I didn't take into account that the area around the sides of my heel and ankles were also quite narrow and needed to be tapered inward substantially. 

I highly recommend ordering test shoes for your personal last, I'm regretting not getting a trial pair and then some. I personally think that the price of a personal last should be raised to include fitting shoes. 

In my opinion, this depends on the amount and what kind of changes.
Some might just need a little extra space at the ball or little toe, and for them, as Patrick noted, it's just an economical solution.

With many changes, the need for trial shoes increase.

Apologies if this is old news, but I stumbled across this 2017 look book and had fun browsing: http://www.saintcrispins.com/SC_Lookbook_2017.pdf

Hi all, 

 

My first adventure into the St. Crispin's world was, unfortunately, unsuccessful due to sizing issues. As such, I am selling an exquisite pair of brand new classic black punched captoes in size 7.5F (comparable to 8.5 or 9D USA). I am open to reasonable offers, so please have a look at my listing if you are interested!

Guessing my size without having tried the shoes on.

In high end shoes, it's best to overspend if that's what it takes to have the darn things fit properly.

Even a plane ticket somewhere (extreme as it sounds even as I write it.)

We all feel your pain!

I didn't want to risk a poor fit, so I shelled out with some travel for my first pair of St. Crispins.  I was in upstate NY for work and took a day trip down to Manhattan to visit the Armoury and get sized in person.  What I ended up in definitely came as a surprise! 9E (narrow) with +3mm to my instep (hurray for last modifications!) when I've been fitting myself at 9.5+ to accommodate for my high instep.  Can't wait for them to get here, hopefully only a couple more weeks to wait.
