These shoes are SO good. The craftsman's ship is amazing, the quality, the look. *chef's kiss*
However, sizing was way off for me. Im a solid US 8 in shoes and have never purchased a wide pair of shoes in my life. The 38 in these were so tight I couldn't even stand up. I sent an email and the A.S. team gave me some good info. After 3 months of waiting for a restock I went with a 39W. Now that I've worn them a few times, part of me thinks a 38.5W would have been better for length since my heel slips but I was worried at 38.5W toe box would have been too tight. Im not sure why i've had such a sizing issue and i'm a bit bummed about it since all the other reviews are so spot on with their sizes but theres nothing to be done now since i've worn them. I've been playing around with insole to see if I can fix the heel slip issue. Im hoping they also become more comfortable as everyone claims. My feet don't necessarily hurt by the end of the day but I find its the actual walking in them if that makes sense. Anyway, this wont stop me from another purchase, I've already got my eye on my next pair. I'll just have to make sure the size works before wearing them outside.
