    What would be the best way to get a pair of the Plaza wingtip boots in a EEE width?

    for example, i wear: most nikes: size 10 most vans: size 10 most visvims: size 9.5 chucks: size 9.5 clarks desert boot: 9.5 redwing gt: size 9 (took awhile to break in, sides are slightly snug, length is good) common project achilles: size 42 what trubalance size would be ideal for me? thanks in advance
    Me: clarks: 9.5 achilles: 43 trubalance: 9.5 (but I can also fit a 9) barrie: 9 I would guess a 9 for you, maybe 8.5 if you've got a narrow foot.

    Took my new boots on a hike today. I decided that I'm going to beat on these babies a bit.

    Those are looking really nice. The plain toe boots always look a little boring when new as shown on the sellers websites, but I love every one I've seen once they've been broken in. Good stuff.

    If I didn't already own Vintage Indys, I'd be buying those. I want a PTB but those are just a little too similar.

    Damn, why are Alden shoe boxes so small? I put my cordovan shoes boxed in the suitcase and they got scuffed from such a tight fit!
