Just got back from the rack and found a nice pair of brown hinsdale for $219 - anyone have experience with these? I still haven't found my perfect size/last combo - i wear an 11d in the 5 last (strands) and they are a touch tight, but manageable - I got these in an 11.5d and they actually fit great. I think these are on the 8 last, it has a euro look to it (at least to me) with a bit longer toe. I did not think I would like this, but I gave them a shot at the price and I think they are cool. Thoughts?
I really like my brown Hinsdales - I like the blucher / wingtip combination.
You are correct - the 8 last (108 last not the 678 last). Same as the Parkland, Vernon, Delray, etc.
