Also given that the 6EE was only slightly too roomy at front then I would say 6E is quite safe.
Can I ask how much Paris was charging you for the beckett + shipping?
Paris was 1180 EUR for the Becketts. Delivery for 2 pairs plus an extra shoe tree was quoted at 290 EUR which I thought was a tad excessive.
Luckily I checked with the London store first - the pair was 885 GBP and delivery per pair was 55.43 GBP. Plus the export price is better since their VAT is like 16.66% while Paris is only 10%.
I ended up ordering from London instead.
