    Very nice. I'd be scared to wear my nice shoes at Lake Ontario.

    Still open
    I'm an Engineer and because of this I believe the gap's role is to provide room for adjustment, i.e. to adjust the pressure on your insole and how much pressure the heel exerts on the rear of the shoe: the fit.
    Since every foot is different, some have higher insteps than others, and the RTW shoe is made for the average foot.
    In my case, all the RTW shoes I have are good fits; but because my insteps are higher, the slit's opening varies from manufacturer to manufacturer; in my opinion, the opening should be 4-5mm (less than 1/8") at the topline. A closed slit means, again in my engineer's opinion, that there is too much room in the shoe.
    I don't have, and I have not seen any bespoke oxfords so far, but I believe even in that case there is a slight opening in the lace slit.
    This is my opinion and you don't have to agree.
    Thank you.

    I respect your opinion and I could see your point. I guess it could also in the end come down to how someone likes their shoes to fit.



    Yep, Lake Ontario is just very close to my house though.

    I don't think you are, but if you're near Michigan area, it be ideal to meet another SF member.

    Right now is rifle season for deer.
