    This helps a great deal. Much thanks my friend! I'm considering the walnut shell.

    Thanks for the reply and making me feel better that it's not my feet that are jacked up. Both my McAllisters have the standard leather souls. I don't mind creases in the vamp at all and I always use shoe trees but it's weird how this small crease is forming. Shoes trees don't extend all the way into the toe box so they don't help w/ this particular crease. Everything else about the construction of the shoes is otherwise exceptional... I suppose I can live with it and see it as a bit of character.

    This is very reassuring. It sounds like we are very similar in that I am 9.5E-10D in barrie and will go with 10E in Dalton. Thanks very much my friend!

    Well I do have flat feet, wear insoles and have pretty skinny ankles. I'm guessing they won't break in as I would like?

    I was going to say the Sanderson because I am a big LWB fan and prefer the double leather sole, but after seeing this second pic I'd say go with the McAllister. Good luck...

    Great haul. I really wanted a pair of Chocolate larchmonts but they were sold out when I tried.

    The photos on the AE website are horrible. ALL of them without exception, the shoes always look better in real life.

    I had virtually no break- in for mine, so I would not anticipate much change from how they currently fit and/or slip in the heel.

    If I got those, they would be sent back faster than it took you to post that pic. That is terrible.

    They're going back in the morning, I was just curious what was the deal with them.

    I mean there is nothing wrong here; these will be seeing pavement far sooner than you'll remember that they started out as separate colors. It's your money and you should do what you want, but I personally wouldn't hassle with it.
