Back side of the Sinatra..
guys, I bought 5 pair of G&G's during the Barneys sale, love them but I have a problem on most of them; while they fit I must have a weird shaped foot in that the right top of the right shoe digs into my nerve just below the ankle bone. It is incredibly painful, I have bought a single heal insole which has fixed the problem. I'm wondering if anyone else has had this problem and also if there is a more elegant solution to this? I'm afraid if I buy some G&G insoles the shoe would be too tight.
I guess you just have to tie the shoelaces looser.
I have a similar problem with the nerve too. Double monk with the elastic band seem to be just perfect.
Nice in Racing Green, and Strand bag in London Tan

You know this could be an issue of balance...if your foot tends to roll outward, for instance, or if the shoe itself tends to roll inward. It could also be simply a matter of too high a lateral topline.
My Sinatras (TG73) on their maiden voyage. Still have not mastered the art of the Spoo pic; such is life I suppose. Thanks to Nick at Bespoke England for his wonderful service.

Sinatras are such nice shoes. They really show how nice that last is IMO.
