Thanks for your great picture of DECO.
I have heard that the last is pointer than current last.
Do you know the size comparison to the DG70?
If I wear UK8E in DG70, what size should I wear in DECO last?

You should be a 8E in the Deco as well.

I will be there in Dallas on Tuesday and see what I can do.

BTW, this thread is NOT doing anything to make that wait time for Tuesday come any faster. Grr.

+1

Dean confirmed the fit is the same across all lasts, and with the one Deco pair I tried on this is consistent with my experience. The Deco last is slightly elongated as compared with the standard lasts (perhaps my 0.5cm), although this is limited to toe box extension.

I'm sure Despos will be much more understanding with taking pics. I had to rush through mine a bit as the gents at Wilkes got nervous when I pulled out the Lumix, even to go so far as to ask me if I'm in the men's shoe business. I suppose I have that "footwear industrial espionage" look about me.

The easiest thing to do is always to ask politely and explain why. If someone says no, then that's that. If they say yes, then bully. At the very worst I can point them at this conversation.

Swedish meatballs are so yesteryear, Ikea has introduced them to the world.
As a Swede you can always introduce Kettering to the delights of Surströmming:

bengal-stripe,
last summer we had a feast for one of our US-students and part of the meal was "surströming" which is a traditionally "poor mans" dish. However, today it is in the northen parts an important dish. Anyway, I have never had such fun when I saw the studentd eyes was about to pop out and his body started to make convulsions. So you need to have an experienced Swede near by when trying this the first time.

Btw, it is made of fermented herrings from the Baltics. Hereby I invite all my clients to have a bite during the fitting :-)

Isn't that dangerous, they might throw up over the new shoes. - Gives a totally new meaning to "individual patina".

I'm next month in Stockholm, but, to be on the safe side, I might stick to meatballs.
