Hi man i believe it will on pressure/usage but really like that shape and just let it go and see. I think it will stay more or less like on my buco meaning no collaps unless you force it imho. Thx Sir

The^ HH on the classic narrow look to be drool worthy perfection! Can't get along with the bulbous toe of the work round though.

Thanks for posting man, you should chime in around here more often.

About 9 months ago I ordered these. Send them pictures from their own blog and told them my shoe sizes from different brands, and it was a go. Surprisingly they didn't ask for a deposit, so after about 6/7 months I asked if they forgot about me. They didn't, and here they are.
natural latigo leather on CN last, with soft toe and a thin dress half sole and catspaw heels.
The leather is very thick and sturdy. When I first put them on, I couldn't get my left foot in, so started to sweat. Used a plastic bag and slid right in. The fit is very narrow especially on the instep.
They needed to get stretched a bit so I put on 3 pairs of thick ski socks and a plastic bag and I crammed my feet in. Tried to wear them like that for a few hours per day. That didn't really work. So filled it up with warm water let it soak for half an hour and put them on to work, from 9 till 9.
Immediately I felt the leather to loosen a bit. They didn't dry in one day, it needed 3 days to completely dry. I still needed to use a plastic bag to get them on for the next 4 days, during those days I put on and off severall times. Now its all good, still snug but I guess thats the CN fit.

Some pictures, the last one came from Clinch to show they were done and cough up the dough.
Looking at the pictures I see that the left boot is a bit shorter, The left boot is also the hardest to get in.
