Classic style, old-fashioned fit

These are quality shoes, made from robust leather and durable rubber. I'm impressed with the workmanship.Because my feet are flat and narrow, I generally have trouble finding traditional oxfords that fit. Not surprisingly, I found this true with the Dunham Battery Park Waterproof Oxford. I ordered a B width, but still found them roomy.After inserting a used footbed from an old pair of New Balance cross trainers beneath the existing footbed, and re-lacing them corset-style to maximize their tightness, things improved. Since my foot sits low, the top rear of the shoe tends to dig into the space between my heel and ankle.But I haven't given up yet. I'm still working with them. I expect as the leather softens, these will become old trusted friends.
Wears this shoe: So far, only in leisure time.
Finally, I have found a dress shoe.

My feet are very spoiled being in comfortable walking shoes or low-heel dress shoes and sandals most of my adult life. For about the past decade I have had a growing foot pain problem, and recently plantar fasciitis. I also have pronation and hammertoes. I have looked far and wide for a closed-toe shoe that would work as a dress shoe that is also comfortable. This shoe will fill the bill nicely.
Wears this shoe: To church or anywhere I would wear a dress/skirt.
Wore matching blisters on the inside of my heels.

I wore these around the house to try them out and got matching blisters on the inside of my heels. The seam that attaches the decorate leather band to the shoe goes down the the sides of the heel. Even though there is a liner that covers these seams, these shoes wore blisters very quickly.
Wears this shoe: Never. I had to return them
