Two things. Kavalier said one have to mention one wants a wider shoe. Is that correct or is o le one last?

The second, and hateing being so insistent. I didn’t see the option for subtle brougomg. Was that option discarded or one must make an special rwuest?

I'm confused: I only see calfskin and suede but no cordovan?

Never mind: I used the link from the Archibald email I received 2 hours ago and not from within here.

OMG, the natural cordovans are to die for!!

I would say EE even though TheKavalier defined it as a G here. We always send size guide with foot measuring, so sizing shouldn't be an issue, hopefully
Wow. That is quite wide. Curious what % of male population needs a EE width. I am sure it varies based on location.

Ah see but the Last 001 these are built on are a great shape as the accomodate narrow and wide feet simleutaneously. It was specifically chosen for its versatility and something similar was used by a number of brands including George Cleverly as their best selling shape.

There's a slight glitch on the website that seems to be duplicating listings for the Cordovan on the category page, product is still up and running though! Tomorrow the glitch should be fixed
While you're at it: for me it's also impossible to change colors on the cordovans. I've not tried different browsers yet but at least that's the case for Chrome on macOS (I'm also sometimes getting the "Connection Lost" modal, but a simple reload fixes this so this isn't as bad as the inability to configure my shoe).

Edit: I've attached a picture of the "Connection Lost" modal

I partially agree that the last, shape and especially the heel shape can help a wide shoe stay on a more narrow foot but my decades of experience with a B/C width foot taught me that while I can "fit" my foot into a wide shoe it doesn't mean it fits, is comfortable or looks good after a few wears. 99% of men can wear a size 58 long sport coat but it truly only fits a handful.

Agreed wholeheartedly but I do think it comes down to how a specific shape accomodates a wide foot. I think this duality is what made brands such as GC and GG and even Berluti to some extent so very versatile with some of their lasts. It is the intricacy of where most feet are wide and accomodating that particular portion rather than creating an overall wide shoe.

Just managed to find a way with Adriano to brogue the shoes after production! We just updated the product page, brogueing is now available on request.
