Once again, I cannot find a shoe I really like in a size into which I can insert my feet. For many years I wore only Allen Edmonds, and I greatly appreciated the style and craftsmanship. Unfortunately, my feet have gotten much wider, in part due to water retention in my feet and ankles. I now require a 16 6E at least. In this case, I still could not put the shoes on. And, even if I could have, this shoe would still be a major compromise versus my former standard. Literally no company seems to be offering truly fine shoes with leather soles to those of us with extreme size challenges. I am thinking of forming one myself, as I strongly suspect there is a sufficient market to warrant the investment.
