    They did a great job on those for you. Wheeling pretty much takes every shoe to newer heights.

    VERY DISAPPOINTED with the customer service with Allen edmonds....Placed an order for 2 shoes and 2 size medium shoe trees..
    two weeks later, received the shoe and only one Shoe tree...contacted them and they sent me another one for their mistake. A week later, I received a size SMALL shoe tree and there was only one inside...last I remember they do sell shoes in pairs right....complete mess...

    Very disappointed with their service and last time I will ever order from Allen Edmonds via phone or online..

    No it's not. The fact that you ran to the internet to complain says it all, lol...

    I wear 7.5EE in Strand and McAllister. I have an Elgin (similar in fit to McTavish) in 7.5E and they are big. The width is actually okay going down one but the shoes slip quite a bit. If I compare the length of the 7.5E Elgin to the 7.5EE McAllister, the Elgin is noticeably longer. I'm thinking 7EE would be a good size for me so perhaps going half size down and same width would work for you. I'm sure everyone's experience may vary slightly.

    Go 1/2 size down from your usual 5 last size, and keep the same width. I wear 9E in McTavishes and Neumoks and 9.5E in calf Strands and Park/Fifth Avenues.

    I agree with the above posts, a half size down in the same width.

    Those are fantastic! Apologies if you've answered this, but are they calf or shell? Colour? Thanks!

    Some of my recent purchases came with white shoe bags instead of red. Is this something new?

    If you buy neatsfoot oil make sure it is pure or 100%. Neatsfoot compound is blended with petroleum oils
