Hi everyone! Been browsing SF quite a while, but first time joining and posting. I have a sizing question.
I fit very snug in in Allen Edmonds 9D (Park Avenue/5 Last), and was wondering what sizing I should go for? I emailed customer service with my measurements and was told to opt for a size 8UK on every last, but a 8.5 on the New Rey.
Here are my measurements:
- Width: 104mm
- Length: 264mm
After reading through a good 100 pages, I've seen a good amount of debate on which size fits. I'm not too worried about Hiro/Olfe - I'll probably go with a 8UK. BUT, i am worried about New Rey. Is the New Rey last really that more narrow than the Olfe or Hiro? And if I do get a 8.5UK for the New Rey, will the extra length offset the added width? The Linea Maestro model I want only comes in New Rey and I don't want to pay extra for MTO...
If anyone's interested, here are the shoes I'm looking at:
If everything goes well, I'll update when they arrive.
You should NEVER buy new ray. Unless you really have abnormally thin feet.
you can only go as this as olfe/hiro if you are an 9D in AE.
New ray is closer to 9B in AE. (From what I hear)
You are either an 8.0UK-olfe or an 8.5-UK olfe. (I perfer olfe over hiro its more sleak and euro)
In a boot both would probably fit. But in an shoe you may want to chance it on the 8UK so you dont have heel slip.
