True. My problem is rather that I have very square feet/toes, so anything pointy is out (otherwise I would def have gotten the Postman shoes by now). I would ideally wear square toed shoes... But the Beckmans (IR last) in a "true to size" (brannock) fit well and snug with an insole.
^^ same. Or perhaps I could size down a half size size, but no halfsizes offered > 12. That said, the iron ranger last is pretty long in my usual shoe size, like 1-2.5 cm longer than other shoes/boots I own. Not much to do about that though.
