I've run into a similar problem, but I also have wide feet. I'm still working out the kinks on getting sized on each last.
Or golf shoes. AE has a custom order that looks pretty good. Not sure how a shell cordovan golf shoe would do. Should be pretty durable. The patina that would develop through all of the elements of weather might be amazing (or miserable??). Anyone ever heard of shell used as a golf shoe?
