post #28936 of 122416

quick question about fit:

 

just got a pair of longwings (barrie last), everything seems to fit (besides mild heel slippage), my question is about length -I've got something like 1-1.5 inches of space beyond my toes, is this the correct fit? or do I want my big toe to come closer to the end. Also should the shoes crease pretty much immediately?

Your fit question wont get an exact answer but most alden guys are more concerned more with having the widest part of the foot line up with the widest part of the shoe. The space from the end of your toes to the end of the shoe could vary.

Your heel slippage could also be there bacuse you have yet to break in your double leather sole.

If you have mad creasing (assuming you have shell cordovan) this could be because, as some peolple say, you have the wrong fit...

This seems like a normal fit, though you may want to consider an E in a half size shorter

263 Barrie last looks so much sleeker with a flat welt.

It will loosen up because your foot will 'sink' into the leather footbed as the cork underneath molds to your foot but from experience they shouldn't stretch THAT much, certainly more than shell though.
