    My Sanfords fit pretty true to width. The 7 last feels a bit wider than a 5 last shoe in the same size to me.

    Although the 7 last is wider around the heel and the ball of the foot, I feel like the toe area is more cramped than the 5 due to the "clipped" toe. The shoe overall is also shorter, so your pinky toe might not agree with the clipped toe style...at least this has been my experience with the macneil

    Check out the John Lobb store there since you're already at the mall. One of the SA there generously spent about an hour of his time to educate me & to let me try out the different shoe lasts for proper fit. Their 7000 last was the best for for me. When budget allows, I will go back for one of their shoes.

    They have a JOHN LOBB store there! Definitely dropping by the next time I'm in SoCal. Don't think it was there when I lived in HB...

    Maybe that's why my Shell Strands fit a little better than my 5th street boots.

    Forgot what the SA told me but I think they have been there for about 5 years or so (?). The JL store is close to the AE store. The JL store is on the 2nd level heading towards Nordstrom. NYC is where the other JL store for the USA.

    Thank you.

    I recently bought a used pair of Sanfords online size 6.5D. They actually feel very nice. As mentioned before, I have flat feet. And by flat feet I mean ZERO arch. It just so happens that is where I feel a bit of discomfort in the Sanford (in the arch that is). I'm wondering if sizing up to the E width will help this without compromising the fit around other parts of the shoe.

    Any (more) thoughts?

    Nordstrom doesn't have a 2 for 1 sale. Its AE a couple times a year I believe.

    This forum is having a bit of a drought of AEs in the wild, so I thought I'd post a (crappy iPhone) pic of my Neumok's, worn for the first time.

    They come with 2 pairs of laces: green and brown (the laces used in the picture).

    I see. Try the green laces if appropriate for your circumstances.
