    Hmmm. I will wait for others to chime in. Perhaps you are correct.

    taxgenius,

    Rain is wider than 348, but narrower than 337 and about the same as 341 on my feet, maybe a hint more snug.

    You will need a 9.5 for sure if you are going with the Rain and the 337 is 'snug'.

    FWIW, it looks a lot like a more 'sculpted' version of the 348, if it makes any sense.

    I'm wondering if statements that the Rain fits like the Inca are accurate. I've tried the Inca, and it fits me well.

    There was a reason it was half-priced ...

    msart - I actually recently contacted Betty about that exact model in black calf. Glad to see they are apparently in stock, as I am still waiting to hear back. Like others have experienced, my previous conversations with Betty have taken a while to get started, but she always responded and was very helpful in the ordering process. Enjoy them and hopefully I will join you soon...

    Wait, so does that mean that the 341 is narrower than the 337?

    The 337 is snug for me in a 6 UK, so I thought that I would be ok with a 6 Rain, but maybe I actually need a 6.5?
