Keep in mind I am pretty much crouched right down flexing in the pic, that is an extreme look at the creases. The boot does not crease much when walking but I can feel the flex on the right foot on top of my toes a little bit so that was my main concern.
The fit is really good on them, it's an 8.5D and an 8D was far too narrow. It's possible the best fit may be an 8E in this boot but by no means does the fit not work and with these being Cappuccino Cordovan, having them remade is not an option at all at this point.
Yeah it's an 8.5D and I have heard people say that exact statement about the Bayfield in smaller sizes.
