Yes
they did in dark brown but did not get pics as they were not on display, but the gentlemen that were there were trying them on.

The hiro looks much wider than the rain last. As for fitting, hiro is also wider than the rain for the same size, but not as much as it looks from the outside.

I definitely disagree. Rain is known as a large last, both wide and long. Hiro is pretty standard. I wear 9,5 in Rain, and 10 in Hiro, and the Hiro still is a bit more snug than the Rain-last.

I wear 9.5 in both.

Strange that people consider the Rain last wide and roomy. I own both the rain, olfe and hiro in 7,5. rain is narrower and tighter across the vamp. If i ever ny a Rain again I will size up for sure. Olfe and Hiro are more or less perfect fits.

I share with u that rain is not a wide last. I think inca is a much wider last.

Perhaps worth mentioning that at least to my understanding the Rain last is good for high instep feet and is thus not an optimal choice for a low instep.

I have a slightly wide foot and a high instep. I tried on both the rain and hiro lasts and found them to fit similarly. Rain is probably a tab bigger in the forefoot imo. Hiro fit perfectly.

I just put an order in for these shoes in 8.5UK...hoping I don't have any issues with the sizing.  I wear a 9.5 US in cole haan air adams cap toe.  Hoping these will fit...scary ordering in from another country without ever trying on the shoes.

+1  For  me, Rain fits perfectly but Hiro crimps my little toe. I suspect it may be the shape of the lasts rather than any difference in measurements.
