    are you asking a question ?
    I'm so confused, I'm not sure if I lost my horse or found a rope.

    Tried 2 pair of New Balance MT710G02. 13, 2E - too long too narrow, then 12, 4E - short and pinching outside toes, both feet.
    About to give up on NB then weighed them.
    NB MT710G02. 12, 4E 10.4 Oz (left shoe)!
    Keen Targee II 13's - 21.6 Oz (left shoe)!
    Ordered a pair NB MT910RDs in 12.5, 54E.
    One more try.
