Can anyone comment on how the Aberdeen last fits in comparison to the Barrie last? I've read that the Aberdeen is a bit longer and elongated, but I'm not 100% sure on whether or not to size down like the Barrie.
It's not that it's a bad last, but there are very few people who can make it work for their feet. I think most people forget that the different lasts exist not only to offer different shapes for aesthetic purposes, but also to offer different fit choices for people who have unusual or problem feet. This is why most of my shoes are barrie, trubalance, or plaza (still really want to try Modified because I have a feeling tht last would be perfect for my feet). Those three fit me the best without having to jump around width sizes, which is something I would rather not do.
Anybody know when Shoemart is getting its special makes back in stock? Waiting to hear back from them.
I just got a call from shoemart last week to let me know they had restocked the cigar LHS. I don't remember exactly when I visited their store but it was sometime during the winter when I asked them to contact me when my size came back in stock. So it can take a while, but they certainly do follow up.
