    I have a high instep and none of my shoes tough edges. If the edges touched, my foot would be swimming in the shoes. I don't have a problem with it - I figure that's what the tongue is for. Chris

    I'm surprised no one has answered this. I too am interested in the chili Dalton since the special color is only available during this sale. I already missed the bourbon and walnut shell versions last year.

    These are Bradley's that i've had for almost 2 years.
    Mine have the raised stitching. I would assume that all the shell versions would have this.

    I've tried several times to get this pic to work but the link keeps getting broken. Sorry about that.

    Here's a picture of my 2 years old burgundy shell Bradleys:

    The Bradley is a Norwegian Split Toe, and I thought these type of shoes should have raised stitching for the apron and split tow. I'm not sure if I've ever seen a pair that has flat stitching.

    What is the name of the file? It looks to be censored...

    You absolutely have the right to return if the pictures did not reveal the spots. And you should get your shipping refunded as well. What you should not do, though, is threaten negative feedback regarding lack of accurate pictures as part of a negotiation to get a lower price. That's why I said keep them or return them.

    I certainly didn't mean to imply I would threaten anyone...

    I have a high instep, too, and I can't get a good fit with any shoes that close completely. Mine are similar to yours in the second picture. I agree with Chris, above. I know the general consensus is to have the laces completely closed, but none of my shoes do. But I actually think the slight V look looks good. Also, my dress oxfords have the tongue sewn to one side, to make sure it stays in place. I think this is exactly because it sometimes shows and should be properly aligned. All in all, yours look fine to me, and I wouldn't sweat. My opinion...

    Yes. They vary quite a lot.

    Those are nice. I wasn't even really aware they existed. I guess that's another one for the list.

    Thanks! Perhaps my terminology is inaccurate. The stichting looks different to me between the shell and calf versions. The shell version (http://www.allenedmonds.com/aeonline/producti_SF2291_1_40000000001_-1) seems to have a ridge on the top of the stitching, whereas the calf version (http://www.allenedmonds.com/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/producti_SF2201_1_40000000001_-1) seems to be more flat.

    The top pair are too wide, lace is too closed. Bottom pair is too narrow. If you have a steep instep, try bluchers.
