Would I be correct in saying that most would take the same size in the F last as they do in the P2? If so, what are the differences in how they feel? I am liking the look of the P2 as it looks a bit more forgiving to my eye.
F and P2 yes same size for me and I have a pretty average shape foot. I thought I might be able to go down a half size in P2, but no - it looks roomier than F, but not a half size roomier IMO
re: U last - see post 1127 in this thread. I take a half size up on P2 and F, and that is pretty common according to Eiko at Budapester Schuhe. U is tricky as it has a high instep and is narrower and longer than F and P2.
FWIW I think the 5 eye London U is one of the most simply elegant RTW shoes in existence - only surpassed by the 3 eye U in oxblood also by Vass
compare it to the Lobbs and C&J in this lineup - it's poetry
