may i ask another question
I have a pair of RTW shoes that pinches my little toe, does it not necessarily mean i need a wider fore foot width? I read one of the DFW post before, it is heel-ball length that matters, even if i lost my toes, i would probably still wear the same size. So 'pinching my little toes' might just mean, this rtw last is not for me, correct? Since, i dont feel uncomfortable at the place of my ball or the metatarsophalangeal joint of my little toe(i didn't know how to say it so i have just googled it)
Am i correct?
That's a plausible conclusion. At a certain point, however, if you're having this much problem you may need to look at bespoke or MTM.
Again, RTW seeks to fit the most people with the least amount of effort or variation.
Again, consider that in the American system of last grading we have a minimum of five possible widths in each length size. And possibly even nine or more possible widths.
Most RTW brands...even the highest of the high end...offer only three possible widths, maximum. And zero accommodation for the foot with a wide forepart and a narrow heel.
Yet feet themselves vary enough that a pair of feet (on the same body) may (almost certainty will) differ in length and / or esp. width.
How is limiting the number of options available to the customer anything but expediency and / or cynicism?
Most people who buy RTW sacrifice fit to one degree or another...regardless of how insignificant...for the sake of appearance. And dismiss logic and rationality as an impediment to fulfilling their dreams.
