No, I have somewhat flat feet and I don't usually have any problem at all.

Then sadly I can no longer be of assistance... hopefully someone else with similar feet can provide a better diagnosis.

If you've never had this problem with other shoes (or other Alden shells in particular), I would suggest it may have nothing to do with size per se; rather, the shoes/boots themselves - while the same listed size - are ever-so-slightly different. Such is sometimes the nature of handmade shoes. Quite some time ago I purchased a pair of new ravello shell PTBs in 9D (I have numerous Barrie-lasted shells in 9D). One shoe fit great; the other snug. An exchange was impossible as ravello ptb's are damn near never available in 9D - and I had gotten the last pair. After applying some pre-stretch spray, I used a shoe stretcher and kept it in as suggested - 24 hours. Problem solved. Over the years I have had to do this a handful of times (shell and calf, but admittedly only shoes, not boots). 100% success rate. nod[1].gif

grendel: does the widest part of your foot match up with the widest part of the shoe? in the allen edmonds thread, someone posted a thing about the brannock device, saying that the shoe needs to work for you in overall (back of heel to end of toes) length, but also in heel to ball length. if the ball of your foot is in the wrong part of the shoe, the shoe will be flexing at the wrong point relative to your foot. that might be causing the discomfort in your arch.

Well, I know my feet are slightly different sizes. One is slightly wider, the other slightly longer. I think I'm just gonna give the 10D's a shot and see how it goes.

Looking good. They almost look like Whiskey in that light.

I am traveling through Europe and am currently in Barcelona. I stopped by a shop named Santa Eulalia today. They carry high end men's and women's clothing. They also have a small selection of Aldens. This make-up caught my eye. It is an unlined wing-tip. As you can see, the wing-tip is created by stitching, rather than an additional piece of shell. I didn't purchase them, but thought I would share some shots of them with everyone.
