I guess I should rephrase, I'm wondering about picking up an 8.5uk in simpson because my feet are narrow, I just want to know if anyone else goes a full size down due to narrow feet or if that makes the shoe too short lengthwise.

you might find that the Oscar will fit better in the toe area (without having to change sizes) - it is a little roomier compared to the Robert.

Soller and Rain is also two lasts with a very similar fit, which is wider and generous than Forest/Oscar.  Please e-mail us for further fitting advice, sales@skoab.se

 

I always thought the Forest last was slimmer than Oscar based on pictures. Maybe I should try Forest one day.. some nice boots on that last.

As Gabriel mentioned, I find Robert and Oscar just about the same in terms of length.

Oh man... Who is an 11UK in Soller?  

 

There is a sand suede chukka online that is damn near free...

Very cool collection. Thank you for sharing. What's the Nevis makeup for which you wait?

I amend all earlier statements. Tan Kudu is cool.

I wish this Isham in Kudu were offered again. I prefer the Nevis to the Thorpe, so the Thorpe GMTO in Kudu holds little interest for me.

There were people interested in Isham in kudu but that project died down it seems.

Purchased a pair of Carminas yesterday. Really impressed with the online system and interface as well as the customer service.

Makes me want to place another order right away. devil.gif
