I asked the question in my other post, but thought it would be appropriate here.
I recently received my Shell Cordovan in #8, unfortunately they didn't have my size (9.5 E) that I was looking for on the ShoeTeamsport website.
Anyway, I have a wide foot but what seems to be making things more difficult is the fact that I have very little arch. (A lot of Native Americans don't) So I tried these once I received them, and this was the size suggested by an Alden rep who happened to be at a haberdasher in Portland on the day I stopped in. He did mention they run a little larger but thought these would be fine. They fit alright on the front part of my foot, but after the ball of my foot they are a little snug. Will these stretch, even a little bit
? I don't think I can go up to a 10 E cause they are already a little llong. Although they seem much longer than the 9 3E Straight Tip Blucher's that I ordered and now have to send back cause they are too small.
Any advise on whether I need to send back the Longwings
