Although it wouldn't quite go with a tuxedo or a three-piece business suit, the Thun is a nice all-round kybun men's shoe if you want one in a slimmer profile. With a smooth black, pebble-grain leather upper, it can still go great with slacks and a sports coat for an evening at a restaurant or a movie. But with looped eyelets accommodating wide shoelaces, and extra ventilation on its tongue, it's also made for serious walking (in comfort), whether all the way up to the bleachers at a game, or all around a park or walking trail, or all about a picturesque town like the Swiss one it's named after.

This can be described as an "Apron Toe Derby" style shoe: meaning it has open lacing, and, rather than having a single piece of pebbled leather all the way from its toe to the top of its tongue, there is a break in it -- with a one inch section of the tongue being just mesh fabric, for improved ventilation -- followed by an additional piece sewn on top, as shown here (with enhanced brightness to make it more visible). But when the broad laces are done up, this will not be apparent to others.

For kybun models with a 'Slim Fit' sole and a correspondingly narrow (or medium) upper like these, some retailers advise that although the regular kybun sizing chart may be fine if you have relatively narrow feet throughout, you should actually go either a half or a full size higher than that, if they aren't -- depending on which part of your foot is widest -- as shown in a table on our Recommended Sizing for some kybun Footwear with "Slim Fit" Soles page.
The net impact of this is that if you have fairly wide feet, you should probably just go ahead purchase the U.S. or European size you normally wear, even if the standard kybun table indicates it should be a smaller size based solely on your foot length.
