They do offer last adjustments in their semi bespoke option. They meassure your feet and adapt the last of your choice to fit your meassurements. Price is €620, including making of the last and three piece lasted trees, VAT included. A steal!Edit. This is the risk of answering a post before reading the thread to the end...answering what has already been answered.
I have a similar creasing on a F-lasted suede captoe. My impression is, as pointed out earlier, that it is to blamed to the short toe stiffener because the shoe fit great.I wear it with a smile anyway :-)
I too can recommend the Hannovers. Stand up well to the Swedish winter that I guess is similar to the Canadian one. It is not a very warm boot though.In sizing, I have 8.5US in Barrie and 7.5UK in the Hannover 87 last.
Thanx for a truely nice "kvällsmys" at Skoaktiebolaget tonite Patrik. All four new Carmina boots where nice, with the antique grain jumper boot on top.
And don't forgot to put my name on a pair of the DOAK Dovers for March 😉
