    I think you have a similar issue to mine. The length seems fine, but the width is not. Two solutions, 1) go to a G width, & 2) mention to G&G that you have a high instep. They need to expand the vamp a little.

    I had the same problem with the Wigmore boot. The shaft was to small and it would not wrap around my shank.

    Beautiful!

    This is on the TG73 last?

    Would there be any styling issues with opting for the DG70 last on these boots?

    Also, which rubber bottom would you suggest for these (I think they would be amazing "rain" shoes), dainite, crepe or wensum?

    Thanks!

    Thanks for the advice, gents. I'll look at the 11 F or an 10.5 G

    This is on the TG73 last, but you could do any last you like.
    I would go with the Dainite rubber bottom instead of a ridgway for winter. It is cleaner looking, offers better traction, and last longer. If you want a dreassier option, go wi the wensum.

    I wish I poloished these before posting them. They are better looking in real life than in these pictures. I am sure you all are insightfull people and can look through the little things.
