Two questions:1. When you say the instep is (was) too tight, I take it that you are referring to LHS on the Van last (and not some other shoe on the Barrie). Am I correct?2. Were the shoes that you were able to stretch made of shell or calf?I have a high instep. A few years ago I tried on a pair of shell LHS in my Barrie size. I walked maybe a total of 15 to 20 yards in them. The length was fine with no heel slippage but I didn't get them because they were very tight...
Thanks.
Sure, I am interested in them.
