For those who own this season's Maine Guide Ox DB's, is heel slip normal? I just got my pair (US8D) in from Context and upon trying them on I could feel heel slip in both pairs. I am a US8 in the Quoddy ring boots and chukkas and a US8E in the Yuketen Angler Mocs....all three of these pairs fit spot on. They feel fine when I put them on but once I start walking my back heels lift up about a 1/2" from the bottom of the inside of the shoes. The front part of the shoe feels fine and there is a 1/2" gap between my big toe and where the stitching starts. I've noticed on this pair that the back heels are basically straight up and down, so they don't really "hug" the back of your feet. Will the back heels eventually conform to the back of my foot? My gut instinct is to return these and go with a US7.5D.
