    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    The nearest REI is about an hour away from me, and I wont be able to drive out till next week. May have to end up doing that though.
    The person I bought the carpe's from had half a thin sole glued in them, and after taking them out I found out the left shoe has a bump going across the width of thee original insole. Now looking at it its pretty easy to see, and if I run my finder over it you can easily feel it. I am pretty sure that is what is making my foot hurt when walking, and the cause of my instep being too tight.
    Hmm... not sure what I should do, any ideas?

    Pretty sure the Carpe 7 holes weren't there a few days ago. Hope they are still available.

    @BlahBet How far is the nearest decent cobbler? There are many things that can be done; use a half insole, just some plain foam padding (cost $1), or have a cobbler fix it.

    If that is not an option, you can get all the insoles from Zappos delivered to your house and keep what works.

    I found that this cut was a little difficult to fit into, for me. Very narrow on the torso but shoulders were wider and super long arms. I had to size up and it still didn't feel right....
    Anyone else have any experience with it?

    BTW eck, what size did you get for the MA+ backzip?

    Pretty much as you describe and kind of m.a.+'s fit. He's known for absurdly long arms. I have the biker jacket in cordovan and linen. They fit me perfectly in torsobut my shape (Thick chest in depth with pretty big drop) is pretty weird and you just kinda let the arms stack. The blue and red iterations of the leather biker jacket as pretty awesome in color, but yeah would have to see if the fit works for you.

    Both the M.A+ back zips I have now are sz41- I sold the 40 in vachetta because after an hour or so of wearing them, they starting feeling a bit tight. I have to use insoles with the m.a+'s in sz 41 (spenco comfort r/x).

    I'm about an hour and a half away from LA so I'll go to a cobbler there, and see if they can fix it... I do not want to have to get rid of these...
    Thanks for the help everyone, I appreciate it

    re: insoles of CDiem

    If they are the flatter toe box models you need a super thin insole like Tacco or the instep will break you foot.

    Bubble toe models you have bit more leeway for a thicker athletic type insole.
