    I have Strands and Malverns and wear the same size in both. That said, I do notice that the Malvern is slightly more narrow than the Strands.

    It runs narrow for me (I wear 11D).

    I didn't get a wider pair so it took a while to break in.

    AE Outlet Freeport ME. I was dealing with Edward. Boots arrived today, no discernible defects. Wearing them (10.5D), they're a little tight in the width at the ball - do people think they'll stretch?

    These Dalton calf boots are my first pair of AEs. I'm a 10D in an Alden Barrie shoes with dress socks. I wear a 10.5 with hiking socks in Alden Trubalance (Indy) and they're a little loose. I wear an 11D in Alden Plaza boot with hiking socks and they fit perfect.

    Should I keep them? If I size up, should I go 10.5E or 11D?

    I'm sure this was addressed in this thread somewhere...

    I just got the email for the 'through February 5th' outlet sale. Who is the best person to contact (I'm in NYC) to find out local outlet store inventories?

    I am not sure how much they will stretch since I am still waiting on getting mine in Dark Brown, which I have been waiting for even before the sale. But back to your topic, if they have a 10.5E u should order those and compare what you have and return the one that you don't like. I think given the information that you wear 10D in Alden Barrie last, the 10.5D should be a length, and the problem, to me, could be the width.

    Thanks for the info. Been following the Mac method of breaking them in - been wearing them for a couple of hours on a carpet. Called and spoke to Edward in Freeport again and they don't have any ones in 10.5E or 11D. If anyones looking for a 10D or 11.5(E or EEE), they still have those...

    I would say size up in length or width in Malvern. I am a normal 11.5 D but had to size up to a 12D. They're supposedly on the same last as the Leeds, but the Leeds fit me huge. The Malverns, on the other hand, are noticeably shorter than all the other 11.5D's I have from AE.

    Wow, that's quite a price. Do you have any idea about size availability?

    Edward told me that they don't usually have too many seconds boots in compare to the non-boots.

    so I guess I can relate why yours cannot see any flaws
