My SJs are on the C461 last. It does seem a little roomier in the toe area than the SD and Packer lasts. I don't think it is really wider than any other last, but it may be a bit taller in the toe. As for the turned up toe, I don't think it shows as much as in some photos. Then again, my SJs have a double midsole, so that may have flattened it out some.

The work boots on the other hand have been real snug all the way around. Especially over the arch area and even more so in the upper shaft where they fit around the leg up above the ankle. The leather on the left, outer part of the left boot has been VERY uncomfortable since it is constantly pressing on my leg right above the ankle. The right boot is VERY tough to get my right foot into but once it's in there the boot fits fine.
Have you ever fractured your ankle?
I would have assumed you'd have mentioned that, but I found it funny because many moons ago I fractured my left ankle and I have the exact problem you describe with some footwear. Thank goodness that problem has never manifested itself with any White's.
