Got a question for you guys: I just picked up the unlined suede chukka on the leydon last in 1/2 size larger than my Barrie sizing, but same width. The retailer did not have additional widths. They seem tight, and I am wondering how much they will stretch? Do those of you that have them find they stretch to fit the foot a bit after some wearing, or am I looking at that tightness for the life of the shoe?
Thanks for the help.
I'm a 12.5D Barrie and got a great deal on unlined snuff irregular chukkas in 13D (my Brannock size). They felt tight so I returned them and bought 1st's in 13E - they are amazingly comfortable. I have since read here that many people go tts & up a width in these beauties.
