Would a jodhpur boot (rain last) fit nearly the same as a rain last derby?  I have a higher instep so worry that it might be an issue.

Rain has a higher instep. And a derby is easier on the instep as well.

Thanks in advance.

Rain is wider in the toe and heel. I wouldn't go up. What joint are the Hiros snug at?

Gents, wanted to confirm something:

 

Which Carmina lasts offer the highest instep - Rain and/or Inca?  Is there anything higher in a balmoral oxford cap toe or a double monk? And could someone please compare their Carmina insteps to other lasts such as the Alfred Sargent 109, AE 5, C&J 236.

 

Thank you in advance.

I thought inca and rain last both fit almost the same? Is the size differences necessary? Just wondering.

Inca is rounder in the toe box area. I wear 8 UK in both but the Rain occasionally pinches my pinky toe with it's more aggressive taper on the outside of the toe box. Inca is a slightly better fit for me and my wide feet.

Is the Rain last bigger in lenght than the Simpson?

I'd say length is about equal but the Simpson has a much narrower heel and lower toe box and instep.

Having trouble deciding between a Forest loafer and a Uetam loafer.  Any pic comparisons out there?  Comparative thoughts in general?

 

ETA: whoops, forgot there were two threads.

I like the fit of uetem better than Forest especially in loafer.

Are the aesthetics considerably different?  The Uetam is sleeker, from what I can tell?

I have both. I like forest for a derby better and uetem for loafers. Uetem is a last specially designed for loafers.
It's sleeker and forest is more bulky.
