Wonderful shoes Sdolina - they came out great. How do they fit?
Some choices - for Sneakers - New Balance makes widths for sure and I think they are of high quality. Would also look at Ecco, Mephisto, Abeo and Orthaheel - if you go into a 'comfort' shoe store you're going to find a lot of casual shoes and summer sandals that will work. Any good sneaker / runners shop will also be able to fit you in a comfortable pair of casual sneaker - issue here is that the style you like the best may not always be the one that is best for your...
I need to clarify my question here - if anyone has actual experience in shipping to proxies or retailers in central and eastern europe - I would ask you to please take a look.

I am referring to feet for sure - I think there is a good degree of subjectivity to fit and I am accustomed to RTW shoes. So trying to better assess how tight is too tight when looking at bespoke and MTM. Sometimes I have to really break in and walk miles before I know for sure.
How tight doe your shoes fit in the toe box in comparison the the heel and across your instep/arch?
Very nicely done! Were these bespoke or RTW? Would you mind telling us what they cost you?
That includes shoe trees as well. This is worth some investigation for sure - plenty of good posts and articles online for Maftei. I was in Vienna doing this last week and should have my first pair in mid-to-late February.
For Calf, Maftei will run you around EURO 1000 including VAT. That includes EURO 100 for the last..
