Sounds like it's time for you to branch off into other brands in '15!
Enzo Bonafe has many lasts that cater to high insteps. Perhaps a good place to start?
Come to think of it, most AE lasts are relatively flat in the instep (which is why they fit me so well). Except maybe the 7 last. Have you tried the MacNeil or Jomoc? The eyestays on my MacNeil practically overlap.
Great haul (and photos) though!
I'll definitely take a look at Bonafe. I was wondering where to go from here and figured Alden was the next logical choice, and I have been looking at the Carmina line as well.
There are so many shoe options out there, and I probably would have strayed sooner, but the AE store is just up the road from me. It's run by a great group of guys who make everything so easy, and they offer great deals on both firsts and seconds so the value is tough to beat, but I guess that applies to Allen Edmonds in general.
Neumok maiden voyage tonight for New Years dinner:
Have a great night guys!
(I also just remembered that I have the matching Neumok messenger bag, too. So I've got *that * going for me. )
