Ravello LHS today.
High insteps created the same problem for me - I've never resorted to buying heavy equipment like a "vamp raiser", I've just brought all of mine to Brooks Shoe Service here in Chicago (plug - great shoe repair shop).
But, over time the stitching in the LHS across the instep invariably comes undone. I've owned the LHS in many shell colors over the years and I've finally come to the realization that the shoe is not made for my foot. Still have a pair of Ravello and a pair of Whiskey but as these wear out they won't be replaced.
