So, the McTavish's came in the 10.5 EEE that came direct from the factory as the in store ones were scratched on the leather. Firstly, there was a huge blob of darker color on one side. I know these are uneven in the tanning process but this blob was very very prominent and unattractive. I called the store who apologized and said they would look for another pair. In the meantime I gave them to him to at least try on and -- arrgh -- they were painfully tight on him. I think maybe he may need to size up? He is a 10.5 3E everywhere else?
1) Is there a wider last than that of the McTavish? I believe it's the 65 last. If so, which styles are wider that have a similar jean friendly look? Anyone with wider feet have the Dundee? Or the Dalton?
2) Is there a chance the shoe could be stretched? And after stretching would they continue to mould to the foot?
3) Are your shoes ever tight and were successfully stretched to be more accomodating to a wider foot?
