If the shoes basically fit and you like them buy them. they will usually change and adapt.

If not you can always get the ugly shoe stretcher device.

I mean it is not like your buying a house or a car. It is just a pair of shoes. Compromises will be made. Hell you probably didn't think of your wife/gf as the most interesting woman in the world but you have adapted to it, so shoes should be no problem

Unfortunately I have foot problems because of the shape of my foot (it's wide, especially in the mid-foot). I always have issues when buying any shoe. Trust me, it's not by choice. I play ice hockey and I cannot wear any standard skate, I had to get it custom made. Again, not by choice. So you don't know me and keep your comments to yourself.

I know using a local cobbler, who can stretch it, is an option but I want to see if these can break in first.

Also the place I purchased from only has it on the 606.

My wife wears an extra thin sock on her smaller foot with most of her shoes.

I find the 202 to fit me a little bigger than the 606, but not enough to make much of a difference.

This is the hardest EG last to fit correctly. Strangely non-anatomical.

PEACE BE WITH YOU ALL.

and shipping and handling and surcharge for shipping and handling and also administrative charges and then of course you convert that all to US, because it was calculated at GBP and now it makes sense. I had you all wrong earthdragon, my bad

Fair enough, I interpreted your comments as sarcastic in a condescending way. Anyways, shoe shopping is painful for me in more ways than one. Besides if I'm paying 1300 for a shoe, it better fit me right.

With the Dovers, did anyone have trouble moving their toes? Mine feel bunched up, not in pain, just not flat.

These sound too small for you.

What are the odds of having the same colorway Shannons in the State of MI? You can represent Motor City and I'll hold the capital. smile.gif

I was unaware that having wide feet was a medical condition... perhaps I need to see my doctor so he can diagnose me with triple-E-itis

The NYT says that the City of Detroit has a 9% crime solve rate - so, I'd rather represent the Ann Arbor area if it's all the same to you. lookaround.gif

ADVICE NEEDED:

I received a new pair of Ullswater w/Dainite on Monday and put them in the closet (doors open). They have a very strong leather (presumably) odor that none of my other shoes have.

Wondering if it's the finish, treatment, the leather itself or did the leather get wet somewhere along the line and is moldy?

Any experience with this?

Shouldn't be an issue. It varies from shoe-to-shoe and maker-to-maker.

I have ahd similar experiences with EG and St. Crispin's have an extremely strong leather odor when they newly arrive.

I wouldn't sweat it for a minute.

I think all my shoes smelled strongly of leather (and solvent? polish?) during the first wear. it's really obvious when I sit down in my office....but now my brain associates the scent with new goodies so it doesn't register as anything disconcerting happy.gif

This is one of the reasons I spend thousands of these type of shoes, I love that smell! If any of my expensive and good quality leather shoes did not have that smell I would be quite upset LOL.
