I have the same shoe in whiskey. It is on the Tremont last, and I have a good amount more creasing (similar to your pic) than I would like. I do not believe it is because of the shoe being too large, at least in my case. The length and width are perfect, but there is an area above my foot, an inch or so beyond where the shoelaces begin (not sure what this part of the shoe anatomy is called), throat or vamp... anyways, this region is roomy inside and may cause more creasing. I'm not sure a more narrow size would work for me though. I think the Tremont is just a less desirable last. Still love this particular shoe. I have learned to embrace the creasing as Shawnw suggested.
