Is Olfe more narrow than Hiro last?

 

Should I order same size on both last?

 

Anyone got some idea, thanks.

I want to know too cos I've never ordered any last other than the Hiro.

I have found this picture of Hiro (top) and Olfe (bottom) at Depiedencap if this is any help to you.

I still too am interested in a more indepth comparison of Hiro and Olfe.

In both my and meermins opinion the Olfe is slightly narrower than the Hiro, I personally opted for the Ben last for my slightly wider foot. For me the Hiro fits slightly snug and the Ben perfect.

Even EG and G&G aren't perfect. Although I don't think they would do anything too crazy

Is there a Meermin sizing thread like the Carmina thread?

No just ask what you need to know.

Looking into Meermins, I wear AE 5 lasts in 9.5D. What's my equivalent sizing? Specifically considering the double monks.

Here are my thoughts. I'm a 9D in most US sizing, but when I sent in my foot measurements to Meermin, it was recommended that I go with an 8.5UK. In that size, the Olfe is about as perfect a last as I can find -- the shape is exactly what I like, and the fit is impeccable. The Hiro in comparison is a little looser -- it is definitely a last that will feel larger. I ordered two models in the Hiro -- a standard lace-up oxford, and a double-monk. I found that the standard lace-up oxford still fit really well and didn't have much slippage, but actually the double monks are much bigger feeling and slip a lot (so much so that I need some sort of heel insert to make them fit well). I'm not sure why the lace-up works so much better, but it may simply be b/c the laces allow me to tighten up the shoe more.

^^ Hiro last in UK 8.5. The Ama last will also work for you.

Wished they made more shoes in Ama...and I'll say it again...more Burgundy.

FWIW I am a US8.5 and was told to go TTS in Hiro, 7.5UK

I mentioned the lasts of the AE Leeds model and Loake chukka, too.
