    There's a 15% sale for belts which is not much different than last months sale where everything was at least 15% off.

    Have there been better sales on belts? Are they cheaper at the AE outlets?

    Looks real good! I think you gambled right by not going with the players. Crossing my fingers I can work my issues with mine out.

    Riddle me this:

    How to explain calf Patriots in 10EEE, initially very tight, then after break in are a very comfortable fit.

    Vs.

    Cordovan Patriots of the same size, in which both shoes are loose. The right foot is falling out of the shoe, ie feels too long and too wide. Left shoe is a looser fit vs its calf counterpart, but I would not necessarily size down.

    The Cordovan's were sent back to be relasted. AE indicates that they both measure true at 10EEE.

    AE is giving me the option of refund, having them redone, or sizing down to 10E or 9.5EEE.

    Cordovan generally tends to be more loose-fitting than the calf.

    True. The issue is with such a vast difference in perceived size between the two shoes described how do we explain AE's statement that the shoes are true to size?

    Thank you! I think the rolled edges are my favorite part.

    The strand was certainly a much safer bet since the 5 last was easy to size for me. The last on the players made me chicken out.

    Might I suggest trying to rub a spoon or deer bone over the toe with it filled out on the inside? It might mitigate the rolling. Good luck!

    Come on now sir... thats just TOO EASY!

    ... but I appreciate you throwing me a bone!

    and yes, if AE was a halfway decent company they would have a "try this shoe on virtually" option for every shoe.

    I received an email about the sale. 15% off belts thru 11/20 with a personal promo code. I'd like to get one of the perforated belts but they're rather expensive even with 15% off. If there are better sales, I can wait.

    I have pair of calf Players that are creasing on the cap/wingtip also. Oddly, I am getting nice creasing on the vamp. I just figured the last wasn't made for my foot. I have had great success with just about every other last AE makes. Especially the 5.

    Which coupon? The 30SHOES1 coupon is not valid for these shoes.
