can you elaborate a bit more.
how do you size in them compared to other trickers as well.
thank you again.
This was a while ago, and I don't have them anymore. But my recollection is narrower at the wide part of my foot and toe box; the heel was fine. The top, vamp, and toebox volume were fine. It was just the width.
For reference, I am a D width in US sizing. If you are familiar with the Allen Edmonds 2 last, that is also too narrow for me.
In comparison, the 4497 is comfortably roomy on me. I don't like tight shoes. But the 2298 was narrow enough to be uncomfortable for me.
I found this post from Zippyh, our resident expert. I would agree with his ordering. 2298 is just narrow for me. But this should give you an idea of how they stack up.
My order would be 2298 (narrow) < 4537 < 4497 < 4444. But I would call 2298, 4537, and 4497 all true to size; just different.
