    thanks for the info. Unfortunately your posts just makes it seem that the C width might work. I have to go to the 8E in Barrie because in the 8D my toes hit the top edge of the shoe!
    - just as you described - so I am faced with the choice of 8.5D which is a bit long, or an 8E which is a bit wide. It would be a little indulgent to book a holiday in NY or SF *just* to try on a shoe in a very limited size ..... but perhaps not impossible ..... apparently there are other thing to do in NY other than try on shoes!

    Alden NY, GG. Went with my Barrie size. There is some heel slippage but unlike an LHS, it totally doesn't matter. I didn't even notice until I concentrated on it. As someone wrote earlier, it's the kind of fit that, when I'm not looking down at the shoe, and just walking, my feet say "yeah."

    I think our boy BeSpiff just coined a valuable phrase and standard...

    Those are hot! I really like the look of the Plaza last. I am on JG's list for a pair of those but look like it's going to be a long wait.

    I agree. In the words of Sammy Davis Jr., those boots cook AND swing!

    I particularly like how the sole gives the toe a slightly more rounded look.

    Very nice RTP. I know you've wanted these for awhile. Congratulations, may your feet be happy, and wear them in the best of health my friend. By the way, this guy is home on Friday night buffing shoes.

    I was itching to tee it up this afternoon. Unfortunately mother nature grumbled and cried all afternoon. I brushed and conditioned a few pairs of shoes as I watched Tiger completely blow up an excellent round...
