Oh, of course. lol8[1].gif

Morning gents! Anyone else notice creasing on the toe box?? Seems a little odd.

My U Last monks crease in the toebox. Still love them, though.

@peppercorn78, don't get me wrong, i still love em with everything i got hahajaa. It's just, would be perfext without that creasing on the toe box. Little intricacies that would be nice not to have, but im guessing its probably due to the structure of some of our feet, yes?

Single Sole + Rubber toe tips


 

 

 

Valaway High Boot. F Last

On the u last with toe box creasing... Did you size up? I did .5 from f last and I got a toe box crease. I suspect that they are just too long ad naturally crease there as your foot moved and you walk. I wouldn't siZe up again but personally I prefer F last anyway.

I took the same size in both U and F last as was recommended, thanks

If that's for me....the sizing is perfect. But I have a bunion on my right foot, so all my shoes crease in that general area.
