Alright guess Ill sleep on it. Too many horror stories on shoe stretching!In that case, I think you can probably gain a mm and change in height. We aren't talking a size up, but I believe a cobbler may provide some breathing space in vertical volume.
Well as an update decided to try stretching them on my own. Since they have lasted shoe trees I started putting thick wool socks on the trees and left on for two days. It has helped with the puff tightness not as much with the width. Some observationsReceived a pair of wholecut oxfords, Emil seems to think they will stretch after a couple of wears. After about 8 wears, mostly inside the house and sitting down they feel about the same. Trying to determine if I keep them or sell them. They make a marking in all my toes. Image below spoilered cause well, my toes...
Edit: just noticed the spoiler does not prevent the image from getting to the gallery lol oh dear.
The decorative stitching at the top of the heels is a neat little touchX post from bespoke shoes thread:
Remote bespoke Winsons - just a bespoke last, regular ‘grandeur’ line workmanship. Haas Utah uppers - I’ll take some proper photos later. Love how the top looks wild with the trees in then straightens out with my foot.
Bespoke definitely isn’t a regular offering for Emil, at the moment it’s just something he’ll try for friends - he’s very open about having much to learn.
