If the shoe lets your feet slip out when laced up then this is really not a good fit if you ask me but if you are happy with them then it is fine.
I personally do not prefer insoles unless they are orthotic insoles for walking boots which is fine otherwise I think dress shoes should fit like a glove from day one for me otherwise it is a waste IMHO.

I understand you have extensive experience with shoes and fit, but from what I see (all of us), those shoes do not fit you properly at all.  Sooner or later you will regret. I hate insoles and patches.  Good luck, lovely shoes.

Justin,

I agree with above. The shoes appear to big for your feet in the pic. There is excess room around your heel, laces are all way closed and the instep still looks loose. Why not just try a 1/2 sz down and see how it feels?

Of course this is only what i gather from the pic. You are the only that can tell how they feel and what you want in terms of fit. Shoes should be comfortable from the beginning, and at the end of the day you will be wearing them not me or anyone else.

The definition of snug and comfortable are different for individuals so sometimes it is hard to agree online on what a good fit is

Justin if the width feels good, you might consider going down a half size and up a width. It can be really transformative for fit. Steve (or EG directly) can do a stock pull with no MTO fee. Might be a good experiment, just an idea.

^^^They look great, love the colour, especially with the light grey trousers.

On fit - each to his own, some people like looser fitting shoes than others. If they are causing pain, or you are getting blisters then there is an issue, but otherwise...

Mate, you wouldn't believe it. Though here goes, I was walking through town to get my hair cut and on the way took a short cut through Marks and Spencer (English). Sale was on and saw these for GB£12 so got them without trying on with another pair in a chalky RAF blue also GB£12. Day light robbery if you ask me

Proof how a good footwear can make the rest of the outfit look expensive as well, or as Hardy Amies would say: It is totally impossible to be well dressed in cheap shoes..

Created a lot of stir with my Chelseas today so I figure I would post my shanklins.

I do have a pair of UK9 on the way however my last experience with the UK9 was on the Galways and they were too snug and too short. I did try a pair of Chelseas in a UK9.5 before and they fit really well.

I do prefer my shoes more comfortable which I know is not what most of the gents on the forum prefer but I've had my fair share of leg/foot issues (blisters, cramping, knee pain) and so having them slightly bigger helps me over the course of the day. I've also mentioned I do a fair amount of walking as my job is on my feet all day so having something comfortable vs snug makes a difference. Almost all my shoes can lace up tight where the facings will touch but I find those to be the most comfortable out of everything I own.

Sorry for the rambling but just thought I should explain the why.
