This is the Pullman last. Sizing is narrow with low instep. The shoe is size 8, which is also my size for Carmina Rain, JL 9795 last, EG 888 and 82.

 

They are exquisite and I have no doubt they will age wondefullyl.

 

Interesting on the fit - other users have reported wildly different sizing with Corthay compared to the usual (Northampton) suspects.

 

I shall make a visit this year and get measured up. The patinas are just so hard to resist.

Sorry, my size is 7.5 on JL 9795 last. Corthays definitely run narrow and low, and the Pullman is their widest last. Blind buy is not recommended. There are shops in Hong Kong and Beijing now. The purchase comes with shoes trees and they will touch up the patina at any time for free, the leather is very good for such a flimsy looking shoe, construction is decent, so there is some value to the high price.The service is exceptional, in both HK and Paris.

​Thanks for the clarification.

 

Nice to know about the offer of free patina touch up. Sounds like a nice company to deal with.

 

Wear in good health.

Yeah sizing is very interesting. I actually wear a 12.5F on the GG tg73 last and had to do a 13.5 on the Pullman. Gorgeous though. Can't wait for my pairs to come in.

Pullman last is wider fitting (about 5cm) and Corthay comes in US sizes. At least that's what I was told at Leffot.

5cm wider? So 2 inches wider? Or did you mean mm?

Whoops, definitely meant millimeters
