If you have any ability to get to a retailer who can do a fitting for pret adjustments, it's really worth the effort. St. C's ability to customize the shoe to fit your foot at small cost is one of the shoe's best features.

I see. Just looked at the pics of the grey one, and the fit problem seems the same as that I had which was fixed by reducing the rear rise and taking in the seat. But as others have said, ask Patrick. Better to rely on a real tailor than internet critics.
