You can get a design patent for some fashion designs. This wouldn't protect the last, but it could protect the non-functional aspects of the shoe.

 

Here's the first article I found explaining this:http://www.mhmlaw.com/files/Carani%20-%20Shoe%20Retail%207-09.pdf

MTO details sound awesome. Now I just need to figure out whether I am a 8 or 8.5 in the Olfe last. I think I'm most accurately a true 9D in US sizing. Does the Olfe run true to size? My feet are pretty average in shape, nothing difficult to fit like especially flat or high arches.

I recently got a pair of Aldens in 9D on the Barrie last and while I'm keeping them, an 8.5D would definitely have been a better fit if it had been available to me.

Folks I need little help with sizing. Can anyone recommend Olfe or Hiro last size based on following

C&J 337 = 10 E
G&G CG06 = 10.5 E
EG 82/888 = 10.5 E
Carmina Rain = 10 E
AS 109 = 10 F
Church's 173 = 10 F
JL Phillip II 7000 = 10

many thanks in advance.

Ofle and Hiro fit about the same right? Like Hiro in terms of width but could spare a little I think

Also for lasted trees, I got their standard tress on my MTO and it's a terrible fit. The upper part sticks up so the buckles are kinda stretched and it doesn't fill out vamp of shoe as it's too thin

Ofle is marked as E, Hiro is marked as EE on Meermin website. My wide feet would have to go for the Hiro last for a better fit.

Little help please gents? Does anyone know if the Olfe last is wider than New Rey? Luisa stated I could size up a half from UK9 but the Rey is fine lengthwise, just a bit snug in the toebox. Thanks in advance!

My EG 82 10.5/11E fit very similar to Olfe 10UK

Can anyone recommend good shoe trees for the Olfe and Rui lasts? I just got a pair of each and am leaning towards the Hanger Project Ultra trees but am unsure of the fit. I am looking for decent quality trees around $30/pair.

How much wider, enough to stick with my regular size?

Have you tried the shoe trees from Jos a Bank? Their best promotion is 3 pairs for $25 (buy one get two free) If the name bother you, you can just unscrew the name plate.

I have not, I did not figure Jos A Bank to have quality anything much less shoe trees. I'll have to check them out.

The medium Jos. A. Bank shoe trees is almost as lasted trees in my UK 7 C&J 348's, well worth the money.

I'm fairly certain they buy the trees from a major shoe tree supplier. I like them better than my AE shoe trees. (they are not finished, just regular cedar, which I like)
