Well, I never had this problem before. However, they were out of my size in the store, so they ordered me a pair online. I usually take a 9 in AE, so that's what I did with these. The PA last seems narrower than the Weybridges (that fit me fine) and there lies the problem. I'm sure I'd have chosen a wider or longer shoe if I were trying them on in the store. Thanks for the replies. I'll probably try to exchange for another last. Is the Strand on a different last from PA?
