I have a flat wide foot and found that the LHS (van last) worked awesome for me. The fit across the vamp was no issue.I wend with my barrie size (11.5D). It's a little more snug across the board compared to the barrie, but his helps when going sockless.
My #8 Shell LHS didn't take too long to break in and feel like slippers. However i did make the mistake of wearing them sockless on one of my first outings and ended up with a few blisters from heel slippage.
But now that I have work them for almost a year they are one of my favourite pairs...by far.
black BB unlined will be my next LHS
