If buying in the US, where is the best online shop?
Lastly, if anyone could post some pictures of you wearing them, it would awesome.
Thanks, and sorry for the novel.
No differences in between Bourton and Keswick, except the available colors. Bourton is available in Marron Antique, Espresso and Acorn, while Keswick is available in C Shade and Black Gorse (if I'm not mistaken).
Marron Antique is the best color imo, but only because I find Acorn too light to be versatile. C Shade is quite nice too.
I'm pretty sure Pediwear would be your best bet...
Also be aware that if you don't have a massive instep, even on the standard 5 width the lacing will need to be fairly tight, as on the picture below from Tom.
