I have an extra wide foot with a high instep so even fakey latchets aren't comfortable. A bar shoe would be good and I've surfed for hours each time I start up something Tudor and can't make a decision about which Mary Janes have the least contradictions. Right now 'm looking at these because they come in extra wide. Anyone have any other suggestions? Would a suede be better?
