If you've mentioned this earlier, the discussion could have been prevented. Note that I didn't say you're wrong. I didn't even say I am right. I merely transmitted some information to the OP with the explicit note that I have no information about other sizes.We could have also saved some time if you'd just answered OP's question.
It's quite normal that two people can have different experiences and opinions about the relative fit of two lasts (including width).To quote you:So, how do you know that your experience is a better predictor than another man's experience?
According to the data available at Sizeadvisors:Going up half a size would work, but the fit will not be as good, if the Capitel last in F fits very well (ie. 4 out of 4 stars). There's no information when happens when using the same size.Hope this helps.
No offence, but you shouldn't compare yourself to others.With a foot length of 263mm, your reference size are UK 8 and US 9. This means, the sizes of your shoes should be as close as possible to these reference sizes.Otherwise you don't have enough toe room. The common recommendation is at least 13mm added to your foot length. That's 1.5 units.My guess is that your foot volume is probably relatively low compared to the average, since your shoes are quite a bit smaller. In...
Stand upright.Measure from the back of the heel to the tip of the longest toe.That's it, basically.So, you either need someone to help you, or you build a kind a measurement devise yourself. It's not that complicated: Two pieces of paper, a measurement tape, and a pencil.
It is quite common for people with wide feet to order larger sizes (and thus longer shoes) compared to what they should wear given their foot length.For example, with a foot length of 272 mm, your reference size is UK 9 / US 10. As you can see, your AE are already half a size longer than ideal.The Meermin are going to be one full sizes "too long", strictly speaking. That means the shoes are about 8.5 mm longer than ideal. It's probably not that big a deal as long as you...
Generally speaking, the US and UK sizing systems work by (1) turning your foot length into shoe sizes, and (2) then add a special number. That special number used to be the allowance - the space between your toes and the tip of the shoe. The meaning got a little bit lost when shoe making turned into an industry, but the effect is the same.The AE sizing guide uses 2 units but people find shoes fit better when using 1.5 units, on average. This is where the suggestion comes...
IIRC, Bengal-Stripe offered the best description I've come across: A shoe should feel like a firm handshake from the heel to the ball, and your toes should have enough room to play the piano.Additionally, there should be a space of about 1/2 an inch from the tip of your toes to the tip of the shoe, but this is hard to test correctly. It should be sufficient, however, if the size of the shoes are close to your measured size.The problem with pre-selecting a certain model is...
Thanks Well, salesmen like to sell. That's why they want you in the shop. Most of them also don't care about fit, as long as you have money to spend.For what it's worth, the data tells a different story. People with your foot length usually wear shoes in UK 8.5 when they have an average foot volume (widths, girths).Your foot volume is below average (ie. narrow heel and ball, low instep) which is why you need to size down to reduce the volume of "normal" shoes. Then, the...
Because a foot length of 270mm equals a UK 8.5 (assuming correct measurements, of course). Shoes in UK 7.0 or UK 7.5 are too short.Just saying. No offense!
