    I have many Allen edmunds shoes. 11 1/2 C. Would like to try this dark blue suede derby shoes. Have always found a D too wide. Do the B have give?

    Asked by: Jmcianciolo
    Hi Joseph. Each style can fit differently based on the contours of your feet, so it’s difficult to recommend a size via email and guarantee a proper fit. Typically, we recommend trying the same size you usually wear and judging the fit based on how comfortable you feel in the shoes. If possible, we’d love to have you visit an Allen Edmonds retail store or one of our retail partners for a professional fitting. Our associates are trained to help you find the right fit for the various lasts and styles we offer. Also, keep in mind that products purchased on may be returned within 90 days, as long as the item is unworn and accompanied by the packing slip (we advise trying the shoes on a carpeted surface to keep them in returnable condition).

    Insole and resoling

    I think this has a removable insole to accommodate custom orthotics. True? Also, following up on a prior question. Can the soles be resoled with rubber down the road? Love the nomad line, hope you bring out a white buck.
    Asked by: Dnp
    I bought a pair of white bucks (Nomads) last year (2018) from AE. They fit and perform as I expected. I’ve purchased over ten pairs of AE and have been very pleased with each. Several have been recrafted once or twice. Thanks.

    The Nomad is offered in universal widths, B (narrow) D (Medium) and EEE (wide). At Allen Edmonds, we believe the right fit is vitally important.
