need some help to get the sizing right for my third pair of aldens - the 2 pair i have gets uncomfortable after a while.
They are of the barrie last and the grant last. both are cordovan if it matters.
In the Barrie last, they are a pair of 8D and in the Grant last, a 9D.
For these two pair of boots, when i wear them to walk, after some distance I will feel pain in my 4th toe ( The biggest toe being the first, counting down) from it rubbing the insides of the boots toebox.
So I'm wondering what approach to the sizing should i be looking at to avoid this - a half size bigger or a width increase? Love my aldens, want to get my third pair, and from then on all in the correct sizing hopefully.
still a 50/50 chance of it going wrong, since im left with 2 options, up half a size or going from D width to E... hopefully u guys can eliminate that chance of it going wrong for me..
