I don't want to make them work... they need to fit properly. However, I have some regular width loafers that worked out by downsizing half a size. Could you elaborate on the fit of the Cannes?
by 'making them work' i probably should have alluded to the last they're built on & the fact the 'fix' is minor in my
opinion. with a 'narrow' foot the TG73 would work just fine i believe. if you own other g&g and say purchase
a 10.5UK to achieve an 11US the 'downsize' would work just fine.
in the event they are made using the MH71 last, the overall width may be a very little bit wide for a
narrow fit & possibly have a little heel slip, a little breaking in and the possible addition of a saphir type
leather footbed insert worked just perfectly for me for that problem. personally, i can't handle the toes being
cramped by sizing down too much and would rather use the footbed insert than to try to endure that.
since the antibes has the 'strap' across the vamp any width stretch would likely be minimized regardless of
