    How does 724 compare to CJ 348?

    More squared off and less pointy. I've sold off all of my 348/58's but one, and we're I to rebuy would do so in 7.5 rather than 8.5. I just started wearing a pair of 724 but 8 seems perfect so far.

    I have slightly wider than average feet and would say the 724, although quite tapered, is wide at the joint, tight in the waist and elongated enough that it works. I bought my usual 7 and used stretchers a couple of times but I usually have to do this anyway. A half size larger may have worked but then I'd have likely ended up with heel slip and the crease running into the toe cap. They are very comfortable all day wear shoes for me, like a pair of gloves even tho I don't have toe wiggle room.

    The 109 has an almond toe, a little roomier in width and toe box and the 7 fit me out of the box.
    Depending on your instep and the fit at the waist which is beautifully snug for me, a slender foot may need a 1/2 size down or an insole.

    But normal width feet should fit in either of these without any issues. I'd compare the 109 to C&J 341 for fit even if the 341 is a little longer.
