post #1111 of 1240

Justin, i have the Madison in suede at 9.5UK. It is a tad loose but i have since used heel pads to mitigate the issue.
Can you advise the measurement of the 9.5 vs the 9.0?

I would like to see how much smaller the 9 is. I am a UK9 in most shoes/lasts. Thanks much.

No problem, do you want the insole or outsole measurement?

Also, did I recommend you going up? Curious to why you went with UK9.5 instead of UK9

First day wearing the Madison, killing my feet, which is kinda expected. Pulling my OTC wool socks down constantly is not. Idk what it could be, this has never happened before, they're not falling, each step yanks em down. Hoping it resolves w break in.

I am sorry they are killing your feet. That also happened on my first/second day due to the band across. It should break in to be good.

The sock thing is an inexplicable phenomenon. I probably have about 20 pairs of my loafers (all cut on the same base pattern except shoreline) and one or two of them do this to me too. But it will also depend on the sock. Some socks stay up while others will fall down. I can't gather why but it just is.....I don't wear my shoes so often (as I have so many) but I would imagine that over time it will get better once the leather has had time to loosen/form

Here is a sneak peek at one of our 5 new colorways in our button boot model, Westlake.

We will be holding a presale on Mon, Sept. 5th with stock due to arrive in October

Stay tuned for more pics of the other colors

Insole measurement please.

I want to see the difference in length and width.

 

Yes, you recommended going 0.5 up, because i have a high instep and had issues with certain narrower lasts (Uetam, Simpson in UK9). I love the Madison 9.5 btw. It is easy to slip in and out, but wanted to see if i can get away with a 9, if i wanted a 'dressier' black calf loafer. Thanks.

I too hope/expect they'll break in soon as they already received compliments and I'm very impressed with the construction and quality of my first pair of J Fitzpatrick shoes! They're easily on par with my Carmina and the C&J benchgrade I used to own (Don't think I ever owned any handgrades). As for the sock thing - I'm glad I'm not alone. Most of my socks are a wool/nylon blend from Lands End, I'll experiment with other pairs and see what happens but I again think it's probably the band causing the problems. I was impressed with the fast shipping and even if I have to sell these I'll definitely buy from you again!

UK9 insole: 29.1cm
UK9.5 insole: 29.8cm

7mm of difference.....the problem is that the suede feels looser than the leather would, so if you stuck with the same size, the leather would feel naturally tighter.

I hope that this helps

I hope that this does not sound patronizing but I can guarantee you that if you wore a thin cotton sock it would make a ton of difference on the tightness of the loafer. People often forget the difference a sock can make when it comes to fit. Maybe worth a try?

Nonetheless, I really appreciate your kind words, they mean a lot. Thank you
