    You don't happen to have a pair of calf DB's to compare to do you?

    Taper would imply less space.

    I also have 8.5D Leeds in shell. They are tight in the ball of the foot and cramped by the toes. On the other hand, my shell DB x F in 8.5D feels a half size big ... I feel that my ideal size would have been an 8D.

    I would recommend an 7.5D for you ... unlike shell, calf has some give.

    Woah, that's nuts. The last time I wore shoes that small was in grade school!

    I think it was more of an issue with my instep being too low for the shoes. I couldn't tighten the laces enough. Would have been solved with a tongue pad.

    Agree ... the 7.5 may be too short if your original concern with fit was related strictly to the width

    Yep Denon indeed. Good sound coupled with decent speakers.

    BTW I just saw a 9.5D DB Chukka at $143. Well worth it for the $. Double leather soles in suede for that.. I sprayed the shit out of them with suede protector and they will become Beater Desert Boot that looks good with light welt/edge trim. They call it a Military Chukka.
