How did you go about darkening the grain by the way?

Thanks. Condition, brush, black cream polish, brush, condition, final brush.

Medium-high instep around the top of the ankle but quite snug around the lower part of the ankle. Sleek and slightly snug fitting vamp, and a standard wide heel. Quite similar to the 363 last in terms of fit and shape (ball to ball and heel to ball), fits like the 946 last around the instep. Roomy toe box in terms of volume.

 

For reference, here's my sizing chart again:
 

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

Carmina

Rain: UK 8
Forest: UK 8
Oscar: UK 8
Robert: UK 8
Simpson: UK 8.5
Uetam: UK 8.5
Detroit: UK 7.5
Soller: UK 7.5
Queens: UK 8

Inca: UK 8


Enzo Bonafé
946: UK 8
363: UK 8
363 MOD: UK 8
804: UK 8
2102b: UK 8

74945: UK 8

Edward Green
202: UK 8 E
82: UK 8 F
184: UK 8 E
888: UK 8 F
606: UK 8 E

Gaziano & Girling
TG73: UK 8 F
MH71: UK 8 F
DG70: UK 8 F
GG06: UK 8 F

 

 

Thanks! I thought I'd ask here rather than email or PM so that everyone has the benefit of the information: I can wear 9.5 on the Rain last comfortably, but I have low volume feet (low instep, narrow). Would 9.5 on the Bonafe 74945 work, or is it likely to be too roomy?

Reading that I should size down 1.5 from US sizes for Carmina Detroit lasts is both a relief and a disappointment. Those PTB's...

Would you be interested in a U-Wing/Rain boot in the new burgundy museum (not the old, almost black version). Checkout the GF thread for a mock-up.

I wonder how Enzo was able to hand welt the rubber sole on that Austerity boot? I remember hearing about another company having difficulty with hand welted rubber soles.

I actually was wondering the same thing when I saw those Enzo boots.
