well, with 100 MTO, not so great, but at 320 that would be awesome, guess need to think about group buy at certain point nod[1].gif

Was wondering if anyone knows how the Hiro or New Rey compares to Allen Edmonds 5-65 last, specifically Park Avenues. I have been measured to be 7D at the Allen Edmonds store and tried on the Park Avenues and they fit pretty well, but due to really bad bowing near the ankles I had to return them, so I'm looking for a pair of black oxfords for formal occasions.

 

Looking at the classic black oxford 101198 on the Hiro last or spend a little more for the Linea Maestro oxford 10172 on the New Rey Last.

 

Luisa responded to me 6UK for the Hiro, but I checked and the New Rey last seems to be narrower and suggests people go up half a size for that. So on New Rey would I need to go for a 6.5UK?

420 for shell not so good!? And you get to take 21% vat off that too! Not to mention pick your last, sole type, lining and weird shell colours if you want!

Can't tell 100% from the pictures, but this could be a burgundy shell boot:

I wear a 9D on the 5-65 AE last. I purchased the double monks in the Hiro last in a size 8.5UK. Fit is a tad big only on my right foot, but I think 8UK would be too small and uncomfortable. Hope that helps!

 

Also - I have bowing at the ankles only when I walk in my AEs. Never really bothered me, but maybe I should reconsider?

I have infinite patience, so 320 EUR take off 20% (21%?) VAT sounds better to me...

The proxy is open to our American friends as well, but if you live in Toronto we can do local pick up.

I'll carry a maximum of 4 pairs (only 1 pair person) and only charge 20 euros each (as I said, 6 hours both ways).

And obviously you pay for shipping from Canada.

If interested, pm me. Like I said, 4 pairs only.

And out of curiosity, is there a Carmina boutique in Madrid?

Oh geez...you had me at Toronto. My fiance is going to kill me (she bought used wedding dress to keep our wedding budget in check). Need to justify my "fancy" shoe purchases. Still need to figure out how the loafers fit compared to Hiro. Will PM you with more details. When is your trip to Madrid again?

That's what I do. Renovateur occasionally. Combination of saphir cream and wax polish ... and a few drops of water now and then between application of the wax.

They are the first run of Museum calf MTOs. The Olfe last suits my feet (almost) ideallly.

Yeah, mine are the first run of the museum calf as well. How many times have you worn them? I've worn mine max 5 times or so.
