You think so? The right shoe is perfect, it's just that my left pinky sticks out a little.

Unfortunately, he's right @Oinkedmoo

 

I find if the shoe feels tight across the top of my foot, then it is too narrow.  If you have pinky toe issues, it's likely that the shoe is too short.  You might be able to stretch it enough, but only time will tell.

Or .... It's that the 1943 last is not shaped like a human adult foot. Just sayin'.

Disclaimer: I've long railed against the 1943, but it's not clear if the problem lies more with my foot or the last. All I know is that I can find an acceptable fit in every AR last I have tried except the 1943, and that I would own at least two copies of the Cornwallis if it was on a last compatible with my foot.

I had a hard time getting the fit down as well. I take a 9.5D in the 5 last and 9.5E on the 1943 works pretty well for me. Not perfect, but comfortable and not too loose.

Would those be with the old piping, or the new? 😈

Go up a half size in the same width and you'll be fine in the 1943. The 1943 just fits short.

They were the new, as in "no piping".   However, the color black looks fine to my eyes.  It's the walnut color that looks bad with the raw edge.

Yeah, I think I'll got up half a size for the next 1943 shoe. I tried my 65 last size but not quite right...

I disagree with such blanket statements.

If we all posted pictures of our feet, you'd be shocked by the huge variation in the "shape" of feet -- even feet that are the same size. Some people have toes where each one is shorter than the next. For me, my first three toes are just about the same length, then the next two are shorter.
You know how these shoes fit better than anyone. So if that's the only issue with your shoe fit, the stretcher may work fine. I use the "solution", which is isopropyl alcohol. Wet the shoe at toe end where you want to stretch it, and remember to wet the inside of the shoe as well.
Good luck!

Didn't work for me, unfortunately, nor did going up a width. Going up a size AND a width made the toe box OK, but the volume was too high. Ultimately, not for me.

I dont know what is on my new suede shoes but it's like a flaw or glue. It's not coming off. I managed to peel off part of it but the rest is ground in. Suggestions?

It's stuck like its glue and really hard feeling. It may be a burn. Not really sure.

I'm an absolute suede noob, but find myself with 2 pairs in under a month! Before my jade Maritime or navy Sea Island need it, I'd like to get appropriate care items. Would you guys think this brush and spray are good? Recommend something else?

Problem gets to be when you wear above a 12 there are really no half sizes in the Cornwallis. ???
