I have weird feet. They are quite small, with a narrow heel and wide forefoot, and the big toe and the next one are exactly the same length. This makes it quite hard to find boots and shoes that fit. With a little patience, I can usually find sports shoes and hiking boots, but decent everyday men's boots and shoes in US size 6 or 6.5 E (eur 38.5) are hard to come by. I can just squeeze my feet into a pair of Dr. Martens 1461s in the 59 last (UK size 5), and after a little break in, they work just fine. However, the Dr. Martens soles are lethal on ice and snow, so Doc boots are out of the question. The best boots I've ever owned were my old fashioned Belgian army boots. Sadly, they have long been discontinued. Norwegian Army M77s are a good fit, but they have a molded sole and don't last very long. I quite like Red Wings, particularly Blacksmiths and Harvesters. However, European stores only stock the D width, which is too narrow for me. Also, the only Red Wing boot available in 6 E is the Beckman. While this is a lovely boot, it has a Vibram sole and heel that leaves the leather exposed in the middle of the sole, under the arch of the foot. I would much prefer a full rubber sole, such as a commando or Dainite sole - or even real crepe (no Christy soles, please). My current everyday boots are Danish Duckfeet. The model is called Fåborg. These are solid, well made no-nonsense boots. Thick, fullgrain Terracare leather and natural crepe rubber soles. They also feature a wonderfully wide and roomy toebox. Alas, the heel is a bit too roomy for me, making my heels slip. The boots are a bit low across the insteps, making it impossible to use extra insoles for a tighter fit. So, my question is as follows: Can any of you knowledgeable forum members recommend a pair of decent looking, well made everyday boots for my strange feet? I know I am rather picky, but here are my requirements: Size: Eur 38-38.5. UK 5-5.5, US 6-6.5 Generous width: US E-EE, UK G. Wide toebox, narrower heel Not too low across the instep Stitched construction (Norwegian welt, stitchdown, veldt, Goodyear ...) Solid full rubber soles with good grip on every surface from tarmac to mud and snow/ice. Decent looks and half civilized style. Think classic British country boots or old fashioned American work boots or field shoes. Old school combat boots or classic hikers (think Danner mountain light) can be OK, but not modern tactical boots or hikers. Polishable, water repellent leather. No suede! Goretex or similar membranes are good, but I do not want any thermal insulation. I prefer plain toes, but simple cap toes are OK. No brogueing (although a simple line across the toe cap can be acceptable). If, by any chance, you find this too easy: I cannot afford to pay more than $480 / 400 Euro / 4000 NOK shipped to Norway.
