Yeah, I was a bit put out by that too. I really like the Black Alpine Grain longwings but cannot get them in an "E" width. I can squeeze into the "D" though so will probably go ahead and order them regardless. I am a sucker for the crepe sole.

I mean jeeez, INDIANA JONES WORE THEM.
I wouldn't wear them with a suit though.

 

Indiana Jones is a fake character though. The real story is that Harrison Ford worked as a carpenter before he made the big time as an actor, and swore by Alden 405's while working all day in the shop. 

 

When he got cast as Indiana Jones, the costume designer was trying different boots for him but he insisted on wearing his trusty Aldens. The studio then went to a shoe store in Burbank and bought several paris in Harrison Ford's size to use in the film. Some were aged and dirtied for different scenes, etc.

They are offering the Indy Boots and Tanker Boots in E widths. I just preordered the tanker in 9.5E. I don't have any tankers or NSTs, and the classic #8 tanker would be a welcome addition to the collection.
