The Official Carmina Sizing Thread - Page 7

post #91 of 659
Carmina Double Monk INCA 7,5 fits well very tight as i like it, which size in Wholecut on the Rain last? The Rain Last is more slim, so would you suggest go up to 8 or stay with 7,5 as in the Incas?

I am trying to get Carmina shell boots in Soller last. I am 5.5E in C& J 337. Can you help me with sizing?

I'm thinking Inca, rain and soller are a starting point because they are listed as the wider lasts but it's hard to find info about instep & heel fit.

I'm the same, except low instep. Essentially, a wider, low foot with a narrow heel. Any sizing advice with which Carmina lasts fit best would be greatly appreciated.

For reference, I wear a 9E in the C&J 348 (heel is too wide), I wear 9F in Cheaney 175 last (heel again too wide), and 10D in Alden Barrie (heel is again wide). Pretty much most shoes I buy fit me well everywhere but the heel.

If you're wearing standard width C&J, Cheaney and Alden shoes, your feet are definitely not wide. Or are you sizing up to get the width in the forefoot but then finding the heels too roomy?

Not sizing up as far as I can tell. I measure a 10D on the Brannock device so I'm fairly sure that 9.5D in Barrie or 9E UK seems about right size wise. I just assumed my foot was wider, I think in relation to the width of my heel, but it's about finding the right lasts, I guess.

It is a dark brown and it looks beautiful in natural light and they use DHL.

 

This is the same leather (I have the shoes you linked as well but not a picture handy)

is it me or is close to $100 usd cheaper to buy off carmina's eshop rather than the armoury?

I like the black wingtips on the rain last and wanted to just make sure my math was on point. looks like carmina eshop = $389 and the armoury is about $489

Are they standard calfskins? Those are 275 euros = $330 dollars by my calculations.
