post #1516 of 6458
Repost from the MTO thread:

I just wanted to post the 2030, 2040, and 110 lasts. Unless you are really familiar with footwear, it's sorta like trying to guess what a person is going to look like based purely on their skeleton, but you can at least get an idea.

I have not seen a shoe on the 2040 last in person, but from Guy's description, it is like the 2040, but a bit more ergonomic. The 110 last, as you can see, is considerably more rounded and not elongated, and has considerably more room through the midfoot and the toe. It's a much more "traditional" last. In terms of width, iirc, 2030 is the narrowest last, and 110 is the widest.

i'm fitting 6 on Tricker's cuz i got wide feet & barely able to fit in a 2005 last.
so, what's the main difference between the 2040 & 2045, as compared to the 2005? does it have more room up front than 2005?






edit: i'm seriously contemplating on another Viberg soft-toe w/different leather make-up/config... maybe something with a bit of texture [like photo below]





... but in reverse combo ... ie, pebble or scotch grain shaft w/smooth vamp & backstay [as below]__ in brown HH or #8 burgundy, or even natural CXL.

Wish there was a try on program like Rancourt has frown.gif Having commitment issues without knowing fit and size. Any major stores carry these? Barneys I think or online only?

Barney's, I think. You can submit a foot tracing, and they can tell guesstimate a size for you. If anyone wants to try on the 2030 in a 10UK, I can lend you my pair, as long as you pay shipping both ways (and remember that it is in nubuck, which is pretty unyielding).

Wow! Can't believe you'd offer that, would think you'd want to wear immediately. I'll stop by the local-ish barney first, but if they don't have any may take you up on that. Been meaning to pm about belt recs anyways smile.gif

I think is saw a mention of a natural shell cordovan service boot for a Germany company called 10 oz. Anyone else heard of it? I'd love to see pics. Didn't even know natural shell existed.

Do you mean 14 oz? If so yes, I think they arrive September in the store. It's a shop in Berlin.

edit: here's the only pic I could find btw

Beer and art too. Can't remember the gallery where you get to drink all you want then add it to the 'beer art'

Is the 110 last widest? No 4E last available?

And huge Bratwurst sausages on a tiny bun, for a really inexpensive but satisfying lunch.

There are other lasts. I'll ask Guy whether there are any wider than the 110, but ime, the 110 is pretty generous. It's not quite as wide as the Trickers 4444 last, which is ridiculous (I wear a 9 UK in that, and there is room. I am not like that for any other last, anywhere else). but it is probably wider than the same size 4497 Trickers last, which is pretty generous already.
