I have a fit question. I recently picked up a pair of C&Js in US size 9.5D. I generally take a 9D US. These shoes are on the 236 last, which is not particularly long. These shoes fit great in the width over my instep and the heel. I have a relatively high instep, so the lacing does not even close up on top. The length is kind of longer than my other shoes My question comes down to: How important is the length of the shoe? If it fits everywhere else and does not slip, is the length that important?
