FWIW I wear a 9C Van and recently acquired a pair of Rancourt boat shoes in 9D (as you must know from having read the whole thread). I think they are the same last as the beefrolls. They were tight all around at first, but the CXL has stretched to fit. Why not do the Made to Fit program if you are so unsure?
Thanks for the response. To be honest, I figured you'd be one of the first to answer. In fact, that's why I mentioned my Van sizing. As for the Made to Fit program, I'm in Canada, and the customs issues would be an absolute nightmare. As my buddy the trucker says: US Customs people are there to protect the country, the Canadian Customs people are there to squeeze every penny they can from you.
I'll phone Rancourt to confirm which lasts they use for the shoes I'm interested in compared to your boat shoes.
