Well that would make sense if said person ordered a left foot 7.5EE and a right foot 7.5E. As soon as I can borrow a camera, they're going on B&S.

If so, any workarounds to this that you guys have found?
Additionally, these boots are extremely, extremely uncomfortable. I feel every bit of the ground walking around in them, and not in a good way. By the end of the day, my feet are painful and my toes are more or less bruised. Has anybody else experienced these problems? I'm not sure if it's simply how I'm walking, or if these boots are defective.
Sigh.

This describes my Dayton x W+H experience to a tee. I had a lot of heel slip, even after sizing down and adding insoles. Going down another size wouldn't have been feasible, as they fit well with the insole. Despite that, I had a lot of heel slippage.

I could have handled that were it not for the absolute agony I'd feel in my feet if I walked around in these any more than 10 or 15 minutes. Even with the insole, every step felt clunky and jarring. They looked great, but I rarely wore them because when I did, all I could focus on was how uncomfortable every step I took was.

Wow. You can tell from his email that his a total douchebag and is essentially shifting the blame either because he doesn't want to feel liable or simply doesn't feel liable for Dayton going under. What a shitty CEO.

this is the problem with rtw shoes - You probably have feet with normal size ankles, and Daytons (+Alden, most american shoes etc) probably have massive heel areas that are just too wide to fit properly.

It's the same with the waist - most RTW shoes don't make narrow waists because then people with flat feet wouldn't fit.

Mauro would've definitely done the right thing, he is a good guy. He takes chances on products but Mauro's ethics are on point.

That e-mail is shocking. Literally mouth agape, holy fuck. Needs to be printed on some high-profile menswear blogs.
