Hey guys, 

 

Hate to belabor you all with another sizing question, but I was considering picking up a pair of Islay boots. For comparison, I am a 9UK in Edward Green's Dovers (E606 last) which translates to a 9.5 US. Should I go for the pair in 8.5 UK or 9 UK in the Islays?

 

Thanks!

I have neither of these lasts so wonder which would give the greater width. Does anyone with a wide foot have experience of either of these please?


I have the Connaught in a U.S. 10D, bought at Barneys in NYC, hence the American sizing.  I found the last narrow, resulting in the right shoe needing 2 stretchings before it was comfortable, as my r. foot is longer and wider than my left.  I have never been able to determine whether a Barneys branded Connaught 10D is the same shoe as a C&J UK 9E.  Anyway, it is a great shoe, but with my feet, I might go with the Radstock if I had to do it all over again.

Hello,

 

I have a question about sizing. Im into the Lindrick MTO with 325 last.

The good size for me is 8 with Pembroke (325) but 7.5 on Skye3 (335).

 

I am wondering if I should consider the last and go to 8 or consider the fact that Lindrick is close to the Skye3 with a different last.

 

So 7.5 or 8?

 

Edit : I have Marlow/Darlton on 8D that fit perfectly but I don't know the last and if it is English or US size on RL bye C&J.

 

Thanks for your help.

 

Vincent.

A quick update, I went with the Connaught in a size 10 (UK) F width (it is available in E and F in the black calf). The fit is almost perfect , little snug but after wearing in the house for half an hour the super soft leather has stretched just a little and they are now ideal. Given I have quite a wide foot this surprised me. I have to say they are a lovely shoe. Will post some pictures later.

Connaught black calf. Superb quality and that undefinable C&J appeal.
