TIA

 

I wear UK8 on the Rain, and US8.5D in Alden LHS, Van last.

 

I recall other members complained about heel slippage on the Alden LHS and sized down half a size.

Having a really hard time with fit for Allen Edmonds, and hoping Carmina will give me my next best bang for the budget option.

 

Here are the sizes I've tried:

 

Brannock measurement:   9D

 

Allen Edmonds (5 last):  

9D = slightly too long and too narrow for sure.  

8.5E = slightly too snug in the toebox.

8.5EEE = too wide, gets creasing/bulging when walking in toe box.  

 

(Haven't been able to try on an 8.5 EE size though because it's rare).  Have similar issues with their other lasts.

 

The best fitting shoe I ever had was a cheap $100 florsheim in 9D.  Fit like a glove.

 

Looking for a perforated cap-toe (dark brown) and a wingtip (medium brown).

Looks like the Rain or Inca lasts would be for the cap-toe.  Forest last for the wingtip.  (Didn't see an affordable blucher wingtip - only cordovan)

anyone know carminas policy on price adjustments?  ordered a pair at full price for $450 and today saw it in the clearance section for $360.

I wear a 8.5 Barrie, 8 trubalance. Any chance a 7.5 forest would work for me?

I did the best I could to depict the slippage I'm talking about. The Inca is just like the Rain so I'm treating it that way. These are all 10.5UK:

 

 

Comparison (Simpson - Uetam - Inca)

 

Uetam length vs Inca length (Same, if not more for Inca)

 

Uetam width vs Inca width. Note the height comparison as well. Which is why I'd size down if the Rain/Inca has any room in the sides for you. The toe should always have room. 

 

 

Uetam loafer slippage. My foot slides forward due to the long opening.

 

 

 

Inca slippage - Less, but still there.

 

Simpson slippage - best fitting shoe ever. Doesn't rub, doesn't slip. 

 

 


Would you advice to size down a half size if I fit the Simpsons like you do? I have bit of room at the toes, but comfortably snug width wise
