I SMH at this logic.  Shoe sizing is a matter of Height x Width x Length, not volume.  If you had liquid feet, this might work, but since you don't, you will need to get the right dimensions, not just the right "volume".

 

Something that is 25 x 25 x 2 will not fit in a container that is 25 x 10 x 5, even though they have the same volume.

 

If they are just a "teeny [sic] bit" tight, there is hope, but anything more than a little snug and I'd say you are SOL.

 

Good Luck

Bright sunshine always makes shell look great in pics, even with phone-cameras.

With that said, after the shoes break in they may give you a little more space. As the insole is worn down it will add a little volume in the shoe.

Good looking boots! I have them in the grant last and wear them a lot.

Agreed. I regularly stretch my shell (width, not length). Because the bone in my left instep extends a little further than normal, I either have to size up and buy shoes that don't truly fit or buy shoes I need to adjust. I am very deliberate and patient in my method but it works fine for me. I'm sure other methods work as well but the important point is that if you're patient, you can stretch shell without any change in appearance or loss of functionality.

@mr.DV, sweet saddles! What sole do they have? Almost looks like red brick, but I can't tell for sure.

Wore my #4 wingtip boots yesterday for the Friday Challenge. Photo sucks but here it is anyway.

With all the ravello lust lately, here's a great alternative (and I would argue a much better value for the price). Carmina has cognac LWBs for a little over $600. Looks like they're on dainite, but beggars can't be choosers.
