    I would be interested to know your foot measurements and what size Carmina you got.

    For posterity, can I bother you with some more pics?

    Quote:I'll post more pics and measure my feet when I get home. I guess just by eyeballing that pic I posted, I would have to size up to at least a UK 8.5 to get these to fit, but then heel slippage is an issue...

    I recently picked up my first pair of whole cuts, and they're made by Canali.

    I find that Canali's have a roomy last, so it's best to size down, especially in the whole cuts. I picked these up for $369 + tax (half off), so they can be found on sale. At that price, I would pick them over Carmina. (on a side note, some Canali shoes - the ones made in Spain - are made by Carmina). The ones below are made by Campanile for Canali.

    This is what I feared regarding Carmina sizing. My assumption on their EE sizing is that its basically a UK F or a standard US E width. So while this may be considered "wide" to some people, those of us that wear 3E or thereabouts still won't be able to wear them.

    I'm looking forward to seeing your foot measurements, but could you also let us know any other shoes/lasts that you wear and the sizing that fits?

    You probably can't do better than the Vass wholecut on the 3636 last.
