Spencert,
One other option (if you are very keen on AM's Argentum handwelted option) is that you could go for his test shoe + final shoe "package".

He will email you instructions on how to measure your feet, and based on those measurements, adjusts the lasts and constructs a pair of Goodyear welted test shoes for you. The shoes are finished to his Aeris line specs.

After you provide feedback on the fit, he goes on to make the final shoes (handwelted). So you get two pairs of shoes. And a personal last.

Get ready to spend a bit for this option though.

Nice!

May I ask what are those pants?
Focus! This is a shoe thread.

Psst, its a wool/hemp fabric in a hopsack-ish weave. (Even i'm not sure what weave it is)

Hi TM, yes I got the quote and went that path. Your are right that this option is quite a bit more. May revisit further down the road. Actually mostly influenced by your posts on AMs. Many thanks! Haha

In the end, still went for the Argentum welted last. I would recommend to go down to Jackson's showroom to try out sizes before pulling the trigger. Very friendly chap and doing the business as a hobby. Fitting is on the tight side. Hope the breaking in period is not too painful....

Brogued cap toe Oxford with medallion. Finished in an alluring brogues color.

Argentum welted
Box calf in Brogues color
Argentum Soft Square last
Standard E width
Single leather sole
Come with dust bags
Style reference "753" - part of Argentum Welted series. Handmade in Airola, Italy.

Thanks guys for all your inputs!

Couldn't you have taken half size up if you needed to stretch the shoes? your small toes seems little squashed

Too big... got heel slip. Alternatively, can take F width but that has to be ordered direct from AM.

Hi guys, Was wondering what are the options for wide feet. Most retail stores dont have this option. Currently wearing loake 1880 monkstraps in Uk7.5 but it hurts to wear them for long.

Try wider width, i remember Loake or British brands has G width.

Was quoted $40 for resole at shukey. Its for my faux leather shoe which i wear to work daily.
Is it worth it or are there better options?
