Some folks might find the following comparison shots of 3 different EB lasts useful.  A derby in last 363MOD size 7UK, a lazyman oxford in last 804 in size 7UK and a monk strap in last 946 size 7.5UK.

 

I also tried to capture the instep but Im not really sure if I was able to capture them properly.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

May I also add that EB is an awesome shoemaker, and Skoak is tops as a retailer.

post #2140 of 2837
GMTO interest check guys are any of you Enz Bonafe G width in 946 last? I am planning on ordering following chukka model on 946 last in G width.

Enzo Bonafe chukka with Goyser stitching millerighe or double leather soles in Betis Chianti leather.
Anybody interested in joining me let me know. @RogerP, @justinkapur are you G width on 946 last too?

So this model




In this color, Chianti is the one in the middle.

Posted this in the Skoak thread, but figured I'd post it here as well:

 

I love the shape of Carmina's Inca last, but the instep is a bit too low for my foot. Considering EB's lasts have higher insteps, which Enzo last would be most similar to the Inca last? From what I've seen, the 804 last looks fairly similar, but I'm not entirely familiar with all of Enzo's different lasts.

You are right. 

In terms of toe shape the 804 would be most similar to the Inca. Both are almond toe. 

The 804 is however rather elongated, and I go down a half size for it. 

In terms of fit, I have oxfords only in 804 size 8, and in boots size 8.5..... So I can't give a very fair comparison. But comparing the 2 (804 vs Inca both in size 805 albeit boots for one and oxfords for the other), the 804 is definitely longer, roomier in the toe box with a higher instep. 

I have seen your pics showing you wearing Inca lasted shoes, and it does seem you have a really really high instep. If I were you I'd probably take your normal size for 804 and not size down. At least prob not for your first pair. Given the volume of your foot, you might probably "fill up" the shoe better.

Thank you for the response! I don't think my instep is extraordinarily high. It's definitely on the higher side, but Carmina's Rain last for example fits well in the instep with even a little room to spare. For reference, I am a US 8.5D/E on Brannock and wear size UK7.5 on Carmina's Rain and Inca (though instep is tight on Inca), 8E on Alden's Barrie, 8.5E on Alden's Leydon, and 8E on Allen Edmonds' 5-last. I ordered a pair of Enzo boots on the 363MOD in size UK7.5 as well, so I'm hoping those will fit well and not be too big.

I find the 363 MOD last instep HUGE.. and I have trouble with instep being too low for me on Rain last in same size. I order 363 MOD in 0.5 down.

 

For boots, 0.5 size too big isn't too much of an issue but you might face some looseness towards the heel due to the instep.

EB is a great value maker btw. I like them a lot, very good overall, and handwelted to boot.

You almost don't really need anyone else.
