Looks like there are two versions of the 8 last. I am hoping this is the non-orthodic version- if so then they will be similar to the 2 last. My 2 last shoe is the same as 5 last.

I can see a flood of these hitting Ebay in a month!

I'll echo the to-Canada proxy-fee offer. PM me if there are any takers.

The sale on the Nathans is NUTS! Thanks to whoever gave us the heads up! Grabbed two pairs, Black and Burgundy.

Ordered a few of the Nathans, hopefully they work like my 5 lasts!

The 8 last is narrower than the 5 last.  For me, the 5 last fits great, but the 8 last is too narrow.

Same, but we really should have ordered more for free shipping!

narrower?! Ahh! Should I size up or go wider?

I tried going wider and the heel was too big.  I think the 8 last either works for you or it doesn't.  So, ordering the same size is probably the right way to go.

I am thinking the same. Thanks for the reassurance. fistbump.gif

 

If all else fails, just exchange or return.

Nice work StyleForum! Thanks to the original poster on the Nathan's sale. I don't really need them so if it gets cancelled I will not be too disappointed. But for about $50 a pair that would be a great deal. And I like the shape of the 8 last so may even prefer these to the Fifth Ave's on the 5 last.

If you were a B width, would you take a chance on an A width if you could get the Cambridge Shell Cordovan, worn twice, for below $200?

Has anyone ordered shoes from Jos A Bank before? Does it really take a couple weeks to get them?

Well, presumably, if they honor this sale, they will sell so many that AE will need to make a bunch.

I ordered some but would bet money the order will be canceled.

I'll go with the suggestion of same size.
