    The 333 last has a higher instep and is wider across the ball of the foot compared to the 65. It has less room over the top of the ball of the foot than the 201 (which has quite a bit of volume up front), but still plenty. If you're like me and the 65 last has the most tension over your instep, the 333 should fit better.

    @aero25 Embrace the tassels...[​IMG]. Wearing black Jermyns, also have burgundy Grayson and burgundy shell Adams - all good.

    Yup, like I said I actually bought and returned the la Marche - very nice shoes I just didn't expect them to look like that. If you're ok with the look and fit of the Lexington you should be good. Added bonus was I recall it having some version of a minilug sole, which was better than danite.

    My Park Aves in 9D fit well except they are tight in this area:

    I am a D width on the Brannock but I'm guessing the Brannock doesn't factor in that specific area of the foot. I've tried E width but then it's too loose in the heel. Am I doomed to a tight fit in that area on the 65?

    When you tried the E, did you also go down half a size in length? Maybe your toes would still fit but you'd solve the heel problem.

    Yes I did try the 8.5 E and the heel was still too loose...

    It seems like that last just doesn't work for you. Maybe try a Hopkinson for a very similar cap-toe style on a different last (but an extra $100, unless you can find a deal).

    Ive only worn them about 7-10 times. Is this an area that may yet loosen up?

    I'm traveling on business and spent a bit of time in the Allen Edmonds store near Cleveland (Chagrin/Woodmere). It is a very small store, but the SA there was really terrific and very knowledgeable. Didn't see anything I can't live without for the moment, but learned a couple things and really enjoyed talking to him. Highly recommended!

    Looking great in your Brown Shell Strands. I like the color variation on them.

    Truffle Tuesday ( ok, that's a bit of a reach). Truffle a/k/a Capacino McGraws. By the way, they'll waive the restock fee if you pay the return shipping yourself. However, that's usually more than $10 so, player's choice. [​IMG]
