    You'll probably have to try on some shoes yourself and see how it feels on your feet. Personally, if I was in between a B and C, I'd probably go with a C width, because if the shoe is too tight then it will start to hurt your feet after a while, and unless the leather stretches there's nothing you can do about it. If it's just a tad on the wide side, you can just lace them up tighter or wear some thicker socks. But again, every shoe is different - for instance in the Barrie or Trubalance last you may need to go down to a B, because those lasts are generally wider than many others.

    I believe the sizes ordered were for more common sizes. I wonder is this was a pilot run for them to see the demand.

    hopefully....maybe we're on the verge of seeing a return of more #4 shoes? I'm not sure how scarcity usually works with shell colors, but I assume it's possible for the rarity of each color to change from time to time.

    I looked through the thread and couldn't find the answer: did the #4 wingtip boots come from TSM?

    yep, and you may still be able to order them depending on your size.

    #8 long wings are, in my experience, one of the most versatile shoes. Only time I don't even consider wearing them is with black pants. Great shoes! And my contribution: 403 Indy boots at the end of their first day in the wild: [​IMG]
