Internet WWW has allowed everyone with internet to have an opinion. We all can agree to disgree but lets not forget what brought us all here in the first place.
You do realize this is you posting your opinion here right? I have seen this comment more than once. Funny thing is this is how we have a discussion, by expressing our thoughts, and discussion is good.

But, yes, maybe this is too far, more StC shoes needed in this thread.

Fit is better than @Patrick1053 experienced. Maybe a little right on my pinky toes. The leather on these shoes creases very easily. Does anyone have a view on whether this creasing is in the correct place?

The creasing looks normal to me. Those laces look like they are tightened all the way. How does that feel?

Good point. It is not tight at all. I will need a lower instep, I guess.
Agree that the creasing looks fine. They are trial shoes so the leather here will react differently than the finished article. Those laces close almost too easily, visually that is, and you mentioned they are not tight. Probably a lower instep would not be a bad idea.

I haven't seen pictures of the rest of the fit, but you aren't far off from making them up.

Here are a few more pictures. In the last one I’m indicating where my pinky toe is against the side of the shoe. As you say, these are very close.

One comment I have is the laces are full closed - not a good idea for the future as that space will give you an important adjustment space - not only for the intra-day changes in the foot, but also to compensate for socks and leather stretch and adjustments over time. Just my personal options...

Does it look like I am in search for a dad or a teacher or a preacher ? Did I even ask for an opinion ?

🤔
I must admit I’m a constant violator of sartorial splendor as it were. It is a result of my faulty belief in the personal rule of only dressing for my personal pleasure. I buy what I want, and mix and match it the way I want to. It’s nice to see all of the nice shoes, and clothes as well as the ways that others match things together too. I get it there is an accepted way to do things, but seem to not really like them most of the time. So, for me I choose to go my own way, it’s cool if others don’t like it. After all, it’s really not that important in the grand scheme of things. :thumbs-up:

Fit looks solid all the way around aside from the extra space in the instep, as mentioned previously, and the forefoot area near the pinky.

@daizawaguy mentioned the intra-day changes that occur to the foot. If your pinky toe is digging into that part of the shoe, expect that to exacerbate by the end of the day. Were you to use thicker socks, I would imagine it could turn painful.

Couldnt hurt to perhaps add an addition there or inquire about one. I have one myself from a similar fit issue, and it works like a charm. I would send that picture over Philips way.

Thanks. I shared these and a handful more with Phillip. I’ll talk to him next Week and discuss the fit.
