post #751 of 756

@ElliotN and @techaview

 

I am a UK9 in most shoes, including Loake's Capital last, and I take a UK9 in the Rain last. 

 

I don't have any experience with the Simpson last so I can't comment on that.

I see previous posts comparing the Uetam  to the simpson, would anyone have a comparison for the Soller?  I take 8.5 in soller and it fits quite nicely, any tips for what to get in a leather loafter on the Uetam, im using an 8uk on things like loake capital last so maybe for the loafer go an 8?

At least an 8.5. Uetam is similar to Simpson, which is generally half, sometimes a full size up from Soller.

Hey Guys,

 

I was thinking about getting my first pair of Carmina's for the upcoming winter and would therefor like to ask for your adivce:

 

I seem to have quite narrow feet - the 348 Last by C&J for example fits me EXCELLENT, the 341 fits quite good too.

 

Which Lasts would you suggest?

 

After a bit of investigation I have read that especially the "Alcudia" and "Simpson" Last might fight, maybe even the "Robert"

 

Is that something you guys would sign? Which lasts would you guys suggest - any others lasts that might fit?

 

Furthermore: Which one is the least pointiest, as i do not like too pointy shoes?

 

Thanks in advance!

I'm hoping some knowledgeable people will be able to help me out.

Loake Mayfair last: 8 UK (could go down a half size)
Loake Capital last: 8 UK (could probably go down half a size but not as noticeable as the Mayfair)
Allen Edmund 333 last: 9 (was a bit tight at first but stretch nicely after a few wears)

Anyone have suggestions for sizing the Simpson and Rain last? There is a shoe I really like in the Rain last but I slightly prefer the Simpson, any thoughts on the two lasts?

Good morning gents.  I'm hoping to jump in on the MTO jumpers that're on the Oscar last.  My feet are wide so I'm worried that this may not be the best order to start my Carmina collection.  The only reference point I have are AE's.  

 

In the 5 last (park avenue) I'm 10EEE

In the 2-222 I'm a 10EEE, but it's one width too wide

In the 212 (loafer) I'm a 10.5 E

 

Any suggestions for the Oscar Last?  I was recommended a 10 UK by Steve Yoo but wanted to check with others with similarly wide feet.  Thanks!
