Really? A shoe width 101 lesson? with wrong/incorrect/subjective materials? I think you largely underestimate how much regular posters in this forum know. Like most people on here you make too much of a fuss about lasts and think that if a certain size on a particulat last doesn't fit that you can just go up or down a size or side to side on a width. The last has more to do with the shape of the shoe and some people simply cannot wear shoes made on certain lasts even...

PM to place. That doesn't even make any sense. Being new on some blog just means that you don't know who I am or what I know. Look at the average age of the people here and you'll see it's under 30...

I just looked it up in my dictionary which is 50 years old and that is the only correct pronunciation. But who knows. People in the US have been mispronouncing it for so long that sometimes the wrong pronunciation becomes the norm and may even be found in new dictionaries.

Just having to pack the item in a box and mailing it from the post office takes time. The box may cost $10 and your time, say 1/2 hr is another...
