Greetings

Some help please from the experts

I am looking for a austerity brogue in black. I really like the Tavistock from Crockett and Jones but my high instep makes the E fitting a bit too snug.

They end up with quite a bit of V lacing at the top.

Btw, is there an amount of space in the lacing that is too wide? I have about 3/4 inches space at the widest part.

I have tried both the Tavistock and Tavistock II to no avail. The Tavistock II is even more narrow. The only other similar shoe I know of is the Edward Green Beaulieu. Its a great looking shoe but I would have to special order it in my size and I can't justify the price for a black shoe. I already have 2 pairs of EG in black.

Is there any other similar shoe someone can suggest ? Hopefully, one that is a bit more forgiving in the instep.

Thank you in advance
