I might try that, i'll see what Jville says when I give them a call. Good to know, maybe this will be the case for me. If so, just another case of great customer service from AE. Also, does anyone here find that the shell version of a shoe fits bigger than the calf version? the dalton in 12D in calf for me was snug at first, and has now stretched to be the perfect fit. But the shell dalton in 12E was way way way bigger. Even with wool socks, it wasn't snug. Seems like it shouldnt has increased in girth so much with only one size up in width.
