Not my area of expertise - you might search for input from my fellow Canadian @RogerP on high arches and/or tall feet. I'll guess though and say one of Simpson, Rain, or Soller depending where you reside on the narrow-medium-wide spectrum respectively.

Based on my research Rain seems to work for most all except those needing extremes in width or those with very flat feet. If anything Rain is slightly wide at the ball, a bit loose at the heel, but aggressively shaped through the toe.

Edit: And I believe Inca is even wider than Rain.

^^^ Nice collection Notreknip!  In a shoe, find Rain most accommodating of my high instep without going up in length.  Soller I have only sampled in a boot - and it is very spacious in all areas, instep included.

Like others, I also find it roomy width-wise, but well-proportioned in most other respects. It seems like it's made for a chukka or casual blucher. I wouldn't use it on a more formal shoe and/or a boot.

Anyone else feel bummed that they missed out on this: 
http://epauletnewyork.com/products/salinger-double-monk-burgundy-shell-cordovan

 

With the arrival of new Vass DM's there were no restocks last year and I'm guessing that stance will be taken this year as well. I personally prefer the style on the Carmina and guess an MTO will be the only route to get one.

 

Might as well gauge the interest here... if not i'll have to go solo!

 

Basic Proposed Makeup:

Carmina Double Monk

Burgundy Shell Cordovan

Inca Last

Stitched captoe

Silvertone buckles

Double leather sole

FWIW I found the Inca double monk a tad wide and sizing down a half size worked very well for me. That is, I'm a TTS US 10.5D, Alden Barrie/Trubalance 10D, Carmina Forest/Soller/all other lasts 9.5 UK, Carmina Inca 9 UK.

 

Mike also has recommended tongue pads. I've used these too and they're great: http://www.amazon.com/Pairs-Large-Tongue-Shoes-Adhesive/dp/B0030KSCCA

I don't own shoes in either, so I can't say. I've heard that the Rain generally takes the same size as the Forest or Soller.

Would like to thank @PeterL for helping me reach out to a member on discuss HK board and helping me get the Carmina Pythons BNIB with trees for an incredible price. Peter was kind enough to message the member and put us in touch with each other. Much appreciated!
