A poorly thought out work of art

This is a very well constructed boot. They are a gorgeous work of art. The materials and craftsmanship are absolutely top notch. This is a pair of boots you can wear for years and years, resole and recraft, and keep going. However, they have one monumental shortcoming if you have wide feet. Let me explain: I ordered a 14 Wide and sent them back. The boot is not crafted with a wider sole – they added more leather to the body of the boot to allow for more width. Even with the boots being new and needing quite a bit of breaking in, my foot was pushing out past the edge of the sole. Just standing in them was uncomfortable – it's like standing on the edge of a board. The footbed on this boot is very narrow and appears to be based on traditional European lasts, so if that's your foot type, you're good. If you have a wider, flatter foot, this boot is a really, really bad choice you should stay away from. I give it 2 stars because of the craftsmanship, but huge deducts for being either too cheap or too lazy to use the proper footbed and sole for a wide boot.
