Is he flat footed? That would change how we respond to the arch measurement, and could explain why he was swimming in them.This is where that device gets tricky. Both feet have a ball length of 9.5. But foot length is 8 and 9. Width at 9.5 is a D on the left but a heavy C on the right. Personally I would not go shorter than a 8.5. I think the right foot would get hammered in a 8. If I was fitting those measurements I would be 9C maybe or 8.5D. I have very similar measurements and wear 9.5B or 9.5C. But I am .5 longer in length and one width smaller at the ball. Can you find a 9C in a 65 last and have him try it on? The vintage Florsheim 93602 fits a little narrower than the 65 last with about the same length. The cone is a little lower also. At the end of the day he has to be comfortable and I have no idea if he is used to a looser or tighter fit. But I would at least start at 8.5 and see how that fits.
