    I would advise against it unless you go down a half size at the same time and not have a length issue.

    feet are all different, and shoes can vary from specimen to specimen, and snug for you might be loose for someone else. another person who also likes the same shoe in the same width might have a very different experience of a second shoe in a different width. you really can't get meaningful answers to questions like the one you posted. if you are unsure, buy two sizes and return the ones that seem like they will not fit as well in six months. if you can't buy both sizes, make sure you can return the shoes for a full refund. or roll the dice and learn by trial and error. note though, in reference to the above advice, that a 9.5E should be a lot wider than a 10D. out a width and down a length will give you about 2/3rds the additional width. so the width on a 9.5E will be closer to the width on a 10E than the width on a 10D. see this

    The Clifton is actually "shoe of the month" over at the AE outlet in Freeport, Maine. I think it is something like $179 or something plus shipping and tax. It's really a steal at that price.

    Do you need a code or something to get the Clifton at that price (from the Maine outlet)? I'd love a 10.5 D in chestnut.

    I tried on a pair of Park Avenues and I fit a 7E pretty well. However, it seems that the Park Avenue last is their slimmest and longest. Can I assume I would fit best in a pair of 7.5D Cliftons? I'm generally a 7.5.

    Yeah, it looks as if the deal is on at all the outlets. I got the same notice from Cabazon.

    Whatever fits you. Don't try to extrapolate. Some would tell you 11E (a bit shorter and wider). For me the PA and other shoes on its #5 last fit me well in my normal size as do most shoes on the #1 last, #4, old #8 and old #0. New #0 seems okay for me as well.

    When I view side by side comparisons like this, it makes me glad that I have AEs versus the more expensive shoes. In most cases, the proverbial 'clunkiness' attributed to AE just doesn't hold true, in my opinion. AE just seems to be a great shoe for the money.
