    If you are 10.5 EEE on AE, you should definitely be on 11 G in G&G sizing. MH71/GG06 for captoes and narrower toe TG73/DG06 for non-cap toes.

    At the very last, try 11E since it should be available from most dealers. G width fitting is usually non-stock and has to be MTO'ed.

    Best is to bite the bullet and get bespoke. A whole different construction.

    One of the most beautiful chukka boots ever made. It could not fit or look better even if it was bespoke. Perfection!

    I am in Denver and I go through Nick Anderson at Bespoke England. He is an affiliate vendor on this page, see the links on the right.
    He is a joy to deal with and a cusomer advocate with G&G.

    Nick will work with you on any problem, issue, or satisfaction if something come up. I have done over 15 pairs with him. None better.

    I think you have a similar issue to mine. The length seems fine, but the width is not. Two solutions, 1) go to a G width, & 2) mention to G&G that you have a high instep. They need to expand the vamp a little.

    I had the same problem with the Wigmore boot. The shaft was to small and it would not wrap around my shank.

    Beautiful!

    This is on the TG73 last?

    Would there be any styling issues with opting for the DG70 last on these boots?

    Also, which rubber bottom would you suggest for these (I think they would be amazing "rain" shoes), dainite, crepe or wensum?

    Thanks!

    This is on the TG73 last, but you could do any last you like.
    I would go with the Dainite rubber bottom instead of a ridgway for winter. It is cleaner looking, offers better traction, and last longer. If you want a dreassier option, go wi the wensum.

    I wish I poloished these before posting them. They are better looking in real life than in these pictures. I am sure you all are insightfull people and can look through the little things.
