    I'm looking for a pair of chukka boots, preferably in suede. The problem is that I have wide feet (I wear an 8EEE in the Allen Edmonds 5 last, though I can squeeze into an 8.5E on this last), and I am having trouble finding a pair that I think will fit me.

    I was looking at the Loake Pimlicos--does anyone have any experience with these and how they fit? I gather that the F width for Loake is their "Normal" width, so I'm not too optimistic, but perhaps if I size up...

    Any other suggestions? Allen Edmonds has been my go-to as they are one of the few makers who produce wide sizes, but they seem to have discontinued their Malvern.

    *Bump*

    Anyone? I don't think the Loakes are going to fit me--any suggestions for a wide-fitting chukka?

    Bump as I'd love to know the answers and was looking at the Pimlico as well. FYI AE just re-released the Dundee, but for now it's shell only.

    Replying to my own thread so hopefully someone else can get some use out of it--I ended up getting the suede chukkas from Charles Tyrwhitt, which are rebadged Loake Kemptons. Tyrwhitt sells a wide size of them. I sized down a half size (to 8EE from my normal 8.5EE) and they fit perfectly.
