    I'm about to purchase my first dress shoes from Allen Edmonds, moving up from department shoes that cost $50, however I have no idea what size I should purchase.

    Since I live overseas I'm going to have to purchase from Amazon and shipping + return shipping costs are gonna cost a lot, so I'd like to get the sizing right before I pull the trigger. I also tried emailing AE my measurements and they replied saying they do not provide sizes through email or phone and urged me to go to one of their local shops.

    I've got my eyes set on the Park Avenue and if I'm not mistaken it is in Last 5.

    My foot measurements (For reference, attached to this post is a photo of the traced paper):

    Length - 26.3cm/10.35in.
    Width - 11.1cm/4.37in. (photo says 11.0cm but I measured again it's actually 11.1cm, if that makes a difference)

    I stepped on a piece of paper with my socks on, stood up and traced around my foot.

    Any help would be fantastic!

    This link may be of use to you: Allen Edmonds Fit Guide

    The "Shoe Fit Guide" on the right of the page has a 1:1 printout that will be useful in finding the correct size. To note, they recommend having a second person help you when measuring, this is advice you should follow.

    Hi thanks for the help!

    I've followed the instructions and my measurements areis 9 and W8, so that should put me at a size 9E. So for the Park Avenue should I get the 8.5E? The next step in width would be 8.5EEE and I feel that would be too wide.

    Thanks again for the help!

    Thanks for the help!

    I just followed the instructions and measured by foot. The measurements came at a 9 and W8, so following the chart that puts me at a size 9E. And since I want to get the Park Avenues from what I read, I should get a half size down and 1 width up. However since the next step in width would be EEE I suppose I should get size 8.5E?
