    Thanks. It is a horrible issue that I lost some weight and my feet becomes slimmer. The 8.5EE is now a bit wide and instep a bit high. Thick socks can help for instep although.

    Actually I consider selling them

    I probably haven't given them enough wear to say with any certainty how the fit is but so far so good.

    ^It's the standard height for JLP bespoke, but they will do whatever you want if you prefer lower or higher.

    @Mark Lee Jin Yi What shoe trees do you use for William II? I just saw John Lobb made lasted trees for the 9795 last, that is William last which they claim to fit perfectly. The shape really does differ to their generic trees, so I guess this could be a good investment.

    Thank You guys!

    Actually the price of William lasted trees is the same as their Generic shape tree. I would never consider buying JL generic trees though as I think 30$ saphir generic tree will do equally good job. Once it's not lasted, not much of a difference to justify the price gap IMO.
