    None of those 3 are 'bulky' but the AE massdrop chukkas are definitely the sleekest/lowest profile of the 3.

    I'm not sure why your boot size would be different than your shoe size.

    I have a B width narrow foot. Size is size, but manufacturers don't all make footwear to a he same standard. The differences between lasts, etc. affect how a shoe looks and fits.

    I suppose more accurately stated, I'm looking for a chukka with a profile that compliments my narrow foot.

    I feel your pain. I wear an 11 B, and it took a long time to figure that out. I just picked up a pair of the 1901 suede chukkas in an 11 D, and they fit fairly well. Wore them out over the weekend, and didn't have any irritation. While it's great to find narrow shoes, sometimes you just have to find a decent fit and live with it not being spot on, unless you have the patience to play the shoebank game, or the cash to buy all new AE.

    Do you wear a narrow width dress shoe? So far this boot fits the bill. If the shoe fits...

    I don't. My best fitting shoes are Vans authentics size 12D, and I have the Macalisters in 11.5D. They are slightly too long, but perfect in width. I wear 11.5D Strands, but they are quite snug in the toe box.

    Extremely comfortable and sleek. If you can get past the fact that this boot is made by "Timberland" (albeit much different than the popular boot), this is a great option. Size down one full size.

    I'm just bumping this thread to report that I ordered a pair of the Gosforth II (which are rebranded Loake Kempton), and they arrived today. In my AE Bellevue chukkas, I am a 10E (us); a 9.5F (uk) turned out to be the perfect fit for the Gosforth II.

    I have the Dundee 2.0 in size 13B, and I notice that you wear a B width also.
    A B-width Dundee is going to look sleeker than some other chukka in a D-width. That massdrop chukka seems to be slightly lower profile than the Dundee 2.0. I suspect that is because the Dundee 2.0 contains a poron insole.
    For what it’s worth, I feel like the Dundee is a great look — and the availability of a B-width sets it apart from the others.

    It's not a bad boot, but I bought black and unless the pants go perfectly, they remind me of the boots cops used to wear.
