What about Rain last? Would it fit a D/E width well by sizing down 1 (UK to US)?

I've yet to compare Simpson and Rain together but I've heard Rain is more forgiving on the instep and 9.5UK just barely does it for me. The pictures make the Simpson look fairly darn slim.

Most of my customers size down one full size from their US sizing on Rain. 

I am 6.5 E US and wear 5.5 on Rain (Although 6 on Rain also works for me as well since I like my shoes comfortable from the get go as of late)

Not a definitive sizing advice but Simpson is no good for people with wide feet :(

If Inca fits you well and Rain is still too narrow for you Simpson just wont work in my opinion...

 

People who has medium to semi-wide feet (like myself) size up half for Simpson (from their normal UK sizing) and that seems to work fine :)

Steve, I might have to try out an Inca for my feet!

Im a big Inca fan too! They are one of the widest Carmina offers in my humble opinion (other than Detroit and Soller)

We have two Inca double monks coming in next week! (navy calf double monk restock & brown calf double monk) 

Cheers!

Not a definitive guide (and feel free to diagree) but here is what I have experienced so far for Carmina last widths

 

Detroit = Soller = Inca > Rain > Forest > Simpson = Alcudia = Uetam

post #2137 of 4298

FYI, I am a UK8.5EE on John Lobb 8000 last

UK8.5EEE on Carmina Rain
UK9 on Carmina Detroit & Soller

UK9F on G&G MH71

UK9E on Edward Green 82/888

UK8.5G on St. Crispins Classic Last

 

I hope this will at least sort some people's mind

Thanks! I ordered the Rain last punch cap toe oxford last night one size down. I'd hate to deal with an exchange but I am feeling pretty confident now.

I just completed my first transaction with GF. I placed an order for a pair of Carmina green suede loafers on Friday evening. I received the shoes today. Less than 72 hours for a trip across the country. Steve even threw in an Abbey shoehorn for good measure. That's some great customer service. Thanks, Steve!
