I'm looking to get a pair of AE Fairfax. I'm normally a 13D. What size would you recommend in the Fairfax?

Thanks

edit: I've never owned an AE shoe.

E usually runs true to size. I recommend you go to AE site and look at their Page that details each last and see which description fits your foot the best. Otherwise go visit a AE dealer or Retail location and try on each last and see what appeals to you/fits.

The Fairfax was on the #5 last. This is A-E's longest, narrowest last. Some men find they have to go to a size slightly shorter and wider than their normal size to get a good fit with the #5 last. However, I am not among them. My Fairfaxes (in chestnut and merlot) are a good fit on me in my normal size, which also happens to be 13D.

Excellent! Thanks to the both of you. There are no AE stores around here but there is one place that carries a few AE's. Since it's a 5 last I'll try on the Park Avenue for sizing and order the Fairfax online.
