While strolling down Madison Ave. today, I discovered in the Allen-Edmonds shop across from Brooks a sale on discontinued (soon to be discontinued?) lines. All sale shoes between 135-195. They are eliminating some junk, some nicer shoes. Disappearing models include the Evanston, Easton, and Mcclain.
Length has to be right. In other dimensions, my experience is that tight heels will loosen up, and also the arch. Less so pressure on the outside of the foot. On the other hand, if this is your first pair of good shoes, then you'll find that the sole of a goodyear-welted shoe is stiffer than what you're probably used to, and the shoe will feel less good on first wearing and take longer to get comfortable in than what you've been wearing before.
