No, @Neo1, the Rutledges were just a little slower to break in than the Rogues, which fit perfectly from the start.
I got the Rutledges at your suggestion, in fact, since you seemed to correctly think that the last is better for higher instep folks than the 5 last. I just figured an open lace version of that last would be pretty close to perfect if I can do OK in a bal. You know how bluchers tend to give you just a little more room on top.
Just for curiosity's sake, what would you have suggested?
