As I've mentioned more than a few times, I'm having trouble finding shoes that fit my awkward (extremely long but shallow) feet and orthotic insert.

I recently despaired of ever finding a perfect pair of casual boots and bought a Chiltern chukka from C&J. It fits well enough through the foot, but because the orthotic raises me out of the shoe there's a fair amount of heel movement and excess material around the opening.

My question is whether it's possible to take out an inch of leather (in this case, a very soft suede) from the top to reduce the diameter of the opening. Pinning the shoe in this fashion suggests that it will address a lot of my troubles. Can any good cobbler do this?

I think you need to bring your shoes into a cobbler/shoemaker who
makes custom orthopedic shoes, show him your problem and ask
him if your shoes can be altered to fit you.
Your only option may be to get custom shoes.

Another possibility is to get a different kind of custom orthotic. A
podiatrist may be able to advise you there.
