I think I figured out what is irking me about the fit on these...it's the extra leather above the top of my foot. There is some space between the ridge that comes down the front of the boot and the top of my foot, so when i step it creases up as in the pics. Is this amount of crease normal or are they a little to wide? Thanks. FWIW here are pics of my yearling craftsman I'm wearing today. In the first photo, I pulled out my superfeet black insoles. The boot is fairly loose in the vertical direction, and the vamp has a decent amount of extra space (as you can see by me pushing down on the slack) The next photo is after putting the insole back in: And finally, the crease I get with the insole in: Sorry for the crap cell phone pics, at the office.
