    So I've come to the realization that my left foot is a D and my right is an E width. this is not good considering that I have 3 pairs of shell in a 10.5 D on the barrie already. my right foot has always rubbed a bit at the little toe, but I figured it'd go away when I broke the shoes in. that hasn't happened. the left foot feels perfect, which is why I thought i was a 10.5 D on the barrie

    so I guess i'm kind of screwed considering I have 3 pairs of shell that don't really fit right :(

    While I am pleased with the color and fit of my recently-purchased cigar captoe boots, there is an annoying problem with them. Within minutes of me putting them on, the tongue on both boots slips to the outside of my foot. I have a bunch of Alden boots and have never had this problem. Anyone else have it and if so, what did you do about it?

    I had this problem with the left boot. I took it to my cobbler and they sewed one side of the tongue to where the laces are. Worked fine.

    i have this exact same problem. My left foot is an E while the right is a D. I can take either a 12 or 11.5 in the plaza last. If I go with the 12, my left foot will fit perfectly, while the right foot will be too small for the boot. If I go with a 11.5, the left is too tight but the right fits perfectly. While its not an ideal fit, its really not that big a deal either - shoes still fit. I guess the other option would be to go bespoke or mto. scb, I hope you find solace in the fact that you are not alone - many others have fucked up feet
