That was a cross post of mine. I apologize,  I am having problems with the editor??.

post #244 of 254

I am looking for a pair of dark brown wingtips. However, I am looking for a sleek shoe (not the blobby AE Park Avenue looking shoes). I like chisel toes, but do not exclude non chisel toes. Which last should I be looking for in Yanko?

 

BTW, I am an 8E in AE Park Avenue, and I can fit a 8.5 in Meermin's Olfe last. I'll be getting in Meermin Park last size 8.5 tomorrow and i'll see if those fit well.

Interesting discussion about quality of the Yanko shoes and other brands in the same segment. For obvious reason we are carefull when talking about the quality in terms of our oppinion since we prefer that the feeling of the quality is told by you (customers) instead that has tried the shoes. However we are happy to provide some facts that might shine some light to the subject smile.gif

Yanko uses leather of very high quality from well renowned tanneries and for most of our stock models the leather is from D'Annonay. Also other parts of the shoes have parts that are a bit unusual in this price range. For example the heel is made out of leather board wich is something not every brands in this price level uses.

There is a neutral review of one of the Yanko models (one of our stock models) here:
http://translate.google.com/translate?hl=en&sl=sv&tl=en&u=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.shoegazing.se%2F2014%2F10%2F05%2Frecension-yanko-rawley-cuero%2F&sandbox=1

The review is in swedish but above its translated with Google Translate. Its written by a well known swedish blogger that has the blogg www.shoegazing.se. He writes a bit about the quality and how he compares it with other shoes in the same level. We got a question about the review and how the blogger got the shoes etc. Since it was written in the review we didnt think of writing it here as well. But as stated in the review we can inform you that the blogger received the shoes in exchange of ad space. And after using the shoes for a while he wrote the review. This is also explained in the review next to the price info. You can also find his reviews of several other brands here: http://www.shoegazing.se/populara-inlagg/.

I hope the above helps a bit, and feel free to ask if you have further questions. Of course you are also welcome to send an private message if you have personal fitting questions etc.

Thanks for the link, good info..

 

I really love 915 last (I have Simpson too).  What it is your opinion about Yanko insoles/outsoles?.  Do you know their suppliers?.

 

I think that my list it is quite objective.  Notwithstanding the clasiffication I made, there are not much quality increase among them (same construction, supliers and more or less same materials, crasftmanship and QC).

 

Fit is first, so I can say 915 last is really good for my feet and I love the shape of the last.

 

At those prices, GYW shoes in Spain are really good value, specially if you compare them with RTW GYW english shoes in the same level of quality/crasftmanship.

 

Just my two cents.

I dont know the supplier of insole/outsole at the moment. My own personal opinion is that the outsole is very durable for this kind of leather sole. The insole is comfortable with quite much support for the arch compared with other shoes in this level. Please note this is my own opinion, hopefully some other members can add their own neutral opinion as well smile.gif

Sorry missed to answer this question before. I think you should look at the last 961.

Here is the Yanko wingtip in dark brown on last 961: http://www.skolyx.se/en/home/194-wingtip-dark-brown.html

 

post #250 of 254

For the 961 last, Size 7.5UK (8.5 US)?

 

BTW, I am an 8E in AE Park Avenue, and I can fit a 8.5 in Meermin's Olfe last. I'll be getting in Meermin Park last size 8.5 today and i'll see if those fit well.

 

I am also interested in a pair of double monk straps in the 915 last. What would I be in that last?

 

Which last is sleeker? I can't really tell from the pics you provided earlier of the shoes.

I would advice to choose same UK size in Yanko as Meermin. However for myself I sized down 0,5 in both last 915 and 961 compared to Meermins Hiro last. Im not to familiar with the Park last I must admit.

You can see more pictures of the shoes and different lasts by checking our shoe section our our mto guide.

For more personal fitting advice, please feel free to send a pm and we will discuss it further there. (just think its better so we don't disturb other readers of the thread with several posts about very individual fitting advice)

FWIW, I wear an 8.5 in 962 and a 9 in Hiro. Don't have a 961 though.

Unfortunately, I do not own a Meermin in the hiro last as it's not sleek enough in my opinion. I do have both the Olfe last in size 8.5 US (7.5 UK) and Park last in size 8.5 US (7.5 UK). Park is a little snug and Olfe is a little roomy, but is more comfortable than the Park. I do like the look of the Park much better though. Do you ahve either the Park or Olfe last?
