I see some recent discussion about the Saukville boots. I've never seen them before today on the AE site. I see they have a grey leather version, which is very similar to the Long Branch in grey. Is this a replacement of that boot but with a softer sole?
I very recently got these and worn about 6 times so far. The way the creasing is forming so close to the broguing is kind of perplexing. Any thoughts?
I have narrow feet (B-ish), but also a low instep. I run into problems because if I go narrow enough to get decent snugness across the top of the arch, the toe area is too narrow and my pinky toe pays the price. Alternatively, if I stay wide enough for the toes, its too loose elsewhere. This varies between lasts, but it seems pretty universal in what I've tried so far. Any suggestions? I can use tongue pads which helps a bit, just looking for other opinions. 
Perhaps not the right place to ask this, but has anyone shipped a pair of shoes/boots across the Canadian/US border? Issues I should know about?   I remember once I shipped a watch strap and it was a huge amount of paperwork because it was leather.    Edit: oh, and happy Monday 
Thinking about picking up a pair of the Long Branch boots. Any input on the dark brown vs the golden cxl? I've not had a chance to see either in person.    Secondly, I would assume the sizing is the same as the Dalton, can anyone confirm?
Last question (hopefully) on these re: fit.    This is where the ball of my foot sits. The large bone at the joint is what I am touching. Is this where it should be?  
I had considered that but I think they would be too short. The ball of my foot is at the right spot in the 10B, so I'm worried going down length would be problematic. Not that it matters, but my foot length measures as 11 on the brannock with a heel to ball of 10.5, so long toes I guess.I tried on an friends 10D Strand and they were much too wide, so I went with the 10B. I guess i underestimated how much narrower going down 2 widths would be. Live and learn!If anyone wants...
 Were yours a special order?
These guys showed up today, sadly they are too narrow. These are a 10B. Not sure whether to go with a C or D width. Any input based solely on the appearance of the lacing?    The colour is amazingly different depending on the light. Goes from light blue to nearly black.           
I have a VERY stupid question:    General advice seems to be that the widest part of the foot align with the widest part of the shoe. Does anyone have a diagram/picture or something to illustrate exactly where things should line up (generally)?   I know its not a perfect science, I was just wondering how other's feet align inside their shoes. I find that because I have long toes it is difficult for me to figure out where the "big toe joint" should line up in the shoe.
