So I recently grabbed a pair of size 13D Allen Edmond Malverns as my first set of Chukkas. For reference, a 13C Alden (Plaza last) fits perfectly. AE doesnt make the Malverns in a C width.
As I tried them on for the first time, I noticed the with in the heel and ball area is fine (snug, little lateral room), but I have TONS of room in the toe box. Enough to move my toes quite freely. Enough to feel the front third of my foot is not secure.
Question is, what should I expect when fitting a chukka boot? Should they be as snug as my balmorals or oxfords? If so, has anyone had success sizing down in a Malvern? Or would anyone suggest I try a different pair of chukkas? If so, why?
