The structure of our shoe leather will open up and create a more comfortable fit across the width of your foot, but not the length. Therefore, width should be quite firm yet comfortable, but your toes should not be close to the end.

Ensure any areas with stitch details (especially on the bone or on the instep) are completely comfortable as these areas are unlikely to give.

Some leathers take longer to open up (patent , high-shine, metallic) but if worn in short 3-4 hour sessions initially they will adjust accordingly.

Tips of your toes must be comfortable as the re-enforced toe cap will not adjust with wear.

Higher arches are most comfortable in shoes that allow for adjustment on top of foot (ie. derby lacing), open ballet or pump styles, or  shoes described as being deeper in the upper.

Fit to your larger boot, and allow 5 mm of usable space in front of your toes before the shoe shape starts to taper in (space you can actually move forward in as you walk – not just the pointed vacant area at the end). 

If there is movement when you walk, employ a half insole at the front of the shoe to help lift your foot backwards into a firm position.
