It is strange, the main problem for me is that there was too much leather around the instep and ankle, I could close the laces all the way and they still weren't tight. I can see from your pictures that they fit your foot much better, you have the laces pulled tight and still have some room between the sides. Best I can surmise is that the Brannock size only measures the bottom and width of your foot, not the circumference around the instep and ankle. So, I think we could both measure the same on a Brannock but still have really different fits for such a boot.
Another option you can look into if your foot is on the narrow side of the spectrum is the Leydon last. Many here go with the E width because of its narrowness.
I agree. There needs to be the same in Philadelphia. Allen Edmonds just opened up down there, hopefully Alden will be soon to follow!!!! I guess it depends on how AE does.
I knew there was a good reason I liked you!
