Bump for park last help
Anyone with Park last experience?  I've got a pair of the classic line double monks on the hiro last (which I would assume fit differently than an oxford) in a UK6 and am wanting to get on park lasted adel that's being offered up in the group MTO program right now.  Does the park last fit like the carmina rain last, specifically in the waist/instep/vamp area?  I wear a uk5.5 in the rain last because there is so much volume in this part of the shoe on the rain last.  I...
