You should notify Orvis that they are giving out incorrect information. [/quote]
Were these a D width fitting? I grabbed the 10.5 but didn't check width first - I already have a 10E and will compare to see which is best fit but on the Brannock I'm a 11D.
I was going to try out the 10.5, but went with the 11s instead while thinking that they might be on the other last. 11 in Barrie works for me, and a 10.5D boot I have works but is a little tight (thin socks only). So I thought about the 10.5 shoe to give that a try. Interesting to hear you can go all the way down to 10E and still have enough room in the toe. I have to try a 10.5E someday, but on the other hand I'm not really sure I want to get attached to a size that's not easy to get and pretty much excludes and special makeups without preordering.
