Ok. I don't want to put anyone's name on the internet without permission...but I do happen to know of a "Last Pair" sale on G&G. £400 (about $570 American).  I do know there are a bunch of 11.5 &12 Es with a couple 12Fs. But I think that might be it (at least from the feedback I've gotten from others). If anyone's interested PM me and I'll give you the details.

Grabbed 4 pairs from that sale. Woops.
post #20017 of 21778
Where is that sale?
post #20018 of 21778
From what I've been told by others the sale only has 11s, 11.5s, 12s. If that is of interest to you pm me.

A couple of F width options for those as well. Should come in handy for someone.

I ordered a Canterbury boot today in vintage oak antique on the MH71 last in size 10E at the NYC trunk show. All of my shoes are standard width. I felt my small toes on t both shoes, but more so on the left, to be tight. Dean added a note to add a bit more room on the left shoe. He mentioned there will be a noticeable stretch after wear. I am looking for some forum opinions, do you think there will be stretch? I tried a size up, 10.5E, and it was too big; heel slippage, and it just didn't feel like the shoe provided any support.

From my personal experience, anything that create problem for your pinky toe should be moved asap. I learned it the hard way, tried to keep them, stretched them and persuaded myself that they will work eventually. They never did.

Leather will stretch, but never stretch to give more room where you want it. If that size does not work, and the size up is too big, don't listen to anyone and just move on - not all shoes are meant to fit all people...I`ve learned the hard way...my two cents worth  Don't think you missed an opportunity, it its not perfect at the outset, it never will be...

 

Call them up and politely see if you can cancel the order, or at least try another shoe or last thats perfect from the outset. I`ve heard salespeople say it will fit later just too many times.

Going to F width would be your answer.
post #20024 of 21778

In my experience. Soft calf, next to suede, will experience the most profound stretch. However, if your smaller toes are visibly protruding you'll never fit into the shoes comfortably and should try to return/move them. Sizing up a width may rectify the problem within the toe-box area but may create issues from the forefoot to heel. I've been able to simply size up by a half all together and it's made all the difference.

I am going to Leffot today to try on a 10E again to see how they feel. Dean measured my foot and said I am definitely a 10. I tried on the trial shoes at the trunk show. The left shoe had a visibly protruding pinky finger, but he made a note to add more room. Unfortunately Leffot doesn't stock a F.
