyeing, or something more catastrophic akin to stretch marks on human skin.
