Thanks for trying.

to me, king monks look much better with fewer rolls ... Mac/ATLVol > DonL
^ You mean "Sportsman" bag.
I picked up this pair of Kennebunks from East Dane earlier in Spring ... they are replacing a 15-year old pair of black Roots Tuff boots.
My current Alden rotation includes the following:8.5D Grant boot (4065)8.5D JCrew PCT boot8.5D Hampton shoe (9016)8D Barrie shoe (975)The 8.5D Grant is my most snug fitting Alden (at the ball).For you, an 8E might be a good start ... but don't rule out an 8.5D.As an aside, I once owned an 8D Trubalance boot (CXL Indy) ... but a combination of the last and stretch of CXL resulted in very unsightly pinky-toe bulging.
That C width designation is most certainly for the ball of the foot and not the heel.
Here's another great deal if you're a size 9 ... Eastland MIM Belfast in Brown ... $149 (last pair). http://www.charlieandlee.com/collections/mens-mens-shoes/products/eastland-belfast-usa-kiltie-boot-in-brown
That's a fine transformation from flat burgundy to glossy caramel.
If you're not getting any blisters and your shoes are not displaying any odd creases or gapping issues (all indicative of sizing issues), then you've got the correct size for the lasts that you have.
