It's a shame too, as I absolutely adore the shape of the Inca last.

Check the Bonafè thread. I'm in for Bonafè also...

I wish I could get the uetam last to fit my feet. Which is why I've got a carmina listing in b&s.... Do your thing if need be, mods. Thanks!

Nobody in this thread knows how to spoiler photos. :fu:

 

 

 

Those snuff suede captoe brogues are the business though.

Gentlemen... What do you think about the Robert last: fit and looks? I have tried Simpson (too narrow) and Rain (too wide -- at least in the heel). The images on the Armoury site look a bit blobby (if that is the right word?) to me. Looks better on the skoak website... But it is still hard for me to tell.

Ive tried Robert this week. Rain is too wide for me, Forest almost perfect, Simpson feels great in the same size as well.

However Robert feels even more narrow than Simpson, I don't know why, it also looks very weird, not well designed in my opinion.

Some (including me) say that the robert last is one of their favorites. It's on the narrow side especially in the toebox. It's not blobby to me. I would say the forest last is blobbier. But that's a vague term and it depends on your preference. If you can fit it, I'd say it's a pretty nice looking last.

It's been described as "almond-shaped", and I find that to be accurate.  Also, everything that @dalevy said...

I'd add that Forest is "blobbier" in part because the height of the toe is pretty uniform. The toe of the Robert last tapers down, which I think is more attractive. The fit is similar to Forest, but the toe box and heel are maybe a bit narrower, the instep a bit lower. I'll repeat that I think it's Carmina's most attractive last.
