X-post from EG
Hi , I would need some sizing advise for the Thorpes in the MH71 last, please.
I wear 8.5 E for the EG 606 Dover shoe and the fit is very good. I read here (homework done) that both last are very similar and that the MH71 last is a bit looser in a boot than in a shoe ( ?). I would not like to have to use very thick socks for those boots.
For those who have the 606 in a shoe and the MH71 in a boot: Should I get the Thorpes in:
a) 8.5 F size (same size than 606 last in a shoe). Hope not to have problems with my medium/highish instep.
b) 8, 5 G (same lenght but more girth).
c) 9 F. ( size up by 0.5)
I wont have the chance to try them on before I pull the trigger (no retailers in Spain), so thanks a lot for your help.
I am also a 8.5E on 606 last. I have a high instep and am slightly wide at the ball, so keep that in mind. I wear a 9F in MH 71 shoes and boots. Have tried 9.5E but those were too loose for my preference. Again, that's what works for my foot shape, ymmv
