    Just out of curiosity: for those who have/had AEs, how did the fit compared to Aldens? I wore my pebble grain boots today on the Barrie last in size 8. I tried on the Park Ave and Strand in 8.5, and lengthwise they fit well. But the shoes were kind of narrow. The sales rep told me the last on the Park Ave and Strand were 'normal' and not narrow by design.



    Also: besides adding a thicker insole and wearing thicker socks, is there anything else I can do to help make my suede Aldens on a Modified last fit better? I get shuffling at the heel. They fit quite bigger than my Barrie and Trubalance lasted shoes. I suspect the thin material of suede may be the culprit to give the shoes more space inside.

    sales rep told you wrong. AE #5 last is narrow

    "5 Last (65)
    This is the longest in length of all of our lasts; best for a long, narrow foot."

    I wouldn't be surprised. He was probably a standard Nordstrom salesman, not a shoe guru. He said they were the most popular sellers and I should jump on them. I told them I would need the approval of my internet friends first, haha. JK on the latter part.

    If you're referring to the first pair of boots in the CXL list, they are Leathersoul's Ultimate Jumper Boot that came out this past February. Great looking boot.
