I tried several times but always hurt me on the back bone of the foot. Seems the shape is not for me
It is the same things for C&J. I have the choice between too wide or to short. Unfortunately, Church's fits me the best. My last one are a master class and they fits very well, do not hurt me really for my first wear (today). Have someone the same problem with Green or C&J?

I found that my Greens fit better after a good wearing. They break in fairly quickly and dramatically. But, of course, if you are experiencing pain this might not be something that will go away with wear. Incidentally, I had a pair of shoes that were at one point comfortable but then started giving me the exact pain you are describing. It is really painful.

Why are you so disappointed with your Church's though? I think they make a great shoe, especially the Custom Grade. And very comfortable.

Church's soles are not very hard wearing.

Master class is correct but overpriced at more than 500 euros. For this price you get a C&J or even some Green (may be need a small discount during sales).

Church's are confortable that's true.


Were your shoes Green?

Ernest - un "last" c'est la "forme a chaussure" et non pas la 'derniere fois'. Toutes les chaussures Green sont disponible en plusieurs formes:
202
606
808
888
89
82 etc.

Thanks for the clarification - my 1960 Larousse only gets me so far...
