Please help w/ C&J Hallam fitting

post #1 of 23
Thread Starter 
Hello,

I'm a sz 9.5 in an Allen-Edmonds Delray. It fits well but is a tad loose.

I'm interested in the C&J Hallam. What size do you guys recommend? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks

UK sizes are 1 full size down - so if you're 9.5, then get a 8.5....however make sure it comes with a return warranty.

Size down 1.

I sized down a full size for the 348 last and the fit is pretty spot on.

Wait for a few more opinions, tho, as I believe I've read that others only needed to size down by half.

go down at least a full size in if you have a narrow foot. I'm 14us, take a 13uk on the 337 last, a 12.5uk on the 348

Travel to a place where you can try one on, and try different lasts. Its worth waiting a bit to do so if need be.

If you get a shoe that's slightly off, you're likely to keep it to save the hassle of mail, and you won't be able to tell if a better size or last fits better than the one you have.

Then you're stuck at non-optimal for 5yrs+

I wear a 9.5D US. I find the 348 *extremely* narrow--the 8.5E is unbearably tight. I find the 9E comfortable--so I size down by half. BUT, I find a 9.5D US to be just right--a good snug fit--not loose at all. So YMMV.

My point included the concept that he will not know whether there is a better achievable fit/last. Your suggestion does not solve this, it only solves situations where the shoe clearly does not fit.

It really depends if your foot is wide or narrow. The 348 last used on the Hallam is long and quite narrow. I believe it's the narrowest last they produce.

So if your foot is on the narrow side, you can probably drop a full size and go for a UK 8.5. If it's wide, you might be better served by a UK 9.

What is your width in the Delray, which you say fits you a bit loose?

Drop a full sized as other have said if your a normal D width (us d).

Thanks everyone for the help

The width in the Delray is a D. My foot is strange in the shoe b/c its a bit loose yet there are tiny areas of snugness ( where my foot is the widest ). But it's comfortable enough to stay securely on my foot while walking.

If it's the narrowest last produced, does that mean it's the slimmest shoe C&J has to offer?

thanks !

It's not C&J's narrowest last: http://www.styleforum.net/showthread.php?p=2414285 It's likely their most elongated though. It's something of a crapshoot, but FWIW, I wear a 9.5E in the 348 and am a Brancock 10.5C. I wear a 10.5C or 10D in the AE #8 last.

I concur with the size 1 size down. I sized 1/2 size down and regret it.
