    Can anyone speak to the sizing difference if any between the Players shoe and any shoes on the 5 last? Thanks.

    my experience is that you size up half with the players shoes compared to the 5 last.

    i had a casual conversation with one of the AE SA's the other day and he also agreed but i wasn't sure if he agreed just for the sake of it or he truly agreed (he was in the process of selling me a pair of shoes).

    I wear the same size in both, and both fit well. I would not go down in width, as the toe box may get cramped.

    Beautiful. I will have to get a pair of cordovan PTBs one of these days. How is the sizing compared to the 5 last?

    Thank you! I have black, burgundy and brown (C&J for Ralph Lauren) these days and they get plenty of wear.

    I am a 12d in these and a 12d or 11.5e in 5 last shoes (highly dependent on the shoe, I have found). 11.5d Barrie last in the Alden world, for what it's worth.

    Those black shell Leeds do look great. I had them on in the AE store. Even though I had them on with an outfit I normally wouldn't wear them with, I really liked them.

    I finally got my Strands in 10.5E. They feel more comfortable than the 11D's that I originally had...The heel is a little bigger, but the toe and overall fit feels much better.
    Would it be the same size in Long Branch boots?

    Excited to see pictures of everyone's 2 for $250 pickups after today. I recently picked up a pair of shells, so I don't think I'll be getting any this time around.

    What was the issue with the 11D? Too long? Too tight in the toes? Both?

    Others have commented and I generally agree that "browns" are more versatile however in this particular shoe I happen to think that black is my favorite color aesthetically.

    Mainly just too tight in the toes, and top of my foot...

    Maiden voyage for the Spiaggias. I like the stock red laces on it but wanted to tone it down a bit today so I switched them out for some navy laces.
