post #58291 of 70737
Just to add my experience - I wear the same size in both the 5-65 and 108 last.

Can find the original post, but someone was asking about the San Marco fit. I wear a .5 up from my 5-65 size. If you have a wide foot, you might consider going up in width as the tow box is pretty narrow. Works well for my narrow foot, but just something to keep in mind.

Not necessarily longer so much as narrower in the toe box. I found it to be roomier in the heel than the 5 last in the same size, so I decided to go down in length, but that decision required me to go up in width.

 

I can wear 8 E or 8.5 D in most lasts, it just depends on the particular shoe and style, and how I want it to fit.

So, LE, would you say that the Harrison is not the best choice for someone with a low instep/flat foot? There's a pair in my size on the shoebank that I have been resisting. the recent pics had me about to pull the trigger, but your post has me rethinking now.

Digging my new Kirkwood's that came in despite getting the wrong color. Hell of a lot better than my Sperry's.

I wouldn't say that. The Harrisons have a tad more room on the instep compared to the Park Aves. They fit my feet very similarly to csmitty's...

Two years ago, the AE salesman measured me as 11D, but according to my sizing experience with the printed paper, I'm thinking I should be an 11C. Does anyone have similar feet and experience with the Strands? Or recommendations on whether to go with the D width versus the C width?


I measure 10.5C and wear a 9.5D in the 5 last. They are a little tight the first couple of wears but after that, they are perfect. For other lasts, 10D on the 108 and 606.  For the 511, I wear 9.5D in boots and 10D in shoes.  All a bit tight at first but I prefer it that way.  My 1st AE was a merlot Mcallister in 10D. Afterwards I wished I'd gotten the 9.5D.  I'm thinking about the Williams on the 222 but have never tried that last. I hear it's tricky and really narrow so I will probably have to try something in that last before I buy.  If I had to guess, I'd say 9.5E.

 

If you talk to a SA, they can usually get you in the right size.

Nice!

 

Meant for the MTO thread? I do think this looks better on the 333 last (is that the 333?) than it would look on the 5.

Received my Ralph Lauren Singletons in snuff suede and could not be happier with them. The fit seems to be spot on. I love the look of them.

So - 1.) would you still say they run short; and 2.) Hell of a lot better than sperry goldcup authentic original penny's?  Really?

Not sure if it's a 100% apples to apples comparison, but I own the Player in walnut calf which at least looks a lot like the Williams - I would agree with everyone else's feedback about the San Marco - the width was definitely on the narrow side.  But with the Player, I easily took the same size as with the 65 last and it was fine.  Little shorter, definitely not narrower.

Good catch @rostov... Will repost. Join in! The MTO is on the 5 though. I like the 333 myself! :)

Thank jfo. A local Nordstrom SA fitted me earlier at 10D (in between 10C and 10D actually) so I guess this is where I stand. Feels weird, as all my other shoes are at least size 10.5 except for size 10 boots.
