Yours look so narrow and pointy. In this picture thay look more like the Trickers 1829 last?



When are they expected to be ready?

maybe thats were we differ, I dont think they look narrow at all. its difficult to gauge the toe shape with that angle. i think you need a top down view to make that determination

Its deceiving, but Ben last is far from wide or roomy.  It is a narrow/slim last akin to JL 8000, G&G TG73, EG 82.

No, there are not plenty of pictures if you search google, only a couple of wing tip that does not look like the Meermins product image of the BEN last and a pair of suede. And only one pic from above.

kev777 how do you experience the last? Can you take any more pictures from the top and maybe a few when you are wearing them?

I think the last looks much pointer in real life than in this picture.

They def aren't the REY as that very slim last just doesn't fit my feet, notice how much wider the BEN last is in the last comparison picture posted a few posts back!!

I know but in the side by side with the brogue they look nothing like each other!

Brogue?! Cap toe even! Those look good on BTW! (If a little tight)

Exactly my thought. I have not seen one shoe that looks like the shoe in the product image.
