I'm not sure about the arch length. Well, I can tell you that I own the unlined chukkas in 8D on the Leydon last, and they're definitely too big on me. My foot can slide forward and back in them. However, my feet may have shrunk since the last time I measured them on a brannock because I've been stretching them a lot, and I do a lot of dancing. The actual shoes that I tried on were: The Indy boot (trubalance), PTB (barrie), unlined chukka (leydon), and the plain toe bal (I think) (plaza).
