I say if your 10 Hampton is snug, go 10.5 on the Grant. If you've got a little play, stick with 10.

This is sound advice.

Uhmm... According to this the Grant is larger than the Hampton.  Are you sure with this advice?

I have Aldens on almost every last they make. That chart is of questionable usefulness, e.g., the Leydon Last (5th from the left) is perhaps the smallest last they make.

^ I was the one who created that chart, and while it was just meant to be a generalization, I can tell you from personal experience that my advice should hold true. However, the Grant can be a tweener depending on your feet.

Well, I can't argue with that!!!  The Hampton definitely isn't too snug, so I will go with my normal size.

 

Thank you for your help!!

Great looking chart.
