Union Works is possibly the best shoe repair shop (in the world). There attention to detail is bar none. There are also numerous shoe repair shops in places like Mitsukoshi, Hankyu, World Footwear Gallery, and even ABC Mart, to name a few... Attesso out from Shibuya on the Inokashira line at Ikenoue has some of the finest work for the best prices. The choice is yours really. Let us know your experiences...
I think you would want to try an F fitting and see how it fits - if it is clearly too wide, then the E theoretically is the right width, but you could be in-between. I don't see why the forefoot would ease - maybe the insole gives in a little, but if your toe is squeezed, this won't improve - IMHO. The reverse could be asked of Dean`s opinion - if the forefoot eases on a perfectly fitting shoe, it would then be too large, right!? So, no, easing is not a valid reason to...
Leather will stretch, but never stretch to give more room where you want it. If that size does not work, and the size up is too big, don't listen to anyone and just move on - not all shoes are meant to fit all people...I`ve learned the hard way...my two cents worth  Don't think you missed an opportunity, it its not perfect at the outset, it never will be... Call them up and politely see if you can cancel the order, or at least try another shoe or last thats perfect from...
I can't comment on drying out - I'm guessing that the Kudu is tanned that way and the result is visually beautiful. But it does not absorb a cream well. Perhaps a wax is more suited, not sure.I can't comment on the two leather version and Hermes Red as I don't have it.
Koji Endo to move in-house to LeatherFoot in Toronto
I used the cream, and no I did not find any change in the lines in the leather. Today I tried a black wax, brown wax, and burgundy cream, and after polishing noticed no real change in colors. The kudu leather seems to have a very tough and hard `shell` that is quite stubborn to taking new colors is my opinion. I find it also quite a stiff and dry leather, and as I say has this quite tough `shell` that absorbs very little nutrient. I beautiful and very unusual leather, but...
Update on my Rosewood Kuku:   1. I have found that the Hermes Red Saphir matches this color perfectly - not too red, in fact its so close it would seem that is what could have been used originally.   2. The sole`s are stiffer than I thought. They are double leather admittedly, but still stiffer than other double soles I`ve had in the past - too early to make judgment, but it does mean that I found a need for a steel toe, and the wear on the toe was already...

Good question, as I believe they are from the same Subaru plant...just a branding and finish difference
