have you tried the B34 last yet? My foot is similar to yours though I have a widening in the foot south of the ball joint foot area. I find the B34 for casual wear a nice last.

 

The Odenwald  I really think could become a great stock item base for them to always release new builds of....I think it would be stellar in a variety of leathers, leather and suede combos. They could add a cap toe on to this boot...they could also turn this into a regular height boot. Adding some extra eyelets would be a good feature too.

 

Offering that boot in some rough out Kudu or Chamois would also be killer.... Of course this means they will discontinue soon...lol

 

I have not tried the B34 last, is the Odenwald one of the only things on it? It looks like a pretty nice shape indeed.

 

Right now it is their only current offering however they rolled it out with the Darmstandt and Sturgis...both of which were much more impressive in person than the website pictures show..In fact if you wanted a rugged beefy version of a Leed the Darmstadt was really nice...the brown leather was almost chamois like.

If the 65 works for you, may I ask why not the Black Hills?  For casual shoes I would probably rank them as one of my best pairs ever - the 65 gives them a nice sleek look and I find them extremely comfortable.

Nothing wrong with the Black Hills at all, I really like it...the B34 has more of that workboot..workshoe feel to it...for me personally I am pretty filled up with more elongated, pointy, etc shoes and boots. The B34 sort of is a nice cross between an Alden Barrie and a Viberg 2030 last.

Love it but have the burgundy Leeds, the PTB from Alden in Whiskey, natty CXL and the Alden #8 Dover on the way. Just too many PTB in my collection at the moment.

 

Come to think of it the Oak Steet in natural CXL might be a good choice on the 5 last.

Here are the two - the 65 last is much more tapered at the toe

Both are really nice, but these are truly a thing of beauty:

 

No idea why they would discontinue these.

The most shocking part of this story is... why the hell were you so close to a payless shoes?  lol

Gimme a break :) I was at the Pheasant Lane in NH - Target is the anchor store and Payless is right next to it; I was on my way over to A&F (go on, bring on the hate, but then tell me where else someone the same height as Willow can get relatively inexpensive stuff like polos and oxfords without going on a scavenger hunt for XS).

Question for someone more knowledgeable than I. It won't take much. The Rush Street and the Strandmok are both casual versions of the Strand. Both made on the 65, and both with Dainite. They are now only listing brown chromexcel in the Rush Street. Does anyone know if they are planning to discontinue the Rush Street completely, because if so, I want to grab a pair. I like them so much better than the tan Strandmok.

With all this talk about the fit with the independence lining, I wish I could try your Jeffersons on. If they fit I'd pick them up in a heart beat. Wish I could've been around when they were offering the web gem. I would've ordered two sizes and figured out which fit the best. My 8.5D/E with independence lining conundrum. Ugh.
