    They do, but it very much depends on their stock. It's a bit of a crapshoot if you're an E, but at least you aren't a rarer width like EE.

    For clothes, I've seen a few sizes that came in short since I'm a 38s (suit size) myself.

    Certainly did. Had tons of family over to my parents' home for the LSU/TCU game and my father and I cooked up a mean pot of jambalaya.

    Quick question, don't know if this is the place to ask, but I kinda need a quick answer. I want to buy the Dalton Boots, but once somebody told me that according to my Santoni size (8UK F) I should go with 9.5D. I ust did the Sizing & Fit Guide from Allen Edmonds and my toes lie on the line marked 10. So according to them to give room to my toes I should go with 10.5US.

    But for example in Carmina in the Rain last I'm and 8UK... so I'm very very confused.

    I think 9.5 may be correct. Like a lot of AE lasts I size down .5 to get the correct fitting shoe. My foot lies on the 8.5 mark, but in most AE I am an 8D. I don't know how much this helps, but I'm sure you'll get a couple responses here soon!

    AE sales associates are quite good, but they are human. After you tried on multiple pairs, each having the same problem, they may have grown impatient (even if not consciously) and reached the conclusion that the same issue would probably be found in any AE shoe. Though, actually having you try on different lasts might have revealed a more pleasing fit (which is a big reason why shoes are made on different lasts to begin with).

    I do not, but it looks a lot like the Chukkamok that I DO have, and love it- they are just extremely comfortable...

    My mother always said that if I don't have anything nice to say, that I should keep my mouth shut.

    I don't have the Mojaves but my understanding is that the sole is the same type used on the McTavish (which I do have). If true, I'd imagine that the sole would get dirty pretty quickly as mine seems to pick up much more dirty and oil than my Amoks or other shoes...

    The nicest thing I can think of to say about these is that they aren't the ugliest boots I've ever seen...

    In defense of the Sun Valley, those are an Alpine Boot. They aren't meant to be worn casually, or as just every day boots, but as a specific type of hiking boot. If you need an alpine boot, you already know it. I'm sure there are plenty of people out there who are really glad that there's a high-quality, Made in USA, non synthetic material alpine boot available at a reasonable price.

    I agree. If I needed a boot like that, those would probably be my first choice.

    The Carmina Rain last is pretty close to a perfect fit for me at 8UK (Rain lasted balmorals close almost all the way without overlapping at the seam for me). Almost all of my AE's are 9D and I would say most of them fit well. The 1 & 5 lasts work better for me than 4 and 7 due to more height at the toe box, but otherwise fits at 9D.
