    Awesome shoes; you should get them out more often!

    Thanks! Even though they are a balmoral, they are an oiled leather so I don't think I would wear them with a suit. So sunny days and pair them with no jeans works for me. Being a young wipper snapper I dont do socks and they feel great.

    I know I feel the same way which is why I have only worn them twice! The color is actually a light grey and really pops with the black sole and stitching in person.

    My Burgundy Shell Cambridges came in today.

    Flaws are a lot less noticeable than on my walnut shell Strands.

    Fresh out of the box

    It looks like someone tried them on though, as you can already see creasing. It didn't look like anyone tried on my Strands, but those are showing very light creases.

    First pair of AE shoes...Walnut Strands. Sadly, they were WAY too big. The printable size form from the AE website was not even close to accurate for me. It measured as a 14.5. so I got 15. They are a good 1.5-2" too long, to the point my heel is coming out. Good news, AE is overnighting me a 14...now that is customer service!

    I don't know what to do about sizing in Kenilworths, my first dress shoes for my upcoming wedding.
    My sneakers size is 11, in Prada and To Boot New York I am 10, but I tried Kenilworths and it's totally different sizing.

    In 9.5D my foot is sliding at the heel, up and down as I walk, but not coming out of the shoe.
    In 9D, the heel is just barelly moving as I walk, but the shoe is very fit, I feel it's as snug as it can be.
    My worry is I want to order from this forum member, but I'm afraid that after few hours of walking my feet might start hurting, and I wouldn't want that on a wedding day.

    The length is fine, it's the width, but according to the AE chart I have a narrow foot :)
    How big of a jump is it from E to D ? The local stores in Canada only have D sizing in stock.

    I thought the same thing but the doubles I have have held up for several years, I don't have anymore because I was moving something after work for a friend and it cut into the leather toe :embar:
    Long story short, I did not notice any wear differences between the two straps using your method.

    The lacing is too wide, you need a larger size

    What cream/polish do you guys recommend for navy calf, or shall I go for a neutral polish? I just scored MacNeils in navy. Also got another pair of Moras but I missed the UPS guy today.
