That would mean the Islay is marked a 10.5UK? Correct? Just looking for clarification. I hope to acquire the Islay and the Skye someday.
For those who have some of the different boot styles and are more familiar with the different lasts your help is greatly appreciated. Past experiences I have been normally a 10.5UK across all makers (Church's, Cheaney, Trickers...). For reference, I can do a 10UK Trickers but prefer the 10.5UK. Most end up being a bit long but end up molding to the feet nicely, long heel to ball I am guessing. I am a 11D in Alden Barrie boots. I have had success with this until I visited a C&J retailer this weekend. I must have sucker written on my forehead. I was sent home with a 10UK Coniston and a 11UK Snowdon. The 10UK Coniston is snug. I tried the 10.5UK Coniston and it felt big, but was not permitted to flex or bend the boot. The 10UK Snowdon was way tight. They had no 10.5UK so the 11UK it was and they are a bit long. Both boots are remarkable by the way!
What I am asking... is this type of sizing normal for C&J lasts? Going up and down 1/2 sizes?
Any help is greatly appreciated!
