Bourtons in Opera Earth suede arrived yesterday from the BF sale. My first pair of 4444s - really accommodating for wide footed gents like myself. Not sure what the Opera part of the name is all about. Must have just been assembled because the scent of glue and solvent is so strong my wife relegated them to the garage :rolleyes: .

I received my new Tricker’s today but am unsure about sizing for the Bourton. This Bourton is on the 2298 last but seems a bit loose even when tied as tightly as possible. To be fair my feet have a lower instep and low volume, I believe? UK 8.5 just like my 4497 Stow and Eaton that both fit well.

I have little doubt the 2298 boots would fit me fine, but I’m not sure what the solution is on the 2298 Bourton. Just get used to the loose loafer-like fit? Tongue pads? Go down 1/2 size? Or say that the 2298 Bourton just doesn’t work for me. I get that the heel slip may be reduced after breaking in the soles but am also concerned that the CXL stretching and breaking in could counteract that.

I am curious whether I would have these same issues with a 4444 last Bourton. Anyone know? I know to size down to a UK 8 for the 4444 last, but I’m not sure how the instep and overall fit would compare.
