    I would like to add that Dalton leather seems a bit more softer than other AE leather shoes that I own. And toe box looks to be a bit soft as well. And my Dalton developed some crease on the toe area ); .It could be a sizing issue But the toe box is softer when I compare with other ae.

    what you need to do is find a girl that is in love with shoes as much as you are. My wife and I take turns goggling over our future shoe purchases online.

    Fifth street boot was one of my recent purchases from about a month ago (4 other AEs since). Purchased the dark brown, wore them once and I'm in love. I've always had an infatuation with balmoral boots, and am considering purchasing the black and merlot version of them as well.

    As far as the wifey concerned about our passion, mine seems pretty chill about it these days. Although I do sell on eBay, so I'm always snappin pics of things daily. Packages entering and leaving the house is a normal occurrence. eBay sales funds my shoe drug addiction, and she don't really care lol.
    I can only recommend you try and involve her in why you enjoy what it is we all share here, maybe she will take an interest.

    Sorry for the slow response. I wear the same size in both,12E. Now the snugness is far less noticeable then when they were new. Even if the RL's feel a little tight on first putting them on for the day, after 15 minutes it's completely unnoticeable, maybe due to the leather warming and softening. If I didn't have a couple of MTO shell Amoks on order, I'd get more of these as even a hair snug still fits my foot better than the Dundees I tried.

    I have the brown fifth streets, and have had them for about a year. They are a great looking boot. I have had no squeaking issues. There were some breaking in squeaks, but after the leather was broke in that stopped. The brown looks excellent with variations of grey, and of course blue. The only knock I have on these is that I wish they were a it taller like the Dalton. But they are a great boot for dress or casual.

    I wear my Walnut Dalton for dress with a suit often. Grey and blue are great. Also, grey flannel slack look amazing with the walnut Dalton. I would not hesitate. Pull the trigger.

    Has anyone picked up a pair of the suede Strands? I love my brown ones and have been looking for a pair of casual suede shoes, but I noticed the suede Strands have a different model number (1614). Do they not fit the same as the regular Strands, which are on the 5 last?

    Thanks for getting back to me. I'm glad your answer is what it is because I have both pairs of Saunders ordered already on the same size as my Strands and McAllisters.

    thanks again for the very helpful input. I think I'm definitely getting the fifth street in brown. I also agree with your advice as far as getting your S.O. involved in the hopes that she will better understand what we do here.

    Beatiful shoes! I too like the idea of a balmoral boot. A very classy look. I also like the fact that the brown can be dressed up or dressed down.
