I've heard the Leydon runs narrow, so should I go 11E in an unlined Leydon chukka?
I am 12D TTS, 11E TB, 11.5 Barrie, 12D Van and took at 12D in the Leydon unlined chukka very comfortably. Probably all the reason to do your best to try them on first. I realize not everyone has the luxury of an Alden store to try everything on first to get your ideal size on all lasts, but getting the proper fit is so important it might be worth ordering a few from ShoeMart and eating the shipping to send back what doesn't work. Although I have no clue if TSM has the unlined chukka.
