LOVE the Style, but no give in width--pinched but I MODIFIED BY WIDENED BY REMOVING THE STITCHING WHERE THE SHOE TIES

Really wanted to wear these, Timberland is great but these were so painful, NO GIVE in the leather. Couldn't wear them long enough to soften and stretch the leather, and break them in. I came up with the idea of removing the stitching under the tongue where the shoe ties. THIS SOLVED THE PROBLEM! I went to my closet to find other shoes that I could widen this way that tied in the front and where loosened leather wouldn't be obvious and was able to make others comfortable that had pinched but kept; couldn't part with them. Glad I didn't throw them out now.. FURTHER THOUGHT ON THIS IS THAT AN INVISIBLE OR COLORED TIE/CORD MATERIAL THAT STRETCHES COULD REPLACE THE STITCHING WHERE NECESSARY.
HOPE THIS HELPS OTHERS WITH SENSITIVE FEET. One of my feet has a slight bunion.
