post #10981 of 12779

If anybody has the Purdey Islay's in a 10UK that they aren't satisfied with, I'd be more than happy to take them off your hands! 

post #10982 of 12779

Hey C&J experts, wondering what size to go with for in the 337 last? 

 

I am 12D Brannock (a little closer to 12.5 length)

11.5D Barrie

11.5E AE 5 last

12E Rancourt Ranger Moc

11D Wolverine 1K

11F UK Loake Capital last

11F UK 026 last.

I wear 11.5D Barrie and UK11.5E 337 (Belgrave).

If a shoe fits fine overall but the shoe opening is slightly too big (near the ankle), is there anything to do to tighten it up in that area? Here's a pic:



Thanks in advance!

Wow so that would be 0.5 size up. Noted. Thanks.

Gorgeous!!

As a side point it seems to me that you too have some extra room in the shoe opening near your ankle. Do you find that you are slipping a bit even though the shoe technically fits?

I think that you may need to try a different last.  It may get a little better as your foot settles into the footbed but probably not enough to eliminate the gap.  Some people with high arches can't fit in to some lasts that are for "normal" feet.  Or, some people with flat feet have the converse problem.

Both mosy and mgrod need to find shoes/lasts that actually fit their width. Their ankles are swimming in there.

Try Italian brands.

I wouldn't say swimming. I've seen worse.

Thanks! I believe my instep is only moderately high but I suppose that could be the problem. I do have this issue with all C&J lasts that I've tried and i'd hate to have to rule out such great shoes from my collection!

I think mine looks worse than it actually is due to the close-up photo, although I agree this doesn't seem to be an ideal last for me. I may keep anyway bec the slippage is minimal and I'm hoping as my foot settles into the footbed the gap will diminish a bit (as per @coolarrow's suggestion...
