    I was seeking a new captoe and I really like the look of the AS Armfields.

    However, a question about sizing and fit. In the pairs I have tried, my heel tends to slip up/down slightly no matter what size of these shoes I wear.

    Is this common or can anyone explain this? Might the shoes eventually fit me like gloves or should I perhaps just opt for another brand?

    Thanks.

    Anyone? Shamelessly bumping this.

    I tend to agree with your assessment on the fit and the sliding. I don't have the model you are speaking of, however, I do own several AS pairs, to include the Moore Cap Toe. And while I notice the occasional slide towards the heel area, it has never been much of an issue in my mind as it relates to comfort or fit.

    I hope this helps.

    I guess you have rather thin heels.

    Most asians have thin heels than most white men do.

    I have a couple of sargents and I have the same problem. Not as much as you I persume but once my feet get swollen from a couple of walks, I barely notice it. They tend to run a bit large in the heels than other shoes such as CJ, Church's, etc

    Thread's a bit old but I concur with the above assessments. My feet's insteps are also not as high as the shoe, which makes it a tad worse (724 Moore). Thicker socks help but as the shoe expands late in the day, it does feel a little bit more loose. The remaining areas of the shoes however are perfect.
