     Guys, which Carmina last do you find closest to Hiro last? I am size 10.5 D US. I had ordered 9.5 UK in Hiro last. Meermin sent me size 10 UK but fortunately that was perfect fit. Hiro last just hugs all my foot without being tight, just perfect fit. I have tried Simpson ( in size 9.5 UK and size 10 UK) but instep is way too low, width wise size 10UK was ok actually. Forest in size 9.5UK (E width) was way too tight. Rain in size (9.5 UK) seemed little loose (even...
 Thanks Gianni for your detailed reply. I really appreciate it and will definitely keep in mind when I make the purchase. I agree with the comparison being apples vs. oranges.

    Thanks a lot guys for your replies, really appreciate it. I will order Bestetti soon I guess.

I will put details of the fit compared to Hiro later. Shoes arrived almost flawless. Leather is very nice. Here are quick shots.
