frank, I was at Bakers today and took my new Robert in. they are going to cut the tongue down about 2 inches to allow easier entry. any cobbler can do this pretty cheaply.
also, found out that they loved the leather too and the toe is probably a #2 which surprised them
the arch is a little wider from nicks than whites also it is a bit higher.. to me it feels equally as comfortable either way.
I noticed that the 11e of mine is a little longer too. could have probably gone with a 10 1/2
today I ordered a olive cxl Roberts after returning another pair that never fit.
I was really impressed with this boot and how both my sd whites and nicks Roberts accomplish their goals. really rugged quality footwear. took my best friend and he was put into a pair of Lowa Tibet goretex boots. amazing german wonders. whites were exactly wrong for him. you should check them out on bakers site.
