FYI all, they added the new string loafer in Maracca Suede to the site today! Going to send them an email and switch my order for the snuff ones to maracca - looks more spring/summer appropriate now that I see them side by side.

Please search the rest of this thread. You have fat feet.
New ray will not fit you.
Ofle/Hiro will probably barely fit you. But i would not take the risk with E size feet.
Clicking: cutting the pattern pieces out of the leather
Closing: sewing them together
Lasting: pinning the closed pattern onto the last
Welting: attaching the welt to the insole
Making: attaching the sole and removing the last
Finishing: final trimming, polishing and burnishing
Thanks for the lesson in terminology!!!
I wear the same sizes in the AE lasts. I have a 8.5 Hiro Double Monk which has some heel slip (I think it's probably a little long). i tried on an 8UK in the Olfe at the trunk show and it fit great. I think an 8 UK in Hiro/Olfe will be fine for you since the 5 and 2 lasts are narrow anyway.
New Rey....I doubt it. From what I read, it barely fits normal width feet. If you do, you'd likely have to go 8.5UK and you'd be compromising fit elsewhere.
Truthfully what happens is they realease trendy shoes that have a 1 year fashion half life.
Once they stop selling they cut them and put something else out.
These models are probably no longer selling now. So they were replaced by other things. You can always MTO them if you like them enough.
