N00b shoe question on lasts

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

Hi all. Up front, I fully acknowledge that this may be the most obvious question in the history of questions, but I'll ask it anyway.

 

Does a narrower shoe last necessarily equate to a narrow shoe? I'm looking at a Meermin shoe on the Hiro last, which is on one of their narrower lasts. Does that mean that a shoe on the Hiro last would fit better or more snugly than a shoe on, say, their Ben or Rui lasts?

 

I'm typically a 9C and, since Meermin doesn't appear to offer "traditional" widths like C, D, EE, etc., I'm wondering if that's how I decide which shoes would work for me.

 

I'll sit down now.

Yes, a narrower last will result in a narrower shoe, all other things being equal.  The upper is stretched over the last, so the shape of the last and the shape of the shoe are directly related.
