Whats wrong with the back?

The top seam where the flap attaches definitely looks odd, like there's pulling at certain points. Have you contacted Gustin? They're generally pretty good about returns.

Looking at Jr's pics EP seems to be widest around the toebox, but I kinda like the looks of G more. 

 

I went to vans/converse this weekend to test fit shoes and 10 seems to give me the best width in the toebox (albeit still tight) and can just use a heavier sock to make up for length.

 

I just got both the blue leather and CXL horween sneakers. The CXL ones feel slightly roomier / wider. I measure about 8.25 on the Brannock with wide, flat feet and usually take a 8D in the Alden Barrie last. The size 8 in the Gustin sneakers fit pretty well - the area where my feet are widest under the toe were slightly tight, but nothing unmanageable. The shoes are well constructed but also have some give, it did not take too long to break them in.

Saw they brought the cone peach ID back, which I find amazing, but with the weak euro + shipping and taxes it becomes as expensive as being selvedge denim at the regular brands...

 

 Must be great for Americans to buy in euro at the present moment.

I remember when a Euro was worth about $0.90.  Good ol' Y2K.

I'm confused, isn't the euro still strong than the dollar? Weaker than it was a few yrs back, sure, but still a favorable exchange. Is it taxes/shipping that are the real problem?

Could you please post some photos?  Particularly of the blue leather.  I almost bought those but was discouraged by how wrinkled the leather looked in the Gustin photo.  Curious how they turned out.  Thanks.

Two years ago you had 1,4 $ for a euro. Now it's 1,09 dollar = euro

Nearly the same as you except exchange rate is still a little more favorable than yours. (customs is 21% on price+ shipping and you get always hit and administration taxes is an additional 15€) At the end, the price is approximatively 150$ or 136€. But I'll stop complaining with all those Canadians around. ;)

If that's for the measurement across = half, you should be ok, still very slim. If that add-on is for the whole circumference, good luck with the wiggling. wink.gif
But seriously, adding 3" around means it'll wear very slim, adding 4" is about right for reasonable movement. Armholes and drop etc being additional factors. Would be my take from own experience.
