I take an E shoe and prefer a bit of extra width in the toe box. Do you think Hiro last is going to be the best fit for me? I am going to put in a first trial order from the classic collection. Appreciate your thoughts. Thanks

If you like a bit more room, you might try something using the Ama last then see how that feels. At the worst you have a roomy shoe instead of a pair that's too tight.
Those are both gorgeous.
I can't afford so many shoes. How much do these run? I keep buying Carminas. Need to try some of these.
You, dear sir, are yet a young member on SF. You will soon enough realize you have a passionate relationship to double monks, split toes and navy bluchers with purple lining. Be patient. You'll get there. You will also discover that Scottish weather is no reason to not wearing suede.
Agreed. Four months ago I was looking for suede single monks under $400 and thought that was a budgetary stretch and a style stretch.
Now I have Carmina Double Monks with toe taps installed. Outside the budget and outside the comfort zone. But the shoes are gorgeous. They let me get rid of my Macy's house brand square toed slip ons.
Does anyone have any thoughts about oxfords (any brand) that would fit well if a size 8.5 shoe on the Rui last is about the narrowest width and lowest instep that's wearable? My best fitting pair of shoes are 9.5 (US) Santoni Jensens, but they're too long (the toe cap is creased).
Am I basically looking at wide Aldens or Allen Edmonds or what?
Thank you OJ for your reply.
On another note; can anyone with experience of the Olfe last give a brief description of how you perceive it?
Edit: On a third note; is toe iron installed in a regular purchase (if ordered) and not just in a MTO?
