Why does no one seem to know anything about the Xim last? I'm somewhere between 10.5e and 10.5f on the EG 82 last. Widths forefoot and high instep. Would 10.5 on the Xim work?

You website does not seem to have any mention of this special offer. I may be game though. How bad can it be? you can remove a patina if things go wrong can't you?
