Judging by all the wax caked in between the broguing and punched holes I'd say too much wax was applied.

If you have low volume feet, perhaps you could do a 7. Unfortunately, I don't have enough experience to give a definitive answer, but I certainly wouldn't go down 1.5.

I asked Gabriel for measurements and the 6.5UK is quite short. I have Carmina rain and Robert in 7.5UK and they are just a tad too big, I have to wear thicker socks with them. I thought I might need to size down a full size since boots tend to have a bit more volume, but measuring my fleet of carmina, Vass, and EG, 7UK seemed the way to go for this boot.

Hope that essay helps smile.gif

This is perfect. I was thinking to go with a UK7/US8, so that's what I'll go with. I also emailed Skoak and they agreed to go with a UK7.

Hi guys, I am thinking of getting a pair of G&G boots in MH71 (or CG06) last, but am not quite sure which size to get.

I usually fit in shoes with size UK9, US10 and EU43. Currently, I am wearing UK9 for Carmina Rain last and UK9 for Alfred Sargent Drake. 

 

I have read that in general for G&G I should get half a size down (in UK size) from the normal US size. Is it true? Does that mean I should get UK9.5? As it's a pair of boots, should I size up to UK10?

 

Thanks in advance!

If you are a UK 9 in Carmina Rain a UK 9 MH 71 will be too narrow and a 9.5 probably a bit long. I suggest UK 9 in a wide (F) fitting. It's what I wear.

Which GG last would you recommend for someone wearing 10,5 UK Forest and Oscar?

^^^ Should go without saying but do seek advice by email directly from Skoak.
