    By crude I mean that the Alaro penny's have a true apron toe like a moccasin. The join where the two pieces of leather looks a bit rough and ready,
    I'd prefer something like the below which looks sleeker, similar to the C&J Sydney.

    It might not be relevant, but if I recall correctly the Alaro last is a moccasin last. The upper is one piece of leather and then they glue a sole to the bottom. I agree it looks... very casual.

    And, as someone with a moderately wide forefoot and moderately high instep, I can only just fit into the standard Rain. The EE rain is a good fit. If you are 9EE on the Rain, moving up another half size to fit the Uetam/Simpson will not work. Not only will it be too long, it will still be too narrow and too low in the instep. I have never really understood this compulsion to move up in length to get the right width. It is a fool's game. Get a size that fits you properly.

    What are the chances that we could get this thread re-named?? haha. I know I shouldn't be looking at this site at work, anyway, but if I do have it open I'd rather it not say anything having to do with p0rn at the top. Am I the only one?

    My wife to be glanced at my phone the other day and asked why I was watching porn when I received an email update about this thread.

    Needless to say, she's still my wife to be...
