The Handgrade 337 last has the Weymouth, which I find to be beautiful, but it doesn't come in G fittings, which worries me. I guess the only way to really know for sure is to walk into the boutique and try it on. Hoping the trip won't be for naught as it's been really hard finding a shoe that I like that fits my feet...
I've got a high instep and whilst my feet aren't wide, they aren't narrow, either.
I've got a few pairs on the 337 last (Belgrave, Audley) in a regular width that fit well over my instep, although I went up by half a size on my usual size - I usually take a UK 9 but my 337 last shoes are all UK 9.5.
I also have a pair of benchgrade C&J Drummonds on the 348 last in a G width, and this also fits very well over my instep and it's got plenty of width, too. Just to be confusing, I have those in my usual size, a UK 9.
