Yeah, that's what I mentioned to you in one of your threads. The cordovan is the worst one, but I couldn't fit into the lower size. At $259 I couldn't pass it up because the patina is glorious, despite the ripples.
This has been part of my learning curve: to buy shoes that seem quite snug at first. The problem is a large bump on the top of my left foot that militates against sizing down, so I'll rarely get a perfect fit. The Lobbs, Tom James, and Vass were so tight they were painful, but now I'm rewarded with fewer ripples after suffering for the fit, and now they fit fairly well.
