in case i was not clear enough before, nick is the freaking man. had he not stepped in, i would have had to either return the shoes, or have shoes that were ill fitting. both were options i did not want to chose. i am pretty sure based on how the shoes fit now, that the socks will take care it. they are just a hair loose as it is, and i am confident that thanks to nicks help, i will be able to keep and enjoy the shoes.
THANK YOU NICK!!!
on top of that, after it was posted about the further price drop, i called barneys, gave some poor fellow and earful about what happened, and he went ahead and refunded the difference between what i paid and the new sale price, even though that is against their general policy of only offering adjustments to items bought at regular price and within 7 days or purchase.
so, i am pretty sure i will be keeping the shoes and they will fit me. so, without further ado, here they are.

IMHO, The full insole liners should do it. Nick had some made for my Decos and they fixed the problem. Glad to hear you bought the lasted trees for them. These should should have proper trees.
