Since we are asking about sizing, should I take the same size in 3636 as I do in New Peter?

I have two Old English 2, 38.5 F (normal width) which I am wearing two thin leather insock (by Vass). (two in each shoe).  This should be roughly translated into 0.5 size difference.  So after those,  I bougtht 38E (narrow last), not OE2 but oxford style shoe again.   Length is OK but not snag.

 

Having said that, all of those are really comfortable to wear.  Heel and insteps are holding well and their sole and upper are quite soft so added insocks do not bother me at all.
 

It could be just me and I have a narrow foot.

Yes. Metal tap on single sole, which was essentially a mistake. Was supposed to be on a double sole. Vass prefers rubber tap on single it seems.

they advised me to not put any taps on single sole. already regretting it - disliking the way the bare sole wears down even after just a few wears. will have to rectify it locally.

Did you give Rezso your UK-size, or Eu? It has been mentioned here many times, that you should always convert your sizing to Eu yourself, since Vass for some reason tend to convert UK a bit wrong, which results in often too large shoes when customers go by this advice. I'm actually surprised they haven't checked this over, since it seems to be very common. I know Rezso reads this thread so he ought to have picked up on that. Should maybe mention it to him directly, they obviously want to give as good sizing advice as possible.

Yeah, got rubber in all of mine single soles. Works great, when the rubber wears out it's usually time for exchange of the sole as well, so they get worned "together" in a great way.

Did you ask for metal or rubber? Metal I know they don't like to do on single soles, since there's a risk that you screw the screws in too long and they come out on top of the welt or insole and you have to throw both shoes away and start again, but rubber they always does.

Here's my best shot at taking some shots comparing the New Peter (the green ones) and the R last. Both are in 45F. New Peter is on a single sole and the R on a double. I also tried to take a few shots of the shoe trees since they are shape specific and I think help to give an impression of the last. I would say that the R has a slightly higher instep, is slightly wider across the ball of the foot or maybe has a slightly narrower waist, is is slightly shorter, and has a more tapered if not chiseled toe box. What do you think?




[New Peter tree on the left, R on the right]



I have the R last pair on with some thicker socks today and while the quarters are still pretty much closed, fit feels comfortable walking around inside.

One other thing I'll note is that my R last trees are marked 11, instead of 45. I'm not sure if that's a UK or US size, though I do happen to be an 11 US.

I like the look of the R last a lot, looks a bit like a wider F last, doesn't it?
post #8700 of 12515
It looks wider that F last, but ends just just as narrow, so it's more triangular/tapered?

Maybe like rain last from carmina?
