Just got my first pair of Grant Stones, B Grade Dune Travelers, and I am extremely excited. Feeling a little heel slippage though so a bit concerned that I ordered half a size too large. FTR, I'm a 10.5C Brannock and AE 65 Last, but a 10D in 75% or so of leather shoes. I went with a 10D here and have about a thumb-width and some change in room on my larger foot. I seem to remember (backed by a search) that heel slippage tended to subside with the Travelers as they broke in. Anyone got any guidance? With thin socks and tongue pads they aren't too bad, but I want to get it right...

Some thoughts on the loafer last, have you guys considered developing a loafer last with lower or minimal heel, like 0.5cm?

Not saying that you need to make them sneakers, I think you can still remain the loafer appearance, but significantly improve the comfort level, especially after some long walks.
