    The relaxed fit has added space in the toe box. This extra room allows for thicker socks and foot expansion that occurs at the end of the day or during a long flight.

    Ask & Answer
    Nomad Suede Plain-toe Derby is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 4.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice looking shoe - runs small These are great looking shoes, but there are some size issues. I normally wear a 9.5 to 10 D or E width. I had to get this shoe in a 10.5 because a 10 was too small. I found that to be odd since the Nomad is described as a "relaxed fit" shoe. A couple of years ago I had to get a 10.5 in a pair of the Long Branch wingtip boots I bought. The store was out of size 10 so I had a pair shipped to my home and they had to go back for the 10.5. Meanwhile I have a pair of Park Avenue cap toes in a 9.5 and a pair of Strand Weave cap toes in size 10. It seems AE's sizing is all over the lot and I recommend trying them on in the store if at all possible. One other problem with this shoe as with several other AE shoes is the limited number of widths available. If a D doesn't do it the next width is EEE which is annoying because a 10E might have fit better.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A unique alternative to brown casual shoes. I love the gray color, it is a great alternative to the brown casual shoe look. Very comfortable. You need this shoe.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great for half a day. Loved my new Allen Edmunds, right up till the heal came apart on day 1. They fit well and looked sharp, but holy cow I didn't expect this to happen. I have several pair of AE; it's a brand I trust.

    What is the 42N last? I see only a 42 last listed.

    Asked by: Anonymous
    Hello, The 42N last is similar to the 42 last. However, it is a little bit more room than the 42 last. We hope this helps!

    Surrey versus Nomad suede shoes

    What is the difference, other than the soles, between the Nomad and Surrey suede shoes
    Asked by: Anonymous
    Thank you for reaching out to us. While the Nomad Suede Plain-toe Derby and the Surrey Derby Shoe are similar, they are also very different shoes. The Nomad Suede Plain-toe Derby is made on the 42N last, has a removable LightForm™ Insole with perforated footbed (perfect for those who use orthotics), and has a Feather Welt™ for lightweight shock-absorption. The Surrey Derby Shoe is made on the 1757 last, is weatherproof with a non removable sole, and is made with a 360-degree Goodyear Welted construction. We hope this is helpful!

    I wear UK size 9.5. What’s the equivalent in American sizing?

    Asked by: Suave57
    The UK/US size is listed as 9.5/10, but I found that these shoes run small. I had to get a US 10.5 when I normally wear a 9.5 to 10.

    How is this shoe different from the previous Nomad suede derby? Is it using the same C.F. Stead Suede Upper?

    Asked by: Anonymous
    We have had quite a few different versions of the Nomad, so we apologize we are unsure which you are referring to. In general, when discontinued styles are reintroduced, the main differences are the colors offered or possibly the type of sole featured which are redesigned based on current trends or customer feedback. The suede used on this style is not from C.F. Stead. Feel free to contact us again if your have other questions.
