How is the instep on these? I typically go up to e width due to my instep but I am tempted to try these at that price.
I have a high instep and find the Leo better than Aldens Barrie last in the same size.

I am a 9E in Allen Edmonds. Should I go with an 8 1/2D or E in Grant Stone?

Which Allen Edmonds shoes do you take a 9E in? The fit of their lasts is all over the place.

Without knowing more, I might suggest avoiding the 8 1/2D and opting for a 8 1/2E or 9D (assuming you are looking at the Leo-lasted pair). Grant Stone sizing can change a little if you go with a loafer, chelsea, or their new Brass Boot.

If you are going from an AE dress shoe to a GS boot, also consider accounting for thicker socks.
