Looks like a Strand to my very untrained eye, but the current model's design of perforation on the toe is different, and the current strand does not have perforations on the top edge of the tongue.

Any help is appreciated! Thanks.

Believe that is the Sanford on the 7-last, which A-E has reintroduced this year.

Thanks, guys.

If I am a 10D on the 5 last, am I a 10D on the 7 last? Or is this too person-specific to make generalizations?

I'm sure that's something of a n00b question, so any helpful links would be great.

....I may just go up to the Madison Ave AE store and try on all of the lasts?...

I do feel bad taking that option since I do not intend on buying anything there (or really anything for full retail or even close to it, anywhere, since I have months to amass my work shoe collection). Seems like a decent amount of work for an SA that will not get anything out of me.
