The Official Carmina Sizing Thread - Page 37

post #541 of 754

Is there a single resource that shows the shape of all the Carmina lasts?

 

I wear a 9 in Inca (which might be a quarter size too big, so call it 8.75), curious how that'd compare to Forest.  Or Oscar.

 

Also just curious to see what the different shapes are.

I copied this pic from the Carmina shoe porn thread--post 922.

Lasts are as follows: Rain, Rain, Soller, Simpson, Queens & Forest.

My guess is that you would be the same UK size in the Rain that you are in the 888 F. Hope this helps. As always, no substitute for trying them on

Thank you very much for your help sir!

do any of you guys have experience with the Soller last? If i'm a US9D would I go down 1 full size or a half size?

g - "I'm a US9D" is not a lot to go on as a basis for a fit recommendation.  US 9 in what shoes, on what last? A US 9 in an Alden Barrie last is worlds different from a US 9 in AE 5 last.

 

I can tell you that Soller is a generous, wide-fitting last.  I take a UK 8.5 in Soller, whereas for others - Forest, for example, I take a UK9.

US 9D: Alden Hampton last
US 8.5D: Alden Trubalance last
Uk8F: Alfred Sargent 724 last

Is there a comparison of all the lasts I can look at somewhere?

Not all the lasts, but the most common ones are included. Carmina has like 20-30 different lasts although only about 10 are in frequent use. I've seen lasts like Miami, Rayder, Army, Jersey etc. but I've not seen any actual shoes made up on these lasts except for Rayder (that we might stock sometime after it's gone through some minor modifications).

Thanks, that's great. I'm guessing Carmina doesn't do different widths for it's MTO, right? Just different lasts?

I'm sure that someone more knowledgeable than am I will chime in, but if I remember correctly, Carmina do have different widths for some lasts.

Therefore, on certain models at least, it should be possible to order a wider fitting shoe.

From my understanding the Rain and Forest last are available in wider widths in a MTO.

Which Vass Lasts are closest to the Inca or rain Lasts from carmina?
post #554 of 754
I want to do an MTO but I'm unsure on sizing. Is there somewhere in the US I can order a couple of sizes to try on and then return? Kind of a dick move maybe but there is no retail location near me.

My left is 8D AE 5 & 2-222 last and right is more like 7.5D. AE 5-fifth avenue 8D is my true fit.

I have gather that people go for 7UK in Rain anyone would suggest 6.5UK in rain?
How about Inca
