The 724 last is pretty nice. It's not elongated, but it's still pretty elegant and classy. I do have small feet, so I prefer the slightly longer lasts. The Moore's run about 1/4" shorter than my Lodger Hamiltons and almost 1/2" shorter than the C&J westbourne. There's a lot of room in the toe box similar to the Tricker's 4537 last which is really nice for wider feet, but there's a high instep that required a thin tongue pad to lace tight against the top of my foot. Other than being a little wide, I think they fit pretty true to size.
Sorry, should have said "marine cordovan." It's a dark burgundy.
thanks for the information.... one more question ... who makes it? what brand? thanks again
