With any pair of shoes (or more specifically feet), you need to find the fit that works. What I like most about AE shoes, boots, etc, is the customer service and infinite sizes available. I am fortunate to live nearby a retail store and have established a rapport with the sales manager. Excellent service! Not every style fits my foot, but that is because AE shoes come in over twenty or so lasts. Each last has a different fit and style. I think when reviewing shoes for others' benefit, it would be sincere to state why the fit didn't work for you rather than disparage a company that is downright phenomenal! All AE shoes are made in USA by Americans, isn't that in and of itself great? Also, AE stands behind every product they sell with unmatched customer service. The clientele AE serves would not except anything less in that regard and that is why AE is such a great company, they understand service and product are inseparable. So on to these boots... This style of boot is tight fitting, but more snug than tight. They should be. They aren't meant for stopping around in the woods or through snow storms, though I would imagine they would serve you well in the short term in either case. These boots are stylish and look great with both dress jeans or dress pants. All AE shoes and boots will also require a break in period. Eventually, the boots conform to your feet and will be very comfortable. Leather gives over time and this is true with any shoe. Hope this review helps.

Beautiful and timeless. A great investment. Had to return for half size smaller. Runs a bit big.

Received this as a gift. Very nice leather, but the edges of the buckle are very sharp and cut into my stomach. Very uncomfortable and poor buckle design.

The sole is already delaminating in front on one shoe. I am losing faith in Allen-Edmonds shoes. Have been a loyal customer through many Park Avenues and Waldens for over 20 years.

What is going on with the reviewers around here? Again we have someone not happy with the fit. So return them! That's what Zappos is for. If you tried two or three different sizes and the *style* isn't right for your foot, say so. And then you rate the style only 3 stars? So why did you buy them in the first place! Hilarious.

Responding to the previous reviewer: A mistaken size is not a reason for knocking stars off your review. You seem to like the shoe itself, that should be the basis for your review (sounds like a 5). But to take 2 stars off for the sizing is to mistake the purpose of reviewing the shoe. You can return the shoe (that's the whole point of Zappos) and get your accurate size. Sheesh.

The Allen-Edmonds Carlyle is quite simply one of the best fitting and most attractive pairs of shoes I have ever owned. That said, I'm mostly responding to the other reviews of this shoe. One person says they're replacing the same shoe from 25 years ago. Allen-Edmonds only started making the Carlyle around 2013, so unless you're Doctor Who, I question the accuracy of your comment. Someone else says that Allen-Edmonds doesn't make the shoe in a wide enough width for him. I suppose that's possible, but the Carlyle comes in widths up to EEE, and, in general, Allen-Edmonds makes shoes in more widths than most manufacturers, so it's not like it's going to be better most anywhere else. The last person says that the sole at the toe is wearing more quickly than his older pairs of Allen-Edmonds shoes. Well, the Carlyle uses a last that is pointier than most Allen-Edmonds shoes, which is going to create more wear on the toe. If you don't like how pointy shoes wear, don't buy pointy shoes.

The stitching was slightly off. I was expecting a leather sole. They were a little large, but I still love Allen Edmonds.

These are beautifully made shoes. A little stiff at first. Takes a few days to break them in. Very attractive with dress pants and comfortable all day long. Nice to know American shoe manufacturing is alive and well!

These are fine shoes. I tried to replace same of 25 years ago. The sole was much stiffer. That is unacceptable. I am going to refurbish my old ones.

Good fit, as advertised. I have wide feet and it's hard to find good shoes that fit. They look ok. Note it's rubber soles. Also important that I can fit my orthotics in the shoes.

Great shoes, they are very comfortable and stylish. This is my 3rd pair of Allen Edmonds and they are well made and last for years. I can wear these shoes all day and my feet do not hurt at all.

These shoes are excellent. I tried to buy cheaper versions of the same style but the quality trade off was too disappointing. These hand made babies are the real deal and worth every penny!

I wanted to like these shoes, but they are a hit and miss fit for me even at 3E. Midday it is fine but any swelling of the foot and it is too tight. It is a slightly wider fit than the Park Aves that I returned for the same reason. The leather is soft and breaks in easily but the footbed itself just is not wide enough. I should note that Allen Edmunds measured me at a 2E but was very kind with my first return even though the shoe was worn. Too bad I cannot return these as well. They are good looking but I am done with giving them my money.

Wonderful shoes - high quality, high comfort. Look amazing on. My husband has wide feet and thinks theses shoes in wide feel like slippers. Expensive but worth it.

The shoes are very beautiful and all but the width is not a true D. They run tighter across the instep and are uncomfortable.

Really nice shoes. Typical of Allen Edmonds, it was hard to throw down this type of money on shoes, but, these are worth every dime. You get what you pay for. I love these shoes. They are very comfortable. The quality is exceptional!

These are great looking and very comfortable once broken in. It took me a few rounds of orders through Zappos before getting the right size, largely because the width really matters and affects the volume of the shoe. This will affect the crease and overall look of the shoe. It is worth getting your foot measured somewhere to get the right shoe. Neither an 11½D or 11D fit me right and I finally got measured and realized that I needed an 11½C, which fits perfectly.

These shoes are excellent. They may take several full day wears to break in but they will be worth it. Very light in addition to being a handsome oxford. The sole is a composite which makes the shoe light. If you wear it out, the bonus is the shoe is recraftable through Allen Edmonds so if you want to put a leather sole on in the future you can do that.

This is a great shoe: very stylish, excellent for a formal occasion or day-to-day use if you work in a more formal setting. This is probably the most comfortable dress shoe I've owned, including AEs. For the best fit, I would suggest visiting an AR store and getting measured. Once you know your size, get back to Zappos and buy all your shoes here. For reference, I find the Delrays slightly more spacious than the Fifth Street and other AE shoes built on the 65 last, at least in width size B, which is what I wear. Be sure to get yourself a good set of shoe trees with these and avoid wearing them consecutive days in a row and you will be very happy this shoe. Lastly, it took about 2-3 wears until the cork soles molded to my feet, which is a moderate break in period (in my view).

Was not happy with this boot, very tight. I did twice bring to a local shoe specialist in order to stretch, no luck. The lacing top three would not stay in place, continue to unlace themselves. I normally do not have problems & can wear most brand shoes right out of the box, not these.
