Hamiltons are lined, so they won't be stretching as easily/much as the unlined moks. It will stretch some - you might consider wedging in a shoe tree with something in that area (maybe a wash cloth? a wood shim?) to add mass to help you stretch. I suggest putting that in after wearing them all day.Hamilton buddies...question for you. These are a little tight around this area, just behind where the broguing cuts across. How likely are they stretch/give there as they break in? If they’re like the same color scheme unlined Strandmok...then I’m sure it’ll be fine. But if not then they might cause irritation
I know sinking in to the cork will help some. I definitely cannot size up any and have them fit the rest of my foot.

I have sold off a few of the Caen boots, but still have 2 pair of Normandy 1.0. They have sort of become one of my actual have to do some work (yard, clean garage, etc) boots. Still have 3 pair of the Caen's as well.I know, if I remember correctly you bought multiple pairs! To me though I wish they had better support/comfort But that’s me being on my feet all day
fair enough, I should have known. I thought they’d fit like the mok in the same color. Oh well.Hamiltons are lined, so they won't be stretching as easily/much as the unlined moks.

I don't feel like I can rely as much on the footbed molding to my food when it's the padded insole, like Hammies.
Yours look hardly distressed compared to the first pair I got, which are MUCH more distressed nowMid-60s today which, to me, is perfect Normandy weather. As much as they look like a sturdy winter boot, that's definitely not their time to shine. Nope, these unlined, leather-soled mofos are mainly for spring through fall. They really are super-comfortable though. I got onboard the Normandy train early and received a pair with a fair amount of factory-made distressing. I kind of wish I'd waited until they toned it down a little bit. I like the distressed look, I just wish more of it was from my own adventures. It's better when your boots just tell your own story.
