You have a narrow foot, right? Remind me what size you wear in other brands?

You wear (probably) 43.5 E width in Vass. You dont wear Carmina...

i think the U last would fit him well... that seems to run a smidge narrow.... but a standard E width in the F last wouldnt work.

Standard width for Vass is F. E width is the narrow fitting.

Do Carmina not come in narrow?

It's big in the heel, though, which is challenging for many people. I have to go down to a 44.5 in it. Wear an 11 on the Simpson and TG73, which tend to run on the narrow side as well.

You guys have way too many reference points for your shoes. Before I found Style Forum, all I knew was, I wore a size 10.5 shoe. Those were much simpler times.

Ive never seen a narrow Carmina, but I have seen a wide one (the shell boots I have up now are a 7 EE) so it is possible.

The only shoe that I have that would fit you would be the St. Crispins inverted V Cap, which are an E width (US Narrow). you would be a 10 E in that shoe. I don't know if I have that size but I will check.

The Carmina Simpson last is narrower so it is recommended to take 0.5 sizes up.

Carmina does make narrow width in certain lasts, but good luck getting them without going MTO. EE width is actually standard width for certain lasts like Rain and Detroit, while Rain can also be ordered in wide (EEE) and narrow (D).
