Well, first thing is to recognize that there is some risk inherent in this if you are ordering online as opposed to trying on in person (the latter of which is better).

 

I also take an E in the AE 5 last and sized down .5 on the Inca last.  I can't really speak to other lasts though, so maybe other members can weigh in if you have more specific questions.

Thanks for the response Brad.

Do I just order a shoe in a "wider" last in my proper shoe length....simple as that?

Not all lasts are available in wide widths. Simpson only has one standard width as far as I know so you couldn't just order a wider size. I think Rain is normally considered an E (US D?) and it's available in EE but I might be wrong.

How much is it to ship shoes back to Carmina if you size a shoe wrong? If it is only $50 bucks after i do my research with all your help it may be worth a shot.

It isn't like Allen Edmonds are a bad shoe so they might be good enough.

USPS for me was about $65 and they sat in customs for about a month in Spain. Fedex would have been faster for $170+ but who's to say they wouldn't have been in customs just as long.

Anyone have experience with Oscar? I have wide feet- 7UK Detroit is good, 7.5 in rain is too tight in the toe, 8UK in Robert is ok but slight heel slip. 8UK in Simpson was comfortable but even more heel slip. I was wondering whether I'd be 7.5 or 8 UK Oscar based on this info. (My detroit and robert last shoes are bluchers and I'm looking at a blucher boot on Oscar.) Thanks!

What width on what last in AE?
post #834 of 836
Hi guys, been through parts of this thread and a bit confused, given I want to buy from Skoak online if possible.

I'm a UK9.5 in pretty much every brand, medium (D) width. In particular, Church UK9.5 D seems to fit me well (a tiny bit loose in the toe box but that's probably more the last). Mr Hare, Gucci, D&G... they all seem to be UK9.5 too.

With that in mind, what size would I potentially be in the Simpson, Forest and Rain lasts?

Thanks!

Medium-high instep (I have flat feet but wear custom orthotics).
