Me too. It might be the worst fitting last in the world. Forgetting about the wide waist, the difference in width between the toe box and the heel is ridiculous. Human feet aren't set up with a heel that's 2/3 as wide as the forefoot.
If a person actually fits in this last, as apposed to barely being able to find a size they can wear because the shoes look good, they have an odd shaped foot. Aditionally, they must not be able to fit into any shoes made for a more normally shaped foot.
