Honestly, I think that's fine, and will only get better as they break in. Much wider and I'd be iffy too, but...After a long wait, the Plymouth has landed. This is Alden Madison’s revamp of the 974 on the Plaza last. I’m a 9.5E on the Hampton with full-facings closure and assumed that I’d have no trouble with that size on the Plaza, but as evidenced by the attached photo: no dice.
Here’s hoping they stock EE (or maybe even EEE, but I’m not holding my breath).
Didn’t expect the waist on the Plaza to be so narrow compared the Hampton, but the Plaza fit seems reminiscent of the Allen Edmonds 65 last for my foot. I’ll post better pictures, assuming I can get the fit right.
Damn this flat, high-instep foot of mine!View attachment 1254495
Ooops - the perils of responding while catching up. It's a shame they're not working out.I hear you on these points and I really appreciate the input, but the waist of the shoe is just too narrow for my wide, flat foot. The facings gap is definitely acceptable, as I expect that it would close after the footbed is broken in, but my nonexistent arch feels like it is being tightly gripped by the shoe even when loosely laced.
I can attest to having too much room as a negative, as my Hampton 9.5Es are almost too roomy in the toes/ball area. I easily get a full closure with most dress socks, so I wish that they were more narrow.
The recommendation from the shop was that I probably need the EE, but that’s not available at the moment and won’t be unless/until they re-order the makeup. I’m on the list in the event that they do, but hey, at least I now know my plaza size, so I’ve got that going for me!Ooops - the perils of responding while catching up. It's a shame they're not working out.
Fantastic looking Whiskey Boats. Looking just stellar today and nice to see the seasons transitioning....following our good Mayor on Whiskey Wednesday here. I know its a layup sort of pic what with the leaf in frame. However, I have a couple century-old sugar maples outside my front door so there will be plenty more leaves in my shoe pics as the weather cools.
