    It's on the 8 last. Great shoe IMO.

    Thanks. I'd like to pick one up in seconds if I can to add to the collection. I'm a 7.5E on the 5-last and 8E on the 1-last. Any idea what size I'd be looking at on the 8-last? Thanks.

    don't forget you can also ask the AE staff for size suggestions as well

    At least for my feet, I find the Clifton just slightly tighter in width than the 1 and 5 last shoes. But not by much, so I have been getting the same size in all three of these lasts. I would likely have went 12.5D on the Clifton if they made it in that size, but went with a 12D. They were a bit tight when I got them but have broken in nicely.

    What do you guys think about the size of the sole on my new McAllister? I understand these are hand made and some variations can exist, but the inside front edge of the sole sticks out way more than I think is needed. I feel like they could have shaved this down quite a bit, closer to the sole of my Strand, and it would have looked quite a bit better. The stitching appears to be in about the same place for each shoe, but then there is quite a bit of extra leather sticking out on the McAllister. I didn't measure, but using my official "pincher test", I can pick up this shoe by that portion of the sole and I cannot on my other 5 last shoes.

    Do any of you have shoes with this much sole sticking out from the sides? I feel like I've been fairly forgiving of slight defects, but I'm having a hard time overlooking this one (these were first quality and not seconds). I can also see a bit of the bulge or seam near the toe that some others were discussing a while back.

    That would bother me, particularly on a 5 lasted shoe.

    Same as your 5 last size.

    What about a burgundy or merlot cap toe or LWB? Obviously, it's personal preference and need, but #8, or burgundy, is my favorite color and fairly versatile.

    Those look great. They look a bit different than the other AE offerings in chili, but it may just be the light. That's a fantastic boot color!

    Hi guys I was wondering if anyone could help me out since most of you will probably be more knowledgable than me. I recently got the Allen Edmonds Williams (brown burnished calf) as a gift from my dad. There are a size 11EEE which is way too big, I think a size 10.5 E or D would have been more ideal for me. Would have loved to return them for a smaller size, but since my dad lives in the UK and thats were they were purchased the return period has expired and I'm stuck with them. Is there a way I could maybe make them fit or do I have any other options than selling them for what ever I can get?

    Cheers

    Please call AE or even better go into a store. The company has a high standard of customer service and they may simply help you swap it out.
