    Fwiw, I wear a US9D in AE PAs. The AEs are longer because of the #5 last shape, but both fit/feel the same when worn. Ymmv.

    I wear a 10D in AE's - in most lasts including my PA's. Pepe recommended size UK9 in the Hiro last for me. I just received a fedex tracking notice today that says they ( dark brown Classic double monks) will arrive today. I will let you know if his recommendation was accurate.

    Meermin shipped me the wrong pair of double monks yesterday - (brown instead of black).

    The customer service in getting this sorted has been exemplary. I have been shipped the correct black pair and have been offered 10% off the brown pair if I want to keep them with no additional p&p charges. If I dont, then I can ship them back at my leisure and they will refund my postage costs.

    Am I mad to keep both?

    To keep them will be a wise, educated, carbon-neutral and thus economically and ecologically preferred solution. Do it! :)

    I think it's nice also, reminds me of the Carmina Robert last a bit, which I also have. My MTO pair are on the olfe last. To me, the new Rey and particularly the vil are too pointed. olfe is a good middle ground, not pointed but still elegant.

    Just curious...

    Why does the Olfe last include the word "asymmetric" within its name?

    How do the suede wholecuts (101332, Ama last) compare to C&J's Connaught (236 last) or Westfield (341 last)? I am a UK 6.5 in both C&Js. They fit snug but just nice. Should I go with a UK 6.5 for the wholecuts as well?

    Dont know if this helps but im a 6.5E in both the C&J 337 & 341 (Westfields too) and bought the 6.5 in the Double Monks and they fit exactly the same. The monks are on the hiro last which according to the lasts explaination is a slightly more narrow last than the ama. I would go with the 6.5UK FWIW. [​IMG]

    After what I've read the ama last has less room by the toes, so if you got a wider feet, like me, the hiro seems to be a good fit.

    €30. They don't fit inside the shoes as well as Carmina trees for example, but they're half the price...
