the size is right, even a bit too long and wide, but the top does not close neatly, not near. what is wrong here? is that the 'instep' or a different exotic measure?
thanks for the answers
You have a high instep is all - I've not got one but I've never really felt they constituted "ill-fitting", merely differently fitting. As long as they're comfortable around the foot and don't slip or anything they're fine.
I don't know any brands that fit well for people with high insteps - maybe someone could post some.
