Tempted to buy these in carbon before time runs out but spooked by all the discussion on fit. I do not have any shoes on this last. I typically buy a size 10D on the 65 last. Any thoughts on what size to order on this last?
Do you have a lot or decent toe room on the 65? Is your instep high? This last is shorter, flatter, and wider at the ball of the foot. If you need a lot of break in on the 65, I would be inclined to go 10.5D. That would give you a little more chance to fit the cone and give you the toe room that you would need. But if you get total closer and 65 10D is completely comfortable, then I would stick to 10D. Shoes are still being made in D width and the shoe is returnable. Keep in mind that until the 27th they will still make a size that is not in current stock. It is worth the shot.

Actually have a bit of toe room in 65. Might even get away with 9.5D in that last, but I use a 3/4 Dr Scholls orthotic footbed in all my shoes that takes up a bit of room. When laced the vee is fully closed, so not sure what that says about volume / instep.

I would not step down on the 73. The Chisel takes up toe room.

orthotics complicate everything. I am trying a bigger width or a half-size larger

Thanks.

On a separate note, I was shopping for colored laces for my new Neumoks. It appears the eyelits are the "small" variety according to AE's definition. The laces that came with the two pair vary slightly in diameter. All of the options on Amazon appear to be thicker, even if listed for dress shoes. Does anyone know a brand that is the correct diameter and offers colors such as wine / royal blue / navy / green etc?
