Anyone have any interest in getting an order for a Robert Derby going? I'm thinking Antique Marron with a dainite sole. It's on the W2298 last, similar to Alden's barrie last, but a little more shapely. Something like this:
But with a dainite sole. Thoughts?
Some people can, I personally find for a good fit with thin socks, an additional 0.5 size down is required. I ordered a pair of Robert derbies once and went with my Barrie size (8). I found them too roomy with thin socks, so I think 7.5 would be a good fit for me. So for you, I would guess you need a 7. Someone else feel free to chime in though.
Im not familiar with the W2298 last, but I can say this, most of the common Trickers Last's 4497 for example Fitting 5, are wider than the Barrie. Although I didnt find it any longer per say.
So it poses a perdicament with Trickers. Either special order a lower width or know that they will fit wider than Alden.
I cannot really speak to vary many other brands other than possibly Wolverine or Viberg.
*Just wanted to add this, I think 4497 is more like a Trubalance in Alden.*
This level of sole thickness (with red Dainite, of course) would be perfect.
