Yeah it will work with some and perhaps most shoes but, as I said, not all. If you have a high vamped shoe or wide shoe you should be safe. As a UK E, I think you'd probably be fine.
It is quite a pronounced point though when you compare it to, for example, the ultra.
I can try and get a photo of my epics at home if you want. I use them in my 1ks and AE boots.
