James at the downtown State Street store was very helpful. It seems that I have a wider foot than I thought so I was compensating on the left by getting a larger size. Instead we went from D to E width and down a half size (8 to 7.5) and I think I'm good to go. The 5 last is longer as has been mentioned several times in this thread so 7.5 seems to makes sense for me. Ideally if money weren't an issue I would get all of my shoes MTO and get a different size for each foot but that gets expensive. Now I wait until my new pair arrives.
