If you're a solid 9 in Hiro I'd be surprised if 42.5 in F works for you. I'm size 8.5 in Olfe and size 42.5 in U is tight at the pinkie toe. I believe Hiro is both wider and higher in the instep than Olfe

I second that. I'm a UK10 in Hiro, and 44G width in F. Would never fit in 43,5F-widht on the F-last.

I am wearing 43 in Hiro, 43.5 in Vass F-Last.

Which size shall I stick with Vass last? Thanks very much!

High instep, 43 wide. Low instep, 43.

But how does one consider himself high or low instep?

Do you consistently have problems with shoes fitting tight over the instep in a standard width? Facings splayed open on an oxford, pain at the instep during breakin? If so, you might have a high instep.

Do you consistently have problems with shoes fiting loose over the instep in a standard width? Facings fully closed with room underneath on an oxford - or wishing you could go past the last button hole on a monk? If so, you might have a low instep.

Can anyone confirm what last this is? It looks like the F-last but I'm not sure about anything from Vass anymore.. (can explain later). If it really is a F-last it's really big for being a 43 compared to my Hiro-last from Meermin.

it would appear to be F last

I think so too. This 43 (9UK) is more like a 44 to be honest so that means that it's run quite big to size.

I'd say that's a pretty sound recommendation from a very informed source.

I want to buy a F last double monk too...for a typical UK9 shall I go down to 42-42.5 instead of 43?

I find it funny that this thread is littered with postings that indicate the F last fits large on most people, with those with wide width and/or high instep being the exception, but people are still going with their direct conversion from their normal UK/US sizes.  I have posted a conversion chart earlier and if you compile even just a handful of sizing posted and study that chart closely, you can work out a fairly accurate correlation between the F last and UK/US sizes.  And yes, the F last do, FOR MOST PEOPLE, fits larger.

It did for me, I went down 1/2 size
9uk
F last 42-5
