    Nomad Buck Suede Derby is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 557.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from People will talk I have numerous Strandmocks from AE. I have enjoyed all of them. I purchased these in the slate grey Kudu Suede . With the Dainite Rubber Sole you will find these to be a very soft walk what a joy. I do think this pair is just a bit wider than my other Strandmocks. The reason I titled my review sumery the way I did as I have had people comment on these shoes almost every time I have worn them. Enjoy

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great fit comfortable shoes Perfect fit and style comfortable for even a hard to fit 16 EEE These shoes fit great and are just as comfortable as a pair I’ve had for years.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautifully crafted, comfortable shoe This is a great looking shoe. I don't have anything else like them. After about a day or two of breaking them in, they felt great. These look great with jeans, chinos or any dress casual outfit you can imagine. My daughter said the color was ombre - IDK but the brown does go from a dark to a light in parts and it looks great. Craftsmanship is first rate. Spending less time in suits these days means I'm wearing these shoes several days a week. Not saying you couldn't match these well with a suit, but I haven't tried it yet.

    How's the support and arch support in this style?

    Asked by: Nik
    Thank you for your inquiry! The Strandmok Cap-Toe Oxford with Dainite Rubber Sole is made on the 65 Last (often known simply as the 5) which is our most popular, classic-fitting last. It’s also one of our longest with a sleek, narrow look that’s normally a good fit for those with high arches. We hope you'll find this information helpful!

    welted 65 last

    A few years ago I bought a pair of AE shoes, welted on the 65 last. I had to buy them in a size much smaller and wider than I usually do, but they fit me fine. I am thinking of buying another pair of AE shoes, also welted on the 65 last. Should I buy the same size? Do all AE shoes welted on the 65 last ft the same way? Normally, I wear an 8E in AE shoes.
    Asked by: Ian
    We suggest trying the same size and go from there. Keep in mind, it's recommended to be fitted periodically as feet change in shape overtime. If you are unable to visit a store, we offer a 90 day returns policy. Thank you for your question!

    Can I have the Strandmok cap toe Oxford in a brown boot with the black rubber lug sole?

    Asked by: PapaJames

    Are these still made in the US?

    Received a pair of the brown firsts this weekend. There is no marking on the insole, rest of the shoe or box indicating location of manufacture. Website states it is, but on all of my other American made AEs it is indicated, while the two pair I own manufactured outside the US do not indicate a place of manufacture.
